Looks a lot like Nocturne to me? I dunno, getting some vibes. I like the boys outfit.

I'll pick it up probably. I'm sort of surprised it is for the Switch though. Also feels weird to me that it is coming out already considering the length of time between 3 and 4.

I thought I saw the sleeve of a SMTIV samurai for a second in there, but rewatching, it is probably just a demon that I am not immediately recognizing since all the other corpses in that scene are demons.

It looks good, but...Switch exclusive?  Boooo.

Well, I guess this will count against the Switch's three game minimum.  That puts me at 1/3.

News at 10: Games come out on different systems.

Up next: Electricity? How vital is it for video gaming.

I know, right? I was on Gematsu earlier and 90 of the comments were about people bitching that the game isn't coming to the PS4.

Who still uses electricity? I switched to magnetite years ago. Sure I need to harvest human souls to get it in high enough quantities, but it is just so much cheaper!

If it was inappropriate for me to complain about the platform a game is to be released on, then you need only have told me so; the sarcasm was unnecessary.
Nevertheless, it will not happen again.

You're free to say what you want within reason, you may just have to suffer me making fun of you for it.

Sarcasm gets me through the day, don't make me feel bad for it.

*pulls a book out of hammer space* Didn't you read the law? Sarcasm was outlawed without a license or just cause in 1978 as a result of the sarcasm riots of 1982 that were predicted by a random time traveler. I question whether either of those applied in this case. Clearly an appropriate punishment must be dealt out! *throws the book at Starmongoose*

Wait a second...that book is how I collect magnetite! I just made a horrible mistake! *cries in the corner*

I guess I'm getting a Switch then.

Is there an estimated release date for Japan yet?
I avoid online multiplayer because my brain still works.

Third party console exclusives are simultaneously a thing that exists and also frustrating and dumb. I feel no snark is necessary in response to someone making a point to complain about that.

That being said, SMT has a lot of Nintendo exclusives, including the last main title so it shouldn't really be a surprise that this one is too.

SMT also seems more popular in Japan, and the Switch is portable and therefore is also more popular in Japan. If nothing else, it seems reasonable that the Main Line series would debut on the Ninty Switch, while Persona continues to be Sony-exclusive.

SWITCH!

finally some post Zelda dividends from this stupid machine.

re: @ironmage and console exlusives... that is how I felt about SMT IV since I refused to get a 3DS.

edit: every SMT proper after 1 was a console exclusive. SMT2 was exclusive to SNES, Nocturne was exclusive to PS2, IV was exclusive to 3DS and now V is exclusive to Switch.  In context it's not that surprising.
