Shin Megami Tensei V received a release date and a brand new trailer during Nintendo‘s E3 Direct.

Also shown in the video is the command based combat system that will reward players who exploit enemy weaknesses with extra action in their turn. Shin Megami Tensei‘s usual demon negotiations also feature heavily, letting players recruit demons to their side.

Recruited demons can be used in combat, bringing new abilities to the table. They can also be fused together to create new, more powerful demons, with the results of fusion also able to inherit skills during the process.

As noticed by NintendoLife, the Japanese trailer for Shin Megami Tensei V is far more thrilling, focusing on demon combat and flashy attacks rather than explanations of the combat mechanics. It does, however, lack any subtitles.

Nevertheless, if you want to see the aforementioned action, you can watch the trailer below:
