Shin Megami Tensei V may come to PC

It looks very possible that there may be a Shin Megami Tensei V PC release, despite the fact that most of the SMT series and Persona spin-offs have skipped PC. This is according to a list that is data-aminated from the game’s files, which means that the current Switch-exclusive SMT5 could join the other amazing JRPGs on PC.

Shin Megami Tensei 3: Nocturne was actually released on Steam earlier this year, and despite its age – it was originally released on PS2 and is almost twenty years old – it is quite well regarded and currently has a “very positive” rating. Shin Megami Tensei IV was exclusive to the Nintendo 3DS, so it will not be ported right now, but Shin Megami Tensei V was released on the Nintendo Switch on Friday, November 12th.

Computer miners dug into the Switch game’s files and discovered details about “target platforms”, which are named as Switch, PS4 and Windows PC. There are also suggestions for different graphics settings which can be changed – such as resolution, finishing, shadow quality and texture quality – which you only find in a PC version.

The huge GeForce Now leak earlier this year actually showed a PC version of Shin Megami Tensei V, and Shin Megami Tensei 3: Nocturne also released on Switch, PS4 and PC. Furthermore, SEGA has previously stated that they want to make more PC ports, and SMT’s Japanese publisher Atlus has quizzed players about games coming to PC, so a PC port of Shin Megami Tensei V is not out of the question.

Shin Megami Tensei V is currently sitting at 85 on Metacritic, so it would be good to see it on PC – even though we’re still waiting for Persona 5. At least we got the fun Persona 5: Strikers this year.
