First revealed back in January at the Switch’s announcement event, Shin Megami Tensei V has been officially confirmed for western localization.

Originally announced in October for Japan on the Switch, the latest mainline entry will be coming to the West as well. An English language trailer was released with the announcement. No details, like release date or price, have been announced. The only known details are that the setting is modern day Tokyo and that new demons will appear.

Shin Megami Tensei V marks the latest entry in the JRPG series. The last entries were Shin Megami Tensei IV, in 2013, and Shin Megami Tensei IV Apocalypse, in 2016. Both are set within the same world and were released on the 3DS.

Below is the English announcement trailer.

The Switch is starting to attract big name JRPGs since its launch back in March. Published by Nintendo, Xenoblade Chronicles 2 will release on December 1, while Square Enix’s Octopath Traveler is in the works.
