The official Youtube channel for Atlus Japan has shared the 146th Daily Demon video for the upcoming Shin Megami Tensei V. This entry highlights Barong, a general protector and guardian of humanity who uses magic to accomplish its deeds. It used to be a feral, wild beast, but it eventually became a reliable, beloved protector thanks to the efficacy of various rituals and hopeful ceremonies. Additionally, Barong is iconically known for being Rangda’s eternal opponent.
Barong wields Maziodyne, Damascus Claw, Tetrakarn, Marakukaja, making it a physical-centric demon with an affinity for the element of lightning. It debuted in the original Megami Tensei, and its first Persona game appearance was in Persona 3.
You can view the Shin Megami Tensei V Daily Demon video introducing Barong 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.
