The official Youtube channel for Atlus Japan has shared the 76th Daily Demon video for the upcoming Shin Megami Tensei V. This entry highlights Agathion, who is simply a familiar spirit appearing as either an animal, human, or both in the middle of the day contained within a ring, talisman, or bottle like how he is depicted in Atlus titles.
Agathion wields Sukunda and Zio, making it an early magic-centric demon. Interestingly, this demon has made far more consistent appearances in Shin Megami Tensei than as a Persona.
You can view the Shin Megami Tensei V Daily Demon video introducing Agathion 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.
