November is here, and its the month of Shin Megami Tensei V. Soon the game will be available worldwide. Which means the SMT V demons get showcased. As usual, we’re looking at two returning characters. Both appeared in many mainline entries and spin-offs over the years. Time to meet the SMT V versions of Poltergeist and Koumokuten.
The SMT V Koumokuten video appeared first. He’s one of the 4 Heavenly Kings. In the past, he’s always been known as a physical attacker. Which carries over here, as he uses many melee attacks against opponents. However, he also uses Mazanma+4 against some Mokois.
After that, the SMT V Poltergeist video showed up. This little guy is a sort of ghost. It floats around the world, rattling and “whooping.” It also seems to have an affinity for electricity, as it can use Shockbound+2 to deal a handful of weak electrical attacks to a group of enemies.
Poltergeist is trailer number 189. Which means we’re nearing the end of these looks at SMT V demons. There will be one for all 214 characters. In the meantime, here are some SMT V videos that showed up before Koumokuten and Poltergeist.
- Moh Shuvuu
- Naga Raja
- King Frost
- Pyro Jack
Shin Megami Tensei V will come out on the Nintendo Switch on November 11 in Japan and November 12, 2021 worldwide.
