‘Shin Megami Tensei V’ on the Switch is coming Westward.

A while back, the Japanese trailer for Shin Megami Tensei V on the Nintendo Switch dropped; using Unreal Engine 4 it looked pretty decent. However, the especially good news is that the game will now be getting a Western release.

The Megami Tensei series started back on the Famicom, or NES, back in 1987 in Japan. Essentially, the first game in the series was a standard role-playing game with turn-based battles. However, what made Megami Tensei so interesting was the backdrop of all this against modern-day Tokyo.

Starting with Megami Tensei 2, the very accomplished artist Kazuma Kaneko worked on the character designs, who has worked on many of the games in the series since.

The last Megami Tensei games we had were Shin Megami Tensei IV and Shin Megami Tensei IV: Apocalypse on the 3DS. The move to Switch for the latest game then is notable and shows that the game has clearly had an increase in its budget over the 3DS iterations.

This is no doubt down to the success of Persona 5, which is actually a spin-off from the mainline Megami Tensei series. Atlus clearly feel more confident in backing a new game on more modern hardware with a high-end game engine considering how successful Persona 5 has been in terms of its sales.

While I don’t expect Shin Megami Tensei V to sell 2 million copies globally, it will no doubt be an interesting game that will add further to the already burgeoning library of fascinating titles on the Switch.
