Shin Megami Tensei V, the latest JRPG in Atlus’ series, is set in Tokyo, in modern times. You play as a high school student who, after a terrible earthquake, wakes up in Da’At, an alternate universe where Tokyo is ravaged by a war between angels and demons. As the protagonist searches for his friends, he is attacked by demons and nearly loses his life, but is narrowly saved by a being named Aogami. They merge and become a Nahobino, a creature neither human nor demon, similar to a deity. He and his friends are sent to Bethel, an agency tasked with protecting humans from the war between angels and demons, and they agree to help the agency save their version of Tokyo after their return. To do this, the protagonist can keep his powers of Nahobino, and his friends learn to summon demons in defense. Soon after they return to Tokyo, demons arise, and it’s up to you to rise to the rank of god to protect – or sacrifice – the world you live in.
