SMT V – Japanese physical limited edition

Sega and Atlus announced a physical limited edition is being released in Japan, titled the “forbidden Nahobino box”, priced at 16,280 Yen (Tax included) – It contains:

  • A copy of Shin Megami Tensei V on Switch
  • A Mini OST of 2 CDs, 35 tracks in total, containing rearranged versions of several BGMs from Shin Megami Tensei I to IV Final (Apocalypse). Some tracks from SMT V are included as well
  • Demon encyclopedia: An A5 book of 116 pages containing artwork and descriptions of the 200+ demons appearing in SMT V
  • T shirt designed with a theme that fits Nahobino, the name of the protagonist’s and Aogami’s fusion

All of the Limited Edition is included in a case with an illustration themed around the “tree of knowledge” featured in SMT V.

In Japan, as it’s always the case with new game releases, SMT V will have shop specific pre order bonuses. You can check out the list yourself on the official site if you’re planning to import.

As a side note, right now Atlus Japan regularly publishes new SMT V short trailers, introducing the game’s demons. Only four introduction videos have been released so far, but it’s worth keeping an eye on them. Some of the demons in SMT V have new character designs. Some were not featured in Persona 5, and are getting modeled in 3D and HD for the first time.
