Shin Megami Tensei V Daily Demon Video #160 Showcases the Heavenly Bird of Divine Intervention, Yatagarasu

The official Youtube channel for Atlus Japan has shared the 160th Daily Demon video for the upcoming Shin Megami Tensei V. This entry highlights Yatagarasu, a being of divinity sent by Amaterasu who interferes in human conflict. However, due to its potent heavenly status, unallowed parties who direct their attention to it are sapped of their sanity.

Yatagarasu wields Diarahan, Masakunda, and other spells, making it a supportive magic-centric demon. It debuted in Megami Tensei II, and its first Persona game appearance was in the original.

You can view the Shin Megami Tensei V Daily Demon video introducing Yatagarasu 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.
