The newest two Shin Megami Tensei V daily demon digest videos on Atlus’s YouTube channel takes a look at Asian mythology. Mithra and Koppa Tengu have been confirmed to appear in SMT V. Though the two are from Asian religion and legends, Koppa Tengu hails from Japan whereas Mithra has roots in countries like Persia.
Mithra marks the 100th video for the series, which means that we are just under half of the demons that Atlus will show off for SMT V. In the video, Mithra uses a Hamaon spell to defeat a Succubus, before using Mamudoon on a group of Throne enemies. Aside from dark and light spells, Mithra can also use non-elemental magic, as shown with Megidolaon. These are all skills that Mithra has displayed in past iterations.
Koppa Tengu’s video starts off a little differently. He complains to the Nahobino about how he is a Koppa Tengu and that the older Karasu Tengu demons bully him. It seems that he’s anxious about whether or not he can ever become a Kurama Tengu at the rate he’s going. Indeed, as opposed to more powerful spells, Koppa Tengu only shows off Sukukaja and Zanma. Whether he can become anything more than a lowly Koppa Tengu is up to you.
Before, Atlus showed off a demon a day (thus “daily demon digest”) but to pick up the pace as the SMT V launch date draws ever nearer, it uploads two videos a day. Here are the 20 SMT V videos that appeared before Mithra and Koppa Tengu:
- Ame no Uzume
- Hua Po
Shin Megami Tensei V will come out on the Nintendo Switch in Japan on November 11, 2021, and worldwide on November 12.
