At the recent Nintendo Direct Mini stream, Nintendo unveiled a couple of new games that will release in the future on the Switch. The two biggest games announced though are Shin Megami Tensei V and Shin Megami Tensei III: Nocturne.

Shin Megami Tensei V is the long-awaited fifth mainline installment in the SMT series. While the game has been confirmed to be on the works all the way back in 2017, this is the first time that we’ll actually see footage from the game.

Not familiar with the Shin Megami Tensei series? This JRPG franchise is the dates back to the 80s, and the titles in the series feature darker, post-apocalyptic settings and imagery, especially compared to the likes of the Final Fantasy and Dragon Quest series. While Shin Megami Tensei is a long-running franchise, its spin-off series Persona is now arguably even more popular than the SMT titles.

Shin Megami Tensei V will get a simultaneous worldwide release on the Switch in 2021, meaning the game’s Japanese and English versions will release on the same day. Meanwhile, Shin Megami Tensei III: Nocturne HD remaster will release on the Switch and the PS4 in Spring 2021.
