Shin Megami Tensei DRAW looks like it’s coming to Nintendo Switch on November 11th. The release date seems to have been accidentally leaked on Japan’s official website for Shin Megami Tensei DRAW.
Shin Megami Tensei is a long-running Japanese role-playing game series by Atlus that is actually the precursor to the hit series, Persona. Many of the games in the series are considered cult classics, including the recently remastered game, Shin Megami Tensei 3: Nocturne.
The game’s website was mistakenly updated with release date, gameplay, and story details. Persona Central, where initially caught the leak, note that the November 11 launch date is expected to be a worldwide date, despite appearing only on the game’s Japanese website.
Leaked details say that the game’s protagonist will be a high school student lost in a desert world full of demons known as “Da’ath.” They merge with a mysterious man and become the forbidden object known as “Nabino.” This leads the hero into the midst of a war between gods and demons… a standard story for the world of Shin Megami Tensei.
The game is said to feature over 200 demons, including returning favorites and new works drawn by Masayuki Doi, a longtime character designer for the Persona and Shin Megami Tensei series.
Like previous SMT titles, the game involves the hero advancing through this new world using their new demonic powers and assembling a group of demons to aid them. The leaked details note that the game will have many of the same endings as previous games in the series.
A limited edition has also been confirmed by the leak, but it is unknown if it will be released outside of Japan.
