Key Areas

Shin Megami Tensei V New Features - 05


To ward off intruders, angelic sentries stand guard while magical contraptions invert the ceilings and floors.


Delve into the World of Shadows and enact Apotheosis


In addition to fusion, the World of Shadows also lets you use Apotheosis to strengthen the Nahobino and your allies. To get there, just stop by a leyline fount.


Learning Miracles


Shin Megami Tensei V New Features - 06


By using Glory, a currency found in Da’at that demonstrates the might of a god, the Nahobino can gain new Miracles. These abilities will aid you while exploring Da’at or battling enemies. They can even affect fusion, skill potentials, and leveling! Some can also be toggled on and off to suit your needs.


New Miracle – Estoma Field


Shin Megami Tensei V New Features - 07


This new technique allows you to produce a magical barrier by using up some of the Magatsuhi Gauge. While it is active, you will not be detected by enemies. If you end up encountering an enemy, you’ll be able to avoid a battle against them.


Essence Fusion


Shin Megami Tensei V New Features - 08


This type of fusion utilizes Essences: copied, astral forms of demons’ abilities which you find throughout Da’at. Essences exist for each demon, and when the protagonist or your demonic allies fuse with one of them, you’ll be able to change their affinity resistances and skills. Feel free to experiment with all kinds of skill combinations for your party!


Sub Quests


Shin Megami Tensei V New Features - 09


Take on sub quests from demons and human characters you encounter on your adventure. By clearing them, you’ll be able to receive various rewards. Keep an eye out for them not only in Da’at, but in Tokyo too! There’s a wide variety of sub quests to take on, including Moon Phase Sub quests that require you to finish specific tasks within a moon’s cycle as well as sub quests that allow you to play as demons!


Sub Quests – Return of the True Demon



Return of the True Demon, a DLC subquest from the original Shin Megami Tensei V, is included in the base game! Should you fulfill the right conditions, the Demi-fiend will accompany you as a guest character in your party. Prepare to push your skills to the limit in one of the game’s toughest quests!


Virtual Trainer



You’ll be able to make use of the virtual trainer via the Terminal Room in the Diet Building. The virtual trainer allows you to challenge past foes in either a single fight or a gauntlet of battles. You can face them at their original strength in Original Mode or take on even more powerful versions of them in Challenge Mode. Each time you complete Challenge Mode, the enemies’ levels will increase by 100.

Being defeated will still result in a game over, so it is recommended that you save before using the virtual trainer.


New Maximum Level



Fulfilling certain conditions will unlock Moral Transcendence, a new Miracle that allows you to raise the level cap of the Nahobino and his allies from 99 to 150!
