Shin Megami Tensei V: Vengeance – New Gameplay Features Revealed

SEGA has released additional information about the new gameplay features appearing in  Shin Megami Tensei V: Vengeance, which is slated for release on June 21, 2024, for Nintendo Switch,  PlayStation® 4, PlayStation® 5, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, Steam, and Windows. 


  • Press Turn Combat 

The series’ simple but rewarding turn-based Press Turn Combat system is back, with new skills and  gameplay elements. Turn the tides of battle in your favor by targeting your enemy’s weaknesses to gain extra  actions before your enemies do! 

Some demons now have their own exclusive skills!

Magatsuhi Skills 

Your Magatsuhi Gauge fills up throughout the course of battle. Once the gauge is full, you’ll be able to trigger  special abilities known as Magatsuhi Skills. From dealing heavy damage to healing and buffing your party,  there are now over 50 Magatsuhi Skills to leverage, including more than 20 newly added abilities that are  exclusive to certain types of demons. What’s more, allies who share the same alignments will give you access  to even more abilities. 

  • Innate Skills 

All demons now possess innate skills, passive skills that give you an extra edge in battle. Some may power  up your attacks, strengthen certain demons, and even aid you when negotiating with demons! These innate  skills add an extra layer of strategy to the way you assemble your party.

Blessed Melody: Increases damage when striking a Light weakness for all allies.


Four Heavenly Kings: Raises all of your stats when a demon with Four Heavenly Kings is summoned.


Demonic Mediation: Patches up relations with a demon whose mood sours mid-negotiation.

Demon Conversations 

Strike up conversations with your opponents and turn them into your demonic allies! 

Each demon has unique speech patterns and preferences – Shin Megami Tensei V: Vengeance adds even more to create even livelier interactions. 

Skilled negotiators will be able to navigate their way through any conversation and find strong  allies. In some negotiations, there’s a chance that the demons in your party will join in. 

You’ll need to wait and see what happens in these special demon-to-demon conversations. Some demons might even test your knowledge with a quiz! 

  • Guest Characters 

As the story progresses, human characters may participate as allies in battle. These characters can fight like  demon allies, as well as use items. Make use of the different strengths human allies and demon allies provide

  • Consecutive Encounters 

After defeating an enemy, another demon may appear to continue the battle. This fight will become tougher  than usual, but winning will grant you additional Macca and EXP, as well as a higher likelihood of items  dropping. Consecutive encounters are more likely to occur when fighting in areas where many enemy  demons are gathered. Stay vigilant if you want to avoid them – or use this to your advantage.

About Shin Megami Tensei V: Vengeance 

With its release in 2021, ATLUS’ Shin Megami Tensei V sold over 1 million copies and achieved global acclaim. This beloved title is now coming to multiple platforms: offering a new story, improved gameplay, and polished features! The story starts with two different paths. The first, Canon of Creation, follows the original story told in Shin Megami Tensei V.  The second, Canon of Vengeance, features a new storyline – a dramatic tale of revenge by the fallen.

Canon of Vengeance will diverge from Canon of Creation midway, resulting in a completely different ending. Players will witness  

this dark supernatural tale as it unfolds into two paths. 

Shin Megami Tensei V: Vengeance offers a full-fledged RPG experience with immersive new features, including improvements  to the battle system, Demon Fusion, and field exploration, that will satisfy both newcomers to the series and players who’ve  already completed the original version of Shin Megami Tensei V.
