Shin Megami Tensei V development fully underway

Three times the amount of effort being put into demons.

Shin Megami Tensei V

Develpoment on Shin Megami Tensei V is fully underway, producer Kazuyuki Yamai told 4Gamer.net in a recent interview.

Here are the notable tidbits:

  • The several core staff that the game started with early in its development is gradually increasing. While more and more people continue to sign on, Atlus has rounded up a considerable amount of staff, and it feels like we have reached a turning point where we can say the game is actually “in the making.”
  • As the first console game in a long time, Atlus wants to create grand content that people can thoroughly enjoy playing on their TV.
  • On the otherhand, Atlus also wants to include a carefreeness only a handheld system can provide, like enjoying demon fusion while laying down.
  • The goal is a title made for both a console and a handheld.
  • Atlus wants to include a lot of demons, as well as make a game suited to the hardware’s specifications.
  • Three times the amount of effort is being put into demons compared to previous titles.

Shin Megami Tensei V is in development for Switch. A release window has yet to be announced.
