A new Shin Megami Tensei demon is here! After quite a few SMT V videos showing off returning characters, the one for September 6, 2021 introduced the werewolf Loup-Garou.
The SMT V video for Loup-Garou follows a different format from some of the past trailers. Rather than showing the werewolf life character in the wild, it begins with a conversation with the Nahobino. When the battle segment starts, Loup-Garou is already in the midst of using an electrical attack where it breathes lightning at a Mermaid. Things close out with a negotiation where the Nahobino has to sacrifice a lot of his health to appease and potentially recruit the demon.
The teaser at the end of the Loup-Garou SMT V video includes a very distinctive silhouette. It is a person wrapped in bandages. Some of their limbs are even detached. This appears to be Attis, who’s shown up in Shin Megami Tensei and Persona games before.
The rollout of demon digest videos continues. Atlus will eventually share 214 of them. At the moment, we’re now at 82. Here are the 20 that appeared before it.
- Byakko/Bai Hu
- Bugs a.k.a. Bugbear
Shin Megami Tensei V will come to the Nintendo Switch in Japan on November 11, 2021 and worldwide on November 12, 2021.
