A few weeks ago, the release date for Shin Megami Tensei V was leaked for a release sometime in November 2021. This date has just been confirmed via the e3 Nintendo, and Shin Megami Tensei V  has been officially announced to be launching exclusively on the Nintendo Switch on November 12, 2021. 

That said, there’s a ton to be excited about with this new release for a series old as time, with the Megami Tensei release back in the late 80s. For example, demon fusion will once again play a major role in the game, whereas players will be once able to merge the various demons they come across to forge new ones.

Along with that, the fifth game in the series will once again take place in the alternative dimension of post-apocalyptic Tokyo japan, previously seen in past games such as Shin Megami Tensei 3. 

Shin Megami Tensei V also appears to have a brand new combat system, that features a brand new combo system that will increase as you target the weak points of demons. You will also be able to again negotiate with demons while in combat to get them to flee or join your party.
