Shin Megami Tensei V Daily Demon Video #167 Showcases Treacherous Child Devourers, Mokoi

The official Youtube channel for Atlus Japan has shared the 167th Daily Demon video for the upcoming Shin Megami Tensei V. This entry highlights Mokoi, spirits from Australian mythology who devour the children of women they willingly mate with. As if that wasn’t horrid enough, they have an affinity for engaging in needless conflict against any humans in their path.

Mokoi wields Pulinpa and Zio, making it a starting demon that can help players get a leg up when grasping status ailments and the basics of elemental weaknesses. It debuted in Devil Summoner: Soul Hackers, while its first Persona game appearance was in Persona 4.

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