SMT V Brings Back Turdak as a Demon

smt v turdak shin megami tensei

The next Shin Megami Tensei V demon to appear is a bit of a deep cut. It’s a returning character who’s appeared in the SMT series before. However, it’s also one that hasn’t appeared in a mainline game in a while. Turdak will show up in SMT V.

While some time passed since Turdak appeared in a numbered SMT game, the character did show up fairly recently worldwide. It appeared in both Persona Q Nintendo 3DS games.

Here’s the full SMT V Turdak trailer. It follows the usual pattern of showing a summoning, then showing it in the world. Once a battle begins, people can see it facing off against some Agathions in battle. Turdak uses a returning skill against it, Gram Slice+2. That’s a physical attack. Also, as usual, the video ends with a silhouette tease for the next demon.

The list of SMT V demons continues to grow, as we’ve now gotten into the double digit numbers since Feng Huang, Inugami, and Turdak showed up. Here’s the list of characters we’ve seen so far.

  1. Jack Frost
  2. Amanozako
  3. Fionn mac Cumhaill
  4. Angel
  5. Daimon
  6. Mermaid
  7. Mandrake
  8. Arioch
  9. Kumbhanda
  10. Feng Huang
  11. Inugami

Shin Megami Tensei V will come to the Nintendo Switch in Japan on November 11, 2021 and worldwide on November 12, 2021.
