The official Youtube channel for Atlus Japan has shared the 65th Daily Demon video for the upcoming Shin Megami Tensei V. This entry highlights the white tiger present in Chinese folklore, Byakko. It is one of the 4 symbols of the Chinese Constellation, with its presence signifying peace throughout the land in one way or another.
Byakko wields Mazionga, having an affinity for electricity, while also dabbling in physical strikes with skills like Damascus Claw, an ability only having been seen in Shin Megami Tensei IV and Shin Megami Tensei IV Apocalypse.
You can view the Shin Megami Tensei V Daily Demon video introducing Byakko 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 this former home.
Shin Megami Tensei V is releasing for Nintendo Switch on November 12, 2021.
