SMT V World in Ruins Trailer Explains New Gameplay Mechanics

The new SMT V World in Ruins trailer showcases some new and returning gameplay mechanics. It also reveals that the netherworld of Da’at is actually a post-apocalyptic Tokyo infested with demons. The new trailer is currently viewable via the official Atlus YouTube channel.

Specifically, the trailer showcases how players can recruit demons through the demon negotiation mechanic. In the video, the protagonist initiates a conversation with a Muu Shuwuu out in the open. The demon then introduces itself and joins the party after a dialogue choice. Unlike the previous video where King Frost recruits Jack Frost, the protagonist talks with the demon directly.

In addition to the previously-announced return of Press Turn battles and new Magatsuhi Gauge mechanics, the trailer also reveals that the series staple Demon Fusions will make a return. One example is the Megami Idun, which appears after fusing three different characters.

Essence and Glory are also two new options for upgrading stats and affinities. Players can obtain Essence from demons and use it to upgrade ally skills, as well as change the affinity stats of the protagonist. On the other hand, players can find Glory scattered throughout the overworld and use it to learn special Miracle moves.
