Shin Megami Tensei 5 soon available on Xbox Game Pass

Sega and Atlus' multiplatform hit RPG will soon be available on Xbox Game Pass, according to the latest rumors.

Fans of the Shin Megami Tensei series have been eagerly waiting for news about the franchise’s latest release, Shin Megami Tensei 5. And it seems like the wait might be over soon. According to a tweet by the well-known industry leaker Sn0w1n, Shin Megami Tensei 5 is set to be released on Xbox Game Pass in addition to PlayStation and PC.

This announcement has come as a pleasant surprise for Xbox fans who have been yearning to get their hands on the latest entry in the Shin Megami Tensei series. However, as with any rumor, it should be taken with a grain of salt until an official announcement is made. The news is expected to be confirmed at the upcoming Shin Megami Tensei Series 30th anniversary event, which is scheduled to take place on May 5 and 6, 2023.

Sega and Atlus’ multiplatform hit RPG will soon be available on Xbox Game Pass, according to the latest rumors.

The arrival of more Shin Megami Tensei titles on Xbox Game Pass was previously hinted by the host of The XboxEra Podcast, Shpeshal Nick. According to him, Microsoft is looking to collaborate with Atlus, the developers of Shin Megami Tensei, to bring more titles to Xbox consoles, just like they did with the Persona series.

Shin Megami Tensei 5 was developed and published by Atlus and is a 2021 role-playing video game. The game was designed as a cross between Shin Megami Tensei III: Nocturne and Shin Megami Tensei IV, featuring returning gameplay mechanics such as raising and fusing demons. The game has been a critical and commercial success, having sold over a million copies as of April 2022.

The Shin Megami Tensei series has been around for a long time, and it’s the primary series of Atlus. Persona, its spinoff series, has become more popular over the years, but the series still has a loyal fan base. The series has jumped between platforms in the past, so it wouldn’t be too surprising to see Shin Megami Tensei 5 become multiplatform.

For instance, Persona 5 originally released exclusively on PlayStation 4 but later became available on other platforms, including PC, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch. Similarly, Shin Megami Tensei IV was a Nintendo 3DS exclusive, while Shin Megami Tensei 5 was a Switch title that was only released in 2021. If Atlus is actually working on bringing Shin Megami Tensei 5 to other platforms, it would likely be a big boost to the series.

While there has been no official confirmation about the release of Shin Megami Tensei 5 on Xbox Game Pass, the rumors are exciting for fans of the series. The Shin Megami Tensei Series 30th anniversary event is just around the corner, and we can expect more information to be revealed at that time. If the rumors turn out to be true, it will be interesting to see how the game performs on Xbox consoles and whether it will attract a new fan base to the Shin Megami Tensei franchise.
