SMTV: Vengeance comes to Switch on June 14th, 2024 and it’s billed as the definitive version of the critically acclaimed Shin Megami Tensei V. This version is massively expanded with a brand-new storyline featuring new locations, demons, and choices to make that will dictate the fate of all existence.

Ahead of the game’s release, the Japanese voice actress for Sahori Itsukishima, Lynn, shared a lengthy statement about the character, her work on the game, and excitement for the upcoming release in general. You can see her statement in full below.

“I just feel so bad for Sahori. It wasn’t like she was doing anything wrong… I believe that everyone will feel negative emotions at some point in their life, but it was painful to see how she wavered because someone took advantage of her feelings.

When it was announced that I’d be in Shin Megami Tensei V, I was happy to hear a lot of people say “You’re going to be in the Shin Megami Tensei series?! That’s awesome!” I was also glad to hear so many people enjoying it after it came out. Since this is the definitive version of Shin Megami Tensei V, that means it powered up even more, right? I’m even more excited for it now! Sahori’s scenes are the ones that made the most impression on me so I can’t help but feel like saying, “Don’t lose to sadness, everyone!” but of course, I believe that there will be some salvation for the characters. I hope you enjoy the game.”

Shin Megami Tensei V: Vengeance consists of two complete story paths: experience a brand-new route, the “Canon of Vengeance” - a dramatic tale of revenge by the fallen, centered around new characters and an enigmatic cohort of demons, the Qadištu, who plot their own dark designs apart from the war of those who fight to maintain order and those who seek to defy it. Or explore the original story told in Shin Megami Tensei V, the “Canon of Creation” - an eternal conflict between angels and demons, in which the protagonist fights for the world’s fate.

When a grisly murder scene in modern-day Tokyo blocks our protagonist’s walk home, an unplanned detour leaves him buried and unconscious. He awakens in a new Tokyo, a wasteland ravaged by apocalypse now called Da’at… but before bloodthirsty demons can claim his life, a savior emerges, and the two of them unite to become a mighty being, neither human nor demon: a Nahobino.

With newfound power, the protagonist ventures through Da’at, an enigmatic realm filled with mythical deities and demonic tyrants in constant conflict for survival. Searching for answers, the protagonist must forge his own path in a battle between angels and demons to dictate the fate of the world.
