How to save your progress in Shin Megami Tensei V

In order to save, you much reach Leyline Founts, these are blueish, geyser-like elements found on the map. Once you access them, you will be able to save your progress as you go into their menu.

Don’t be afraid to make new save slots too. For example, before fusing a new Demon. If a Demon you just fused actually doesn’t work with your playstyle, or you could have fused it for another Demon, you’ll be able to load your save and redo the fusion.

You can also save before buying new Miracles for the Nahobino, to test their effects. If you don’t like the Miracle and think it’s not worth the Glory, you can load the save to get your precious Glory back.

You should save as much as possible. You can get the tables turned on you in any battle in SMT 5, especially at the beginning of the game. Save often, or you might definitely lose your progress. The reason why:

Is there a Autosave in SMT 5?

Unlike many games nowadays, Shin Megami Tensei V does not have an autosave function. Meaning you must remember to save your game at all times. This might be difficult for many players, as JRPGs nowadays include quality of life enhancements like autosaving.

Furthermore, once you unlock the ability to teleport to the last visited Leyline Fount, you should do that as frequently as possible. Never take risks. Or you will definitely get a Game Over and regret it.

Shin Megami Tensei V is available now on Switch. Note that the game was released two days earlier in Japan with the time zone difference. That’s why you’ve seen some Japanese fans streaming the game already. Some fans around the world also got their physical copy shipped early. Atlus asked fans to properly tag spoilers.
