Xuan Wu, Who’s Also Known as Genbu and Gui Xian, Joins SMT V

SMT V Xuan wu Genbu

The next Shin Megami Tensei V demon’s trailer appeared, and it’s a character who goes by many names. Depending on the game, different monikers were used. In SMT V Xuan Wu, who people might also know as Genbu or Gui Xian, will be there.

In the SMT series, Gui Xian is often used as the character’s name. In the Persona series, the demon is called Genbu. Whatever name you want to use to refer to Xuan Wu by, in the trailer we see it in the wild and facing off against a Preta (also known as a Gaki).

At the end of the video Is a teaser for the July 5, 2021 demon of the day. It appears to be one of the Tengu, with the silhouette looking similar to Karasu Tengu.

There will be over 200 of these videos, once Atlus gets through with chronicling the whole array of characters in-game. In addition to Xuan Wu, aka Genbu, the following 17 potential allies will appear in SMT V
