Nintendo Switch exclusive Shin Megami Tensei V out November

Shin Megami Tensei V comes out November, Nintendo has announced. The announcement was made during the Nintendo Direct show in a new trailer, below:

In the Nintendo Switch exclusive you play a highschool student living in Tokyo who ends up pulled into a different dimension. You find yourself in a post-apocalyptic Tokyo where angels and demons are at war. Helpfully, you fuse with a mysterious figure and gain the power to fight the demons.

Combat uses a command-based system we get to see in the video. The idea is to find a demon's weak point, target it and bring it down.

You can recruit some demons via negotiations, which begin when you open a conversation with them. If the negotiation is successful, the demon will become an ally. Some demons will join as an ally if you reject their request.
