What will this game be? Hopefully we find out then.
One of the first games that was announced for the Nintendo Switch was Shin Megami Tensei, presumed to be (but unconfirmed as) Shin Megami Tensei 5. This will mark the first entry in the series to be developed in HD, and also the first entry to be built using Unreal Engine. It also marks the next generation transition of the franchise, as well as the first console game in the series since Nocturne came out all the way back on the PS2.
Needless to say, the game is a big deal for fans of the franchise, and for fans of JRPGs. Which is why they have been waiting so eagerly for news on the title- happily, they may not have to wait much longer, as Atlus has confirmed that it will be sharing new information on the game on October 23.
At that point, we should hopefully get a new trailer, as well as the game’s final name (for all we know, it is a remake). We should also learn of its platforms, hopefully (while the game was announced for the Switch, it has never explicitly been confirmed as a Switch exclusive, meaning that at the very least a PS4 entry is not out of the question).
Hopefully it turns out to be a Shin Megami Tensei 5, one that is every bit as revelatory for the franchise as Nocturne was back in the day.
