About Shin Megami Tensei V
When a gruesome murder scene stops our protagonist’s way home in modern-day Tokyo, an unanticipated detour burys him and renders him unconscious.
He wakes in a new Tokyo, a wasteland destroyed by the catastrophe now known as Da’at… but before the bloodthirsty demons can take his life, a rescuer appears, and the two join forces to become a tremendous entity neither human nor demon: a Nahobino.
The protagonist, armed with unexpected power, travels through Da’at, an intriguing region populated by mythological deities and demonic rulers who are always at odds for existence.
In search of answers, the protagonist must build his own path in a war between light and darkness to determine the world’s destiny.
