One of the new gameplay elements included in Shin Megami Tensei V: Vengeance is the addition of unique skills for each demon in the party. They will take a different slot from other skill, and the new skill will emphasize and differentiate the unique characteristics and playstyles of each demon, similar to the Persona Traits added in Persona 5 Royal.

The Nahobiho is a new Frost-type demon based on the appearance of the Nahobino. Nahobiho can use an Ice elemental version of the Wrath Tempest skill, exclusive to the Nahobino in the original SMTV. Nahobiho is one of the 40 new demons that will be added to the game. Players will also be able to interact with demons in their party.

Some of the quality-of-life changes being added to Shin Megami Tensei V: Vengeance include the following:

  • Under certain circumstances, players can increase the level cap of the Nahobino and demons from 99 to 150.
  • The speed at which players can distribute new demon skill has been changed, and now offers four alternatives: standard, double speed, max speed, or skip.
  • Some Miracles can be toggled ON or OFF from the status screen.
  • A new item will allow players to reset the Nahobino’s parameters and relocate his stats.
  • Players can toggle minimap rotation ON or OFF in the settings menu.
  • Saving can now be done anywhere in the map.
  • Growth items such as Gospels (EXP increase) and Incenses (stats increase,) can now be used in a batch.

Additionally, Atlus confirmed that The Return of the True Demon, The Doctor’s Last Wish, The Rage of a Queen, and A Goddess in Training DLCs are all included from the beginning as part of Shin Megami Tensei V: Vengeance. The Mitama DLC will remain paid content, and two new demons will be added as paid DLC. These are Dagda from SMT IV: Apocalypse, and the brand-new demon Konohana Sakuya.

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.
