Shin Megami Tensei V has been a long time coming. The last mainline entry in the series was released over eight years ago for the 3DS, while the last trang chủ console entry was another ten years before that. Moreover, Shin Megami Tensei V was one of the first games ever revealed for the Switch, mere months after the console itself was first shown lớn the public. All those years of hype have thus generated some awfully high expectations. It was never in doubt that Atlus would give this release the attention it deserves, but the question has always been whether it would be good enough to lớn get over the high bar set by its predecessors. Fortunately, any such concerns can be cast aside — Shin Megami Tensei V is the best entry in the series yet và stands as an impressive achievement for a beloved franchise.

Right from the off, it’s made abundantly clear that Shin Megami Tensei V is every bit as ‘heavy’ as its predecessors. Things start off seemingly normal as you follow your character through a typical day of school, but there’s an ominous tone to lớn the announcement at the kết thúc of the day that advises students khổng lồ travel trang chủ in pairs. People have been disappearing and there are rumors of violent attacks taking place around Tokyo, but nobody really seems khổng lồ have a clear idea of what exactly is going on.

Then, in practically the blink of an eye, Tokyo is gone.

In its place, your character finds himself trapped in a sand-swept hellscape littered with the crumbling ruins of skyscrapers & streets. Strange demonic and angelic creatures roam these wastes & there’s scarcely another human lớn be found. The world has already ended and you are alone, although this changes quickly when you meet an entity named Aogami, who fuses with you & turns you into a being called Nahobino. Invigorated with this newfound power, you thus begin a lengthy journey khổng lồ both uncover what exactly happened to the world và to fight a whole lot of angels & demons along the way.


The story is something that really needs to lớn be experienced to be understood, and we won’t rob you of the fun by spoiling anything further here, but suffice to say Shin Megami Tensei V tells quite a compelling tale. This is a story that is still very much marked by the weighty philosophical và moral ruminations that defined past entries, but Atlus has smartly decided lớn make this a more character-driven narrative than many previous games.

For example, the main shopkeeper in the game is a memorable, green-skinned ghoul named Gustave. Gustave is a friendly fellow. He seems lượt thích he genuinely wants khổng lồ help you on your quest. But he also comes off as the kind of guy who likes to microwave butterflies in his spare time, & there’s something equal parts haunting and endearing in his maniacal giggles as you sell him another few bottles of soda.


Make no mistake, this is hardly a lighthearted tale, but wandering the wasteland in isolation feels purposeful now that you’re given more concrete reasons khổng lồ have emotional investment in the narrative. You have clearer goals and objectives for driving the plot forward, và the characters you encounter are more interesting than the mostly one-dimensional idealogues that populated past entries. The narrative is certainly not as straightforward và relatable as, say, Persona 5 or Xenoblade Chronicles 2, but we’d still contend that Atlus has crafted a nicely balanced story with this entry. The world of Shin Megami Tensei V is just interesting in a way that the previous entries weren’t, và it’s a credit to lớn the writers that they were able to lớn pull this off without losing that darker edge that the series is known for.

Shin Megami Tensei V is a true dungeon crawler at heart, and it’s been designed in a way that’s ‘semi-linear’. Each of the maps you can explore are ultimately laid out in a simple-to-follow fashion that’s nearly impossible khổng lồ get lost in, but there are also many side paths & areas that reward exploration và offer up some compelling side content. There’s never a question of where you need to lớn go or what you need to vì chưng next, but the path you take lớn get there and the things you do along the way are still very much up khổng lồ you. Exploration is also assisted in part by little Magatsuhi energy balls dotted throughout the landscape like breadcrumbs. You automatically pick these up as you run over them, & they’ll đứng đầu up things lượt thích your health, MP, and Magatsuhi gauge while their positioning often encourages you to lớn step off the beaten path.

Once you start poking around the world a little more, you’ll find that there’s often quite a bit to help you build up your characters better. There are, of course, the expected treasure chests that offer up nice rewards, but the main draw lớn exploration is usually side quests & little creatures called Miman. The side quests are usually offered up by friendly demons và give you the expected tasks of going on fetch quests or fighting powerful foes, & while they usually don’t have a ton of depth, they địa chỉ some welcome texture to lớn the otherwise lifeless environment and often act as the only way khổng lồ unlock more Magatsuhi skills.


Additionally, there are 200 Miman khổng lồ find throughout the whole game, và these are all connected khổng lồ an ongoing side quest for Gustave. Each Miman gives you a little bit of Glory (more on that in a bit), while hitting certain milestones with how many of them you collect will lead to Gustave giving you some special gifts. Suffice to lớn say, there is a lot to do in the world of Shin Megami Tensei V & you’re constantly doing something that either progresses the main story or somehow builds up your character or their party.

Another important factor that greatly aids the accessibility of this new world thiết kế is the Leyline Fount system. Dotted around the world are xanh portals that act as one-stop shops for everything you could possibly need for your adventure. You can use these portals to lớn quickly fast travel around the world, save, heal your party, siêu thị for extra goods, and engage in any demon-summoning or fusion shenanigans. Given that combat (at least on normal difficulty) is as savage and difficult as it was in past entries, these founts act as a nice balancing factor lớn make the journey feel that much more bearable. You’ll still likely wipe more often than you intend to, but it feels lượt thích the game "earns" those deaths now that you are frequently given reasonable access khổng lồ every tool you could need lớn succeed.


Combat follows the same Press Turn rules of previous entries, making for what feels lượt thích the best take on straight turn-based combat. You can have an active các buổi tiệc nhỏ of the Nahobino and up khổng lồ three other demons, & each party member is given one kích hoạt per turn. However, if you manage lớn connect attacks that crit or hit an enemy’s elemental weakness, you can get up khổng lồ four additional actions for yourself. Smartly using this system in your favor means that you can effectively clear average enemy encounters in one turn if you’re tactical, but the flipside is that you lose turns if an attack misses or gets blocked by an enemy. Additionally, everyone in your tiệc ngọt has elemental weaknesses of their own, & enemies can gain extra actions if they hit these.

Thus, this Press Turn system is very high-risk, high-reward. If you get the first turn on the enemy & planned your team well, battles can typically be wrapped with scarcely any effort. Yet if the enemy gets the jump on you and you’re just beginning khổng lồ explore a new area, it’s not uncommon for a few party members to get completely wiped before you even have a chance to vì anything. The only real downside with this system is that it can become a little repetitive once you’ve ‘solved’ an enemy encounter. By this, we mean that if, say, an area is littered with Cait Siths & you’ve already discovered how to lớn best leverage your current team lớn defeat one, all subsequent encounters mostly become you using the exact same moves in the exact same order to lớn maximize your turn count. Luckily, there’s quite a bit of enemy variety & you usually come across new ones just as you’re beginning khổng lồ get bored of the current crop, but this repetition does crop up if you spend a little too long in any given area.


New lớn Shin Megami Tensei V is an additional feature called the Magatsuhi Gauge that works as a nice means of fudging battles even more in your favor. This gauge fills up a little bit by doing specific actions or naturally with each passing turn, & once full it allows you to lớn unleash powerful skills to tip the scales. Every character and demon has different skills they can use, & these offer helpful buffs like ensuring every attack for that turn is critical or massively raising everyone’s evasion for a turn.

Best of all, casting a Magatsuhi skill doesn’t cost an kích hoạt and the caster can still act after they’ve used one. The Magatsuhi gauge feels like a welcome addition to lớn the tried-and-true combat system, as its not influential enough khổng lồ ‘break’ the game, but sometimes gives you that extra oomph you need to lớn decisively finish a fight.

Much lượt thích in previous games, you build your team by a combination of negotiating with demons to join your team, và fusing allied demons together to size more powerful varieties. Demon negotiation remains just as opaque và frustrating as ever, but here it feels lượt thích you generally succeed more often than you fail. Even so, we’ve had plenty of times where a demon fleeced us of some health và items, only to lớn laugh and run off with the goods. Still, negotiation gets a little easier as you unlock more skills that help to give you a better chance, and once a demon has been caught, it remains in your compendium forever.

Running back khổng lồ a Leyline Fount then allows you to create demon fusions by either fusing together tiệc ngọt members or paying a fee to temporarily summon former ones for fusion fodder. Naturally, this means that your fusion options are rather limited in the first few hours given that there’s only a few demon types to collect, but the table opens up exponentially as you địa chỉ more demons to lớn your compendium and create that many more potential combinations. It can be a little nerve-wracking when you’re making changes to lớn your team, as there are only so many skills you’re allowed to lớn carry over from the two ingredient demons, but the kết thúc result is usually something notably more powerful than either demon you’re losing. Sure, fusion in Shin Megami Tensei V may be basically the exact same system that’s been in previous entries for the past several years, but it’s a good example of Atlus choosing not to fix something that isn’t broken. Fusion remains a compelling và fascinating way of measuring progress, và it only becomes more interesting as the trò chơi goes on & you have more options to lớn choose from.

Borrowing somewhat from the last mainline numbered entry, Shin Megami Tensei V uses a new system called Apotheosis for guiding your Nahobino’s growth. For one thing, this is now the main way of giving him new skills, as he doesn’t learn them from demons anymore. Rather, you collect Essences from demons either through leveling them or getting them as rewards elsewhere, và each Essence acts as a small bundle of skills that you can pick from to showroom to his abilities. This feels lượt thích a welcome change, as it allows you a little more flexibility over actively changing up the Nahobino’s moveset without having khổng lồ worry about how you’ll later get back the skills you had lớn toss.


Additionally, you can now use a new currency called Glory that you collect from Miman or other sources on your adventure khổng lồ give the Nahobino new permanent passive skills. These skills touch on all areas of Shin Megami Tensei V & grant you things lượt thích better proficiency with different spell types to lớn lower costs for fusing from the demon compendium. These skills don’t come cheap, however, which really pushes you to prioritize what kind of build you want the Nahobino khổng lồ have. This Glory system doesn’t feel like it breaks the trò chơi too much, but it does offer up some lovely benefits và a thrilling sense of forward progress as you develop your character.

In terms of presentation, Shin Megami Tensei V is certainly the best-looking entry in the series yet, but it does come with some caveats. Seeing all these beloved demon designs in glorious HD is something to lớn behold, and the art style does a great job of giving them a certain ‘realistic’ look that they lacked in previous entries. Things lượt thích dynamic lighting và high-res textures are welcome additions, but they vị come at the cost of performance. Whether you’re playing on portable or docked, Shin Megami Tensei V always looks slightly blurrier than we’d lượt thích and asset pop-in is a common sight. The frame rate mostly seems khổng lồ stick lớn its 30FPS target, though there are some times when there are lots of demons in the field và it slips noticeably. It would be disingenuous khổng lồ say that Shin Megami Tensei V is disappointing with its performance, but it’s abundantly clear that this is a release that pushes the Switch khổng lồ its very limit.

We’d be remiss lớn close out this reviews without also mentioning the soundtrack, which is simply sublime. The music is mostly characterized by heavy synths, fast drumbeats, và metal guitar riffs, and it’s a mixture that feels equal parts intense và relaxing. At any rate, it sets a wonderful tone for the often oppressive atmosphere established by the rest of the game. There’s no soundtrack out there that sounds quite like Shin Megami Tensei, & we’re happy khổng lồ report that Shin Megami Tensei V continues this legacy of memorable music.

Conclusion


Shin Megami Tensei V is a modern masterpiece. It successfully delivers on all the aspects that have made the series thus far so popular with fans—namely through its high difficulty, heavy narrative themes, & expansive team-building options—while polishing up and tightening the weaker aspects. Things like a more easily navigable map and more difficulty options khổng lồ cater khổng lồ players of all skill levels comfortably make this the most approachable entry in the series, & it feels lượt thích there’s more things to do in the world than ever before. If you are at all a fan hâm mộ of RPGs or have been looking for a good entry point into this oft overlooked series, we would strongly encourage you lớn pick this up as soon as you can. Shin Megami Tensei V was worth the wait, Atlus has successfully stuck the landing with this one.

You know a company is confident in their trò chơi when review go online one week before release. Can"t wait


*

mariomaster96 I"ve never played a Shin Megami Tensei game before, but seeing it in all of the directs, it just looks so cool, I"ll definitely pick it up


Thu 4th Nov 2021

Should be a fun romp. Will carry me through the holidays.


Thu 4th Nov 2021

Removed - unconstructive


Thu 4th Nov 2021

YES YES YES! Can"t wait!


Thu 4th Nov 2021

will definitely get this at some point. Dark Souls remastered & the animal crossing dlc are getting me through for now


Thu 4th Nov 2021

Aside from my normal eye roll at this particular negative that this site is infamous for (performance doesn"t bother me on Switch for any trò chơi I play, that"s just how I feel) this sounds lượt thích a great game. Says a lot about Nintendo/Sega"s general feeling on this trò chơi now that reviews are live, with over a week until release. They apparently were right to lớn have that confidence.

Edit: perhaps it is a little childish khổng lồ care about someone who is bothered by something I"m not. So...meh. Still sounds like an amazing game but I"m avoiding reading/watching too much about it because I really want to lớn experience it all on my own.


Thu 4th Nov 2021

Honestly, I did not know this was coming out today LOL I know I"ve seen articles about the trò chơi recently but I guess my idiot eyes and dumb brain never connected the dots. Well this is exciting... Và it reviewed extremely well!! I"ll be buying it! I own all other entries on 3DS & love them. They"re very punishing & I"ve never beat one but dang I love them.

EDIT... I guess it"s not out today!? There goes my dumb eyes & idiot brain again! I assumed it was. Either way.. I"m buying it!

EDIT 2: I for whatever reason feel I need to put this out there.. I assumed the main character was female but I think it is so freaking cool they sort of come off as non-binary or maybe gender fluid. I know the character is referred khổng lồ as "he" but I never would"ve guessed.I watched the review clip and read it as well và I went from "I"ll buy it in the next 2 months" lớn "I"m preordering it." It looks lượt thích a well-refined version of all previous entires. Và seeing the demons in 3d is a huge jump for me. Thanks for the review, NL! I know what I"ll be playing this holiday!


Thu 4th Nov 2021

I hope its decent but that footage where you collect those MP spheres on the map has me extremely worried. I really hope that the dungeon crawling aspect is there và it"s not just about the boss battles lượt thích with 99% of JRPGs these days.


Thu 4th Nov 2021

Pre-ordering when i get paid tomorrow, very excited.


Thu 4th Nov 2021


Mauzuri poor summer child.


Thu 4th Nov 2021

DAMN! This đánh giá came out fast! Hoping for sucess for the game, in part so that we can get youknowwhat


Thu 4th Nov 2021

Juicy details a 9/10 sign me up!Also a day one update will fix that subpar performance.


Thu 4th Nov 2021

9/10 from NL makes it 7/10 for regular review. So all in all - a decent RPG, just nothing groundbreaking.

If someone never tried SMT series before then this entry is definitely should be their first one, as it"s polished enough & contains all the QoL improvements for an old SMT formula.


Thu 4th Nov 2021

Never played an SMT trò chơi before, but I loved Persona 4 và Persona 5. Definitely picking this up next week.


Thu 4th Nov 2021

Sounds alike game of the year material for me, that"s if it can knock tales of Arise from that position


Friendly It"s funny, people never seem to lớn realize that Persona is the spinoff series. Same with Metroid Prime, people are always surprised khổng lồ find out it"s a prequel và not the main series lol


Thu 4th Nov 2021

Very much looking forward khổng lồ this one. I grabbed SMT3 earlier this year on the Switch, but it wasn"t easy khổng lồ get into it.


Thu 4th Nov 2021

I really really cannot wait. But I’ve waited this long.

I’m trying khổng lồ stop myself from playing any SMT stuff ahead of release so I’m hungry for it when I finally get to lớn play this game.

I don’t think I’ve ever followed a release for such a long time, so I really have tried lớn keep my expectations in check, I can’t see myself being disappointed.


Thu 4th Nov 2021

Sorry, this read lượt thích a 10 review, but it’s only a 9 because of performance sometimes being subpar. Yet Metroid Dread gets a perfect 10. Something is fishy here.


anynamereally https://www.metacritic.com/publication/nintendo-life?filter=games

"On average, this publication grades 8.7 points lower than other critics. (0-100 point scale)"

So you are factually wrong.


Thu 4th Nov 2021

Cool, was basically on board with this anyway, even more so with good reviews.

As an aside though, and a genuine question so please don"t flame me, what has happened with Atlus this generation? What I mean is, on the 3DS I have tons of Atlus games but on the Switch there only seem to lớn be about three others (Catherine, Persona Strikers, SMT3) & they are all available on other systems. Are they not too interested in the Switch or has their recent output đầu ra been resource intensive? Seems khổng lồ me that loads of people, myself included, would love some more Etrian games and more of their quirky RPGs.

Oh, forgot, there"s also Mirage Sessions but that was pretty much complete last generation.....


Thu 4th Nov 2021

Like a few others in the comments ive also never played a SMT trò chơi before. This will be my first one as i will defenately be buying it.


Thu 4th Nov 2021


anynamereally So would it take a score of 11 or 12 lớn make a trò chơi above 8?


Thu 4th Nov 2021


CurtisABXY All I will say is prepare for something that is going khổng lồ be an entirely different flavor from what you"re used to.


Thu 4th Nov 2021

I can"t believe this trò chơi is actually coming out soon. After so many years of waiting it doesn"t feel real
