Shin Megami Tensei V: Vengeance allows players to enjoy the story of Shin Megami Tensei V in its entirety, with a new story path, untold in the original.

The latest title in the series, Shin Megami Tensei V: Vengeance allows players to enjoy the story of Shin Megami Tensei V in its entirety, with a new story path, untold in the original.  Massively expanded with new areas, demons, and music, Shin Megami Tensei V: Vengeance features more accessible gameplay, an improved battle system, new demon experiences, and greater field exploration. 

When a grisly murder scene in modern-day Tokyo blocks the protagonist's walk home, an unplanned detour leaves him buried and unconscious. He finds himself in a wasteland ravaged by apocalypse now called Da'at. Before bloodthirsty demons can claim his life, a savior emerges, and they unite to become a mighty being, neither human nor demon: a Nahobino.

Shin Megami Tensei V: Vengeance delivers a full-fledged RPG that can be enjoyed by existing and new fans. At the beginning of the story, the player is presented with two divergent paths. The story told in Shin Megami Tensei V, the Canon of Creation, and a brand-new route, Canon of Vengeance, a dramatic tale of revenge by the fallen.​ The Canon of Vengeance follows the scenario of SMTV but changes drastically from the latter half of the game. The outcome will be completely different.

Enjoy the two divergent stories to your heart's content.​

Atlus revealed that Shin Megami Tensei V: Vengeance has sold over 500k units worldwide in its first three days, culminating in over 1.6 million copies for the SMT V series.

The battle system, demon fusion, and field exploration have also evolved in depth with the addition of new elements, delivering a full-fledged RPG that can be enjoyed by those who have already played SMTV, as well as those who are playing this series for the first time.

Shin Megami Tensei V: Vengeance is available for Nintendo Switch, PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PC (Steam).
