Atlus confirms Shin Megami Tensei 5 is coming to Switch in the west

The devil rides out.

Publisher Atlus has confirmed that Shin Megami Tensei 5, which was recently announced for release on Nintendo Switch in Japan, will be making its way to the west - and there's a freshly localised trailer to celebrate the news.

Shin Megami Tensei 5 is the latest mainline entry in Atlus' dark, demon-infused J-RPG series, and at the time of its Japanese reveal last month, the publisher had no word to share on a localised western release. Now though, series fans can rest a little easier.

That really is almost everything that Atlus has revealed about the game so far, however. Even the Shin Megami Tensei 5 teaser trailer doesn't offer much that series fans couldn't already surmise: it's set in present day (and, before the trailer's out, slightly apocalyptic) Toyko, and it features its fair share of demons. The newly translated text, however, does offer this:

"All the fountains of the great deep broke up and the windows of heaven were opened. In this lightless age of corruption, we long for the dawn of a new messiah". Ominous, eh?

Hopefully more substantial news on Shin Megami Tensei 5 will begin to circulate soon.
