Shin Megami Tensei V Details Mistakenly Published, Launches On November 11

Atlus may have accidentally revealed that Shin Megami Tensei V is launching on November 11. Following on from SMT III: Nocturne Remaster HD last month, Atlus' Switch exclusive RPG was first announced back in 2017 and for several years, disappeared from our radars.

Reappearing during a Nintendo Direct presentation last year - which confirmed plans for a simultaneous worldwide release - the official Japanese website has mistakenly been updated early, perhaps in preparation for Nintendo's E3 presentation. As such, we now have story and gameplay details.

Shin Megami Tensei V Details Mistakenly Published, Launches On November 11

If you'd rather wait, then fair warning, there are spoilers below. Thanks to Persona Central, we know SMT V focuses on a "high school student living an ordinary life", before entering a world called "Da'ath", one that's covered by large scale deserts.

Within, our protagonist fuses to become a "Naobino", a forbidden being and we'll enter a battle between gods and demons. Said to feature over 200 demons - both old and new - the website also hints at multiple endings, telling us "The end of the game can diverge in many ways. What is the future you will choose?".

A limited edition is also listed, though we have no idea if that'll launch outside Japan right now. We'll have to wait for formal confirmation on that element, but considering the source, there's little doubt about the rest of this information.
