The official Youtube channel for Atlus Japan has shared the 89th Daily Demon video for the upcoming Shin Megami Tensei V. This entry highlights Nekomata, a yokai from Japanese folklore boasting supernatural abilities like human comprehension and other elements of well-honed intelligence. She has quite a plethora of fans, and I can’t really blame them.
Nekomata wields Sukukaja, Mazan, and Zanma, illustrating her affinity for wind and tendency to favor agility. She has appeared in almost every Shin Megami Tensei and Persona title imaginable, so if you’ve played any of those games, then you assuredly know of Nekomata.
You can view the Shin Megami Tensei V Daily Demon video introducing Nekomata 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.
