Everything We Know About Shin Megami Tensei V: Vengeance

Atlus recently announced Shin Megami Tensei V: Vengeance, an updated re-release of Shin Megami Tensei V, and it's going beyond the Nintendo Switch for the first time! It will be released on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and PC on June 14 2024.

Vengeance’s biggest addition will be an entirely new and original scenario, taking place as an alternate version of the main game. Upon starting a new game, you’ll be given the option to choose either Canon of Creation (Shin Megami Tensei V’s classic story) or Canon of Vengeance, the additional scenario which takes an entirely new path in the second half of the game. Throughout this new campaign, you’ll meet a plethora of new characters, such as Yoko Hiromine, a high schooler at St. Marina Academy who possesses unique and mysterious powers. There is also Lilith, seemingly a prime antagonist for the Vengeance route; the leader of the Qadištu, a group of demons aiming to “restore the world to what it ought to be”, and seemingly the protagonist is key to this goal, calling him the “Key of Resurrection”.

Vengeance will also be released with two DLC scenarios: Holy Will and the Profane Dissent and Sakura Cinders of the East. These are both smaller scenarios taking place within the main story, which will unlock new allies. There will also be a small amount of additional DLC to make obtaining experience and currency easier. The DLC from Shin Megami Tensei V will also be added in with Vengeance

Switch owners of the original Shin Megami Tensei V will be able to carry over up to three demons to the compendium and also will receive other bonuses such as additional items. Along with this, there will be a few quality-of-life changes, such as an increased level cap, protagonist stat reallocation, and the ability to save everywhere.

Shin Megami Tensei V: Vengeance has a lot of unique changes and additions, which will make it more than worth your time. Taking both routes into account, there are roughly 160 hours of content, double the time of the original release.
