Orochi Bullies Jack Frost in New Shin Megami Tensei V Video

Shin Megami Tensei V Yamata no Orochi

Today’s Shin Megami Tensei V daily demon digest focuses on a creature from Japanese mythology and a familiar face for those who have played previous Atlus works–Yamata no Orochi. This large serpentine demon is, unsurprisingly, from the Snake race in this game. As a prominent character from Japanese mythos, Yamata no Orochi inspired various monsters and characters in other franchises as well.

In the video, Yamata no Orochi melts away a Jack Frost with a Salamander Strike, as well as two other Jack Frosts with Titanomachia. When Yamata no Orochi isn’t bullying Jack Frost in this Shin Megami Tensei V video, he’s begging for his life from the protagonist before he joins the party.
