Shin Megami Tensei V producer asks fans to wait a little while longer for news on the game

Shin Megami Tensei V was one of the first games officially announced for Nintendo Switch, yet we’ve heard very little about it since its reveal, presumably because the game was still in its very early development stages when it was announced. The last time we heard about the game was back in August, when the game’s producer, Kazuyuki Yamai, assured fans that Atlus was hard at work on the game and that news would be shared at a later date.
Well, that date is..not quite today. In this week’s issue of Famitsu magazine, several Atlus developers shared their plans and hopes for 2019. Among them was Kazuyuki Yamai, but he didn’t really have anything substantial to share about Shin Megami Tensei V. He says that the team is still steadily working on the game, and that he’s sorry that he can’t disclose the date of the next reveal. Working with Unreal Engine 4 and implementing various details in the game is taking some more time, and he would be happy if fans could wait a little while longer for news.
Shin Megami Tensei V producer: still working hard on the game, no compromises, news at a later date

Shin Megami Tensei V was announced all the way back at the Nintendo Switch reveal event in January 2017. Since then, we haven’t heard a whole lot about the game from Atlus. Today, the game’s producer, Kazuyuki Yamai, broke the silence at least a little bit in an interview. While he didn’t really provide any real new info, he said that “the team is still working hard” on the game, that “no compromises” would be made to make the game deserving of being a mainline Shin Megami Tensei title, and that more news would be shared at a later date when the time is right.
Perhaps we will we hear something concrete about SMT V at Tokyo Game Show next month. That would certainly be an appropriate venue.

Back in December, Shin Megami Tensei V producer Kazuyuki Yamai said that the game’s development was in a “scrap-and-build phase.” But in a new interview with 4Gamer, Yamai has indicated that full-scale development has now started.
4Gamer asked about the status of Shin Megami Tensei V in a recent interview. In response, Yamai stated (as translated by Persona Central):
Shin Megami Tensei V apparently still in the early stages of development, producer wants fans to be patient

Shin Megami Tensei V was first teased at the Switch reveal event back in January and was officially announced in October with a brief trailer. That trailer didn’t feature any gameplay footage – because, as it turns out, there really isn’t any gameplay that’s fit to be shown off yet. In the same group interview with various Japanese developers that also revealed Level-5’s Switch focus next year, Shin Megami Tensei series producer Kazuyuki Yamai touched on the game’s current state of development.
They are currently in the “scrap and build” phase, meaning that they are trying out various gameplay concepts to find out what works and what doesn’t on a trial-and-error basis. Yamai states that since this is the first mainline Shin Megami Tensei title on a home console in a while, he’d like to develop the game properly without any compromises. He would also like to properly reveal the game soon to show off how it plays, but asks fans to be patient for a while longer.
