The official Japanese website for Shin Megami Tensei V was mistakenly updated with new details for the upcoming and anticipated game. Most prominently, a Japanese release date of November 11, 2021. The title was set to have a global simultaneous release, but this cannot be confirmed from these leaks and is still liable to change.
This is most likely an error made due to various site updates being made in preparation for the E3 Nintendo direct on June 15. Thus any official announcement will likely occur then. Persona Central caught the release date before they were removed from the official site. The site details were as follows:
The latest mainline title in the Shin Megami Tensei series! Since Shin Megami Tensei‘s first release in 1992, the series has gained in popularity for its dark world view, anarchic scenarios, and original combat systems with demons and deities as allies.

The game will deliver a new demon experience like never before.
