The Shin Megami Tensei series has been on the rise since the Persona series started becoming more and more popular in the West. The previous main entry in the series, Shin Megami Tensei IV, only managed to sell around 600,000 copies worldwide in two years, so there is no denying that the series as a whole has become more popular in recent times.
Shin Megami Tensei V is now available on Nintendo Switch worldwide. You can learn more about one of the best Japanese role-playing games released last year by checking out my review.
Featuring a new approach to exploration and extremely solid gameplay, Shin Megami Tensei V masterfully balances innovation and tradition to offer an excellent JRPG experience. While the technical issues can get in the way, the game’s quality is so high that most will be willing to look past them, as the game is one of the best entries in the series and one of the best JRPGs released in 2021.
