A new stream has been announced for Atlus’s Shin Megami Tensei 5, taking place today at 8 PM PST (tomorrow at 12 PM JST). Titled “Shin Megami Tensei 5 News Vol. 2″, it will provide the newest details on the upcoming RPG. Announcer Chiaki Matsuzawa will host the stream.
The story should be familiar to fans of the series, focusing on a high-school student who suddenly becomes involved with demons and apocalyptic circumstances. This time around, the player ventures to an alternate dimension that features a Tokyo in ruins and must fuse with Aogami, a mysterious being, to form Nahobino. Not all demons are your enemies though – some can be recruited and fight alongside the player.
This usually requires negotiating with the demon in question and finding the right response. Demons can be fused to create stronger versions with over 200 in total to encounter throughout the game. Shin Megami Tensei 5 is out on November 12th, exclusively for Nintendo Switch.
