    What is Shin Megami Tensei V: Vengeance?
    Released in 2021, ATLUS’s renowned RPG Shin Megami Tensei V (SMTV) has sold more than 1 million copies worldwide.‚Äč This highly acclaimed title has evolved in every aspect, including the system and scenario, and will be available on multiple modern platforms! ‚Äč

    At the beginning of the story, the player is presented with two divergent paths. The story told in Shin Megami Tensei V, the Canon of Creation, and a brand-new route, Canon of Vengeance, a dramatic tale of revenge by the fallen.‚Äč

    The Canon of Vengeance follows the scenario of SMTV but changes drastically from the latter half of the game. The outcome will be completely different. Enjoy the two divergent stories to your heart’s content.‚Äč

    The battle system, demon fusion, and field exploration have also evolved in depth with the addition of new elements. We are excited to deliver a full-fledged RPG that can be enjoyed by those who have already played SMTV, as well as those who are playing this series for the first time.

    Story
    Thou shalt be God—-

    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 the apocalypse now called Da’at… but before bloodthirsty demons can claim his life, a savior emerges, and the two of them unite to become a mighty being, neither human nor demon: a Nahobino.

    FIELD
    Bethel’s Sacred Space РShakan

    In this work, the story takes place in the real Tokyo and another devastated Tokyo, Da’at.‚Äč

    ‚ÄčCanon of Vengeance will feature a new dungeon, “Shakan.” A sacred place and a forbidden land hidden in Shinjuku.‚Äč

    Shakan possesses a solemn atmosphere. ‚Äč

    The rotation devices and the angels that guard the sacred place stand in the way.

    SYSTEM
    World of Shadows
    In addition to combining demons in the world of paganism that one visits by accessing the leyline fount, the protagonist and his/her demons can be strengthened through the Apotheosis.

    Miracles
    Within¬†the Netherworld, one can obtain¬†Glory,¬†which represents the majesty of God.¬†In the World of Shadows you can learn¬†Miracles¬†by using Glory.¬†‚Äč

    Miracles are considered¬†miraculous deeds that alter the¬†world’s providence, and the types¬†of Miracles range from those that¬†give an advantage in¬†Netherworld¬†exploration and battles against¬†demons, to those that affect¬†conversation, fusion, skill¬†affinity, and growth.‚Äč

    Collect Glory, learn Miracles, and strengthen the protagonist.‚Äč

    Some Miracles can be turned on or off at will.

    (New Miracle) Support Skill: Estoma
    Numerous new Miracles have been added. One of the skills, Estoma, can be activated by triggering a Magatsuhi gauge. While it is activated, you are undetectable by all but a few demons on the field, and when you encounter a demon, the demon disappears, and combat will be avoided.‚Äč

    Essence Fusion
    When exploring Da’at, you may obtain an ‚ÄúEssence,‚ÄĚ a spirit that is a copy of a demon’s abilities. Essences exist for each demon and contain the demon’s skills and affinity resistances. By fusing it with the protagonist, you will be able to change the protagonist‚Äôs skills or affinity resistances.‚Äč

    Essences can also be fused with demons, and skills can be freely replaced, excluding unique skills. ‚Äč

    Subquest
    Demons and characters in the field requests help in ‚ÄúSubquests‚ÄĚ, which, if completed, will reward the user with various rewards.

    There are a wide variety of subquests, such as those where you “take control of a demon,” as well as “timed quests” which must be completed within a certain number of moon phases.

    In addition to events that occur in Da’at, subquests may also occur in real Tokyo.

    Subquest ‚Äď Return of the True Demon
    The DLC quests sold in Shin Megami Tensei V are included in this title as standard features, and one of them, “Return of the True Demon,” can be completed by fulfilling certain conditions. ÔľúChaosÔľě Demi-fiend can be added as your party member. ‚Äč

    A true challenge for the experienced adventurer, this quest will test your tactics and courage in a battle like no other!

    Virtual Trainer
    Located with the Diet Building is the Virtual Trainer, which allows you to challenge past foes in either a single fight or a series of continuous battles.‚Äč

    In the battle format, players can choose between the “Original Mode” which faithfully reproduces the strength of the enemy, and the ‚ÄúChallenge Mode” in which the enemy has been greatly enhanced compared to the original mode.‚Äč

    In the “Challenge Mode,” each time the game is cleared, the level of enemies to be rematched increases by 100. The battle with the virtual trainer will still result in a game over if you lose, so be sure to prepare carefully before taking on the challenge.

    Level Limit Breaking
    By fulfilling certain conditions, a new Miracle [Moral Transcendence] can be acquired.

    Once learned, the maximum level of Nahobino and his demons can be increased to 150, so create the strongest party of your own to your heart’s content.
