System

Da’at

The main character will navigate an alternate, post-apocalyptic Tokyo called Da’at. Da’at is vast, and changes its appearance based on the area. The enemies and challenges will vary similarly.

Cadaver’s Hollow

Through leylines around Da’at, players can save their game and access the Cadaver’s Hollow, where Gustave (voiced byYusaku Yara) awaits to buy and sell items.

Find Miman

Gustave’s minions are called “miman,” and they are scattered throughout Da’at. By finding a certain number of them, you will obtain various rewards.

Vending Machines and Relics

Relics can be obtained from vending machines found throughout Da’at. If you bring them to Gustave, they will be converted into Macca.

Magatsuhi

By collecting Magatsuhi in Da’at, players can receive various benefits. Green restores HP, yellow restores MP, and red increases the Magatsuhi gauge used in battle.

Demon Stone Statue

The player will sometimes come across huge petrified demon statues. It seems that they are remnants of a giant battle that took place a dozen years ago. Touching it raises the level of your demons.

Otama

A special demon that rarely appears. If you defeat it, it will drop items that can be used for cash and experience.

Abscesses

Occasionally, the player will come across large red obstacles. These are called Abscesses, and powerful enemies appear near them, attacking the protagonist. Defeating an Abscess not only removes it as an obstacle impeding exploration, but also givex the player Glory, which they can use to obtain powerful “Miracle” skills.

Quest Navigator

While exploring Da’at, you will meet a demon called Amanozako, who will start helping you. Amanozako becomes a “Quest Navigator,” supporting the exploration of Da’at by discovering and announcing items on the map. It seems demons other than Amanozako will also fulfill the role of quest navigation.

Quests

While exploring Da’at, you will occasionally receive requests and suggestions from other demons. The contents of the requests are plentiful, such as delivering items or subjugating other demons. If you complete a request, you will receive items, Macca, experience points, etc. that are useful for the adventure.

Difficulty

In this game, you can select three difficulty levelsL Casual, Normal, and Hard. All of the difficulty levels can be changed to “Hard,” however once “Hard,” the difficulty level cannot be reverted. Additionally, the free DLC with an easier difficulty level “Safety” will be released with the game’s release date.

More DLC information will be released in a follow-up report.

Shin Megami Tensei V will be released exclusively for the Nintendo Switch on November 11, 2021 in Japan and November 12, 2021 worldwide.
