Shin Megami Tensei 5 is set in modern-day Japan, and players will have to face down a variety of demons that are tearing the country to pieces. It is a brand new, full-fledged sequel exclusive to the Nintendo Switch.

She added that the story was "factually wrong" and that it was an attempt to "please the I&B ministry and the Bots Janata Party". Divya Spandana, who heads the Congress's social media and digital communications wing, scoffed at the allegations.

Back in January's Nintendo Switch reveal we got our first glimpse of a Shin Megami Tensei game for the system, developed by Atlus with Unreal Engine 4. And now, over ten months later, we know what that project will be. At the beginning of this year, Atlus launched a 25th-anniversary event for the Shin Megami Tensei series with a logo that hinted heavily at a new major installment. In the tunnels around Tokyo lie the corpses of devils that died in the city, and the trailer closes when high school students are surrounded, and presumably killed, by devils that still threaten the city's inhabitants. That should bode well for Shin Megami Tensei V's release hopes in the West, though no formal announcement has been made yet. Finally, the show began with a few minutes of looking back on past SMT games, culminating in a grand, epic, one-minute trailer for Shin Megami Tensei V. Though it's a possibility that Atlus has shifted its focus to the Switch as far as its Nintendo releases are concerned, there is still a market for the 3DS, so there's still a slight chance it will appear on that platform as well.
