Shin Megami Tensei V is Going Multi-Platform – Report

After a couple of years of being a Nintendo Switch exclusive, Atlus will reportedly bring the award-winning RPG Shin Megami Tensei V to multiple platforms this year. The news will apparently be unveiled at the upcoming Shin Megami Tensei 30th anniversary event which will take place from 5-6 May. It will also arrive on Xbox Game Pass.

The rumour originates from a user named Sn0w1n. While they aren’t a renowned leaker, they seemingly collect information from other leakers. Normally we’d recommend taking this with a mountain of salt or wouldn’t even write about it but this announcement may actually be within the realm of possibility. The Shin Megami Tensei franchise has a long history of multi-platform releases so it makes sense that Atlus wouldn’t want the fifth game locked to one platform forever.

One simply needs to look at the Persona series and how it never really stayed exclusive to one platform despite some timed exclusivity agreements. That’s not to say that Shin Megami Tensei V is guaranteed for a multi-platform announcement but it is a possibility, especially considering that Microsoft already paid Atlus a good penny to get the Persona games on Xbox Game Pass.

Shin Megami Tensei V originally launched on the Nintendo Switch in November 2021 to critical success. It went on to be nominated for Best RPG at The Game Awards that year and win several other awards across the industry. The series is known for spawning the spin-off Persona franchise which has arguably become more popular than its originator thanks to the mainstream success of Persona 5.

Since the source of this rumour isn’t the most trustworthy, we still recommend exercising some caution when approaching this news. We’ll just have to wait for May and find out if it all turns out to be true.
