Shin Megami Tensei

Atlus announced a new Shin Megami Tensei game for Switch many months ago. It’s been in the shadows since then, but the company will finally have something concrete to say next week.

As was previously known, the project is resurfacing on October 23. Atlus confirmed today that news will be delivered in a live stream. The presentation will air on October 23 at 5 AM PT / 8 AM ET / 1 PM in the UK / 2 PM in Europe. We have the relevant stream below.

At the end of the Atlus New Title Announcement Special Spring 2017 live stream, the same Shin Megami Tensei trailer from January was shown. However, one extremely brief scene was added with the image above.

Atlus didn’t have anything new to say about the Shin Megami Tensei Switch project otherwise. Since development is still fairly on, don’t expect to see it until 2018 (in Japan) at the earliest.

The Shin Megami Tensei series is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year, and to start off, Atlus has launched a special website for this occasion. At the moment, there’s pretty much nothing of interest to see on the website – except the logo above, which incorporates the release years of all four mainline Shin Megami Tensei games, alongside the word “next”. This seems to hint at Shin Megami Tensei V being released this year, or at the very least being announced.

Of course, we don’t know yet if this game (or any other potential games planned for this anniversary) will be on Nintendo platforms, but we will keep you updated if that’ll end up being the case.

At the dawn of the new year in 2013, Nintendo fans looked forward to another Nintendo Direct, giving us tons of announcements and games to anticipate in the coming months, as well as future development projects. One of the mystery titles revealed shocked many enthusiasts of the RPG genre. Of course, that was the surprise crossover between Shin Megami Tensei and Fire Emblem – two very different franchises at heart, but ones that share a connection with their deep character development, in-depth gameplay, and memorable experiences. All we had at the time was some character art shown between the long running entries of both series, but other than that and a confirmation of Shin Megami Tensei x Fire Emblem in the works, fans were left in the dark for well over a year afterwards. By that point, most assumed the game had been cancelled. Now in 2016, not only is the crossover nearly here, but Shin Megami Tensei mixing with Fire Emblem is a match made in heaven.

Nintendo has just released a brand new trailer just in time for the release of Genei Ibun Roku #FE in just a few weeks in Japan. The new trailer for the Shin Megami Tensei and Fire Emblem crossover shows off some brand new gameplay and cutscenes. Some of the stuff we’ve seen before, with new footage being thrown into the mix as well.
