Shin Megami Tensei V is among the best role-playing games released this year. While the combat formula hasn't seen dramatic change, the new approach to exploration makes the game feel unlike any other previous entry in the series, as I highlighted in my review.
Featuring a new approach to exploration and extremely solid gameplay, Shin Megami Tensei V masterfully balances innovation and tradition to offer an excellent JRPG experience. While the technical issues can get in the way, the game's quality is so high that most will be willing to look past them, as Shin Megami Tensei V is one of the best entries in the series and one of the best JRPGs released in 2021.
Shin Megami Tensei V is now available on Nintendo Switch worldwide.
When a grisly murder scene in modern-day Tokyo blocks our protagonist's walk home, an unplanned detour leaves him buried and unconscious.
He awakens in a new Tokyo, a wasteland ravaged by apocalypse now called Da’at... but before bloodthirsty demons can claim his life, a savior emerges, and they unite to become a mighty being neither human nor demon: a Nahobino.
With newfound power, the protagonist ventures through Da’at, an enigmatic realm filled with mythical deities and demonic tyrants in constant conflict for survival.
Searching for answers, the protagonist must forge his own path in a battle between light and dark to dictate the fate of the world.
