Shin Megami Tensei V : Vengeance

Two games in one…technically

Vinces L

Shin Megami Tensei V: Vengeance is not a new game but a new storyline. Players can select the path they wish to follow at the beginning of the game. The “Canon of Creation,” which is the original storyline, or the new one, “Canon of Vengeance,” which, as the new title implies, is a new storyline created for this release. Both stories start the same; however, you’ll start experiencing what the new storyline has to offer during the second half of the game.

So, what’s new?

New Look

What particularly caught our attention is the protagonist's brand-new form! Which is only accessible if you choose the “Canon of Vengeance” storyline. The new form is certainly different from the usual blue looks we’ve recognized “Nahobino” in. The new form wields a sickle as a weapon instead of a sword; other than that, not much is known about this new form.

More Demons and New Mechanics

Shin Megami Tensei V: Vengeance promises to bring more demons than the original game, bringing the total to over 270 demons (the original had 221 demons), with both new and returning demons from the original game. There’s a cute little demon called Nahabeeho who strongly resembles the original form of the protagonist. The game also introduces new gameplay mechanics and skills; however, not much information has been revealed regarding this.

New Characters

The original supporting character from the series will also be here in the new storyline; however, it appears that they will join us in battle now instead of just being a supporting character. A new human character to be introduced to the series is Yoko Hiromine (CV: Chiwa Saito).

The Qadistu

Lilith (red hair) is back once more in the new game; however, she has a completely different design and now plays a larger role when compared to the old game. Lilith is the leader of the group Qadistu. Not much is known about what her purpose is except for her design.

Naamah (Yellow hair), also known as “Mother of Demons,” is said to be so beautiful that mortals, demons, and even angels fall for her charms.

Eisheth Zenunim (the scary one) in mythology is believed to eat souls, calling it salvation. He is also, in my opinion, the best design demon in terms of spooky level.

Agra bat Mahlat (Witch), the most “human"-looking one, is known as the Queen of Demons. People called her “the demon who dances on the roof,” as she is said to wander with a horde of messengers of destruction.

Last but not least, the servant (or pet), Glasya-Labolas
