The official Youtube channel for Atlus Japan has shared the 91st Daily Demon video for the upcoming Shin Megami Tensei V. This entry highlights Lamia, a Libyan queen in Greek mythology who fell in love with Zeus and gave birth to some of his children. Unfortunately, Hera grew enraged after learning of this affair and killed each of Lamia’s recently born kids, resulting in Lamia being driven mad with grief to the point of devouring children.
Lamia wields Zionga, Life Drain, Marin Karin, and Makajam, making her skillset reliant on inflicting status ailments with a touch of magical damage. She is in numerous Shin Megami Tensei and Persona titles and is iconic to a degree.
You can view the Shin Megami Tensei V Daily Demon video introducing Lamia 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.
