If the daily trailers weren’t enough for you, today Atlus released a sizable gallery of screenshots of its upcoming JRPG Shin Megami Tensei V.

We take another look at Shohei Yakumo, Joka (her name is changed to “Nuwa” in English), and Abdiel, on top of a few more demons and Sophia.

On top of that, we also get to see more about negotiation with demons and combinations.

We then learn about the “Essences,” a feature that lets you find spirits containing a copy of a demon’s abilities and elemental affinity. You can use them to change the abilities or elemental affinity of the hero or a demon ally.

While exploring Da’at you can also obtain “Glory,” which is a stat that represents the majesty of the gods. You can spend it to acquire Miracles that can alter the order of the world. There are many different kinds and they may give you an advantage in exploration, battle, demon negotiation, combination, skill learning, or progression.

Shin Megami Tensei V releases for Nintendo Switch on Nov. 12, 2021. If you’re unfamiliar with it, you can enjoy and a brief official description below, hinting at the story.

“When a grisly murder scene in modern-day Tokyo blocks our protagonist’s walk home, an unplanned detour leaves him buried and unconscious.

He awakens in a new Tokyo, a wasteland ravaged by apocalypse now called Da’at… but before bloodthirsty demons can claim his life, a savior emerges, and they unite to become a mighty being neither human nor demon: a Nahobino.

With newfound power, the protagonist ventures through Da’at, an enigmatic realm filled with mythical deities and demonic tyrants in constant conflict for survival. Searching for answers, the protagonist must forge his own path in a battle between light and dark to dictate the fate of the world. ”
