Shin Megami Tensei V release date revealed in new trailer

This week during Nintendo’s E3 Direct stream, Shin Megami Tensei V re-appeared with a brand new trailer and more importantly, a final release date. As it turns out, leaks from earlier this month were correct, Shin Megami Tensei V will be releasing worldwide on the 11th of November. 

Atlus announced Shin Megami Tensei V back in 2017, shortly after the Nintendo Switch originally came out. Later that year, the developers clarified that the game was in the prototype phase, indicating a lengthy road ahead. News on the game went silent after that, but it made a return last July with a proper trailer.

Now during E3, a new release date trailer has been released, giving us a better look at post-apocalyptic Tokyo:

Shin Megami Tensei V is a Nintendo Switch exclusive, putting players in the shoes of a student living in Tokyo who gets pulled into another dimension. In this new reality, Tokyo has been destroyed and demons are roaming around.

Combat is turn-based and there are some improvements compared to Persona 5 (Persona is a Shin Megami Tensei spin-off series). We can expect more gameplay and story details a bit closer to release.

Yet, as consoles support higher and higher resolutions, we have seen developers focus less on offering games at such resolutions, instead using new rendering techniques to create what may be the start of the post-resolution gaming experience...
