  • As the first console game in a long time, Atlus wants to make a game that people can enjoy playing on their TV.
  • Atlus also considers a handheld system that can provide fun through demon fusion while laying down.
  • The current goal is to make a title made for both console and a handheld device.
  • Atlus wants to include a lot of demons, as well as make a game tailored to the system’s hardware specs.
  •  Shin Megami Tensei V will have three times the amount of effort put into the demons compared to previous titles.

Shin Megami Tensei V is in development right now as we speak. A release date has not been announced yet, but the game will be available exclusively for the Nintendo Switch.
