Atlus has released the latest daily demon video for Shin Megami Tensei V. The latest highlighted demon is Obariyon, check out the video and some additional lore details below the break.

Here is some of the real world history behind the demon Obariyon, courtesy of the Megami Tensei Wiki:

The Obariyon is a Japanese “piggyback demon” from local folklore. While a person is walking along a woodland or grassy path, the Obariyon may jump out and attach itself to their back. While it cannot be seen, its weight can be felt by the person, and it becomes harder to walk. The Obariyon cannot be easily removed without the use of magic, but it is said if you can remove it and take it home, it will turn into many valuable gold coins.

Atlus has been showcasing demons coming to Shin Megami Tensei V every day for several months with these daily demon videos.
