Atlus will release seven pieces of DLC for Shin Megami Tensei V at launch. You will have to buy the seven separately. Additionally, a new difficulty setting, Safety mode, will appear in stores as a free download. [Thanks, Famitsu!]
To start, there are four pieces of mission-based DLC for SMT V. Completing these missions will allow players to recruit exclusive demons. Return of the True Demon will allow the Nahobino to fight against the Demi-Fiend from SMT III: Nocturne. You will also get the chance to recruit nine demons, such as Trumpeter and Mother Harlot. A Goddess in Training will unlock Artemis, whereas The Rage of a Queen gives access to Cleopatra. Lastly, The Doctor’s Last Wish offers Mephisto after clearing the story mission.
Aside from mission DLCs that offer new demons and sub-quests, Shin Megami Tensei V will also have DLC that will ease the burden of grinding. Both Mitama Dance of Wealth and Mitama Dance of EXP will increase the spawn rates of rare demons. Mitama Dance of Wealth makes getting macca easier by defeating said demons, whereas Mitama Dance of EXP lets you gain more experience after these fights. And finally, Mitama Dance of Miracles increases the spawn rates of demons that will earn the protagonist more Glory.
