The official Youtube channel for Atlus Japan has shared the 123rd Daily Demon video for the upcoming Shin Megami Tensei V. This entry highlights Suzaku, a bird who represents one of the 4 symbols of Chinese constellations. In addition to it obviously housing the fire element, given its red coloration, its personality is described as elegant with noble tendencies such as being rather selective with what it consumes.
Suzaku wields Agilao and Matarunda, giving it debuff capabilities on top of its affinity for fire. It debuted in Shin Megami Tensei II, while its first Persona appearance was in Persona 2: Innocent Sin.
You can view the Shin Megami Tensei V Daily Demon video introducing Suzaku below:
Shin Megami Tensei V takes place after a murder occurs in modern-day Tokyo that blocks the game’s protagonist from walking home. The detour may have been due to fate or another force, but he finds himself buried and unconscious.
When he awakens, he finds himself in a new Tokyo, a wasteland after the apocalypse known as Da’at. He quickly finds out that he’s not alone, as demons are closing in on his location. However, a mighty being known as a Nahobino appears and saves him. With this power, the protagonist can venture through Da’at and hopefully get some answers about what happened to his former home.
Shin Megami Tensei V is releasing for Nintendo Switch on November 12, 2021.
