The Canon of Creation route follows the same story told in the original SMT V. Meanwhile, the Canon of Vengeance route is the new story being added to Shin Megami Tensei V: Vengeance. Both routes follow roughly the same story up until the middle stages of the plot, at which point Canon of Vengeance will offer significant changes.

Some new additions unique to Canon of Vengeance include 4 new female demons named the Qadištu, the Goddesses of Vengeance. Lilith is the leader of the group, and she seems to have her own agenda set for the Nahobino. Yoko Hiromine is a new character that meets the Nahobino and joins him in his travels while wandering Da’at.

SMT V and SMT V: Vengeance Director Shigeo Komori said that Vengeance was developed as a response to all the ideas the developers couldn’t include in the original game. The new storyline of Vengeance will explore the relationship between the Snake God (Qadištu) and the Bull God (Nahobino,) as well as the relationship between those who win and those who are defeated. While SMT V was a story about the Bull God creating a new world, the Canon of Vengeance is structured from the perspective of the Snake God as a tale of revenge by the oppressed.

Shin Megami Tensei V: Vengeance will come to the Nintendo Switch, PS5, PS4, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and PC on June 21, 2024. The original game is immediately available on the Nintendo Switch worldwide.
