The release date and story details for the long-awaited Shin Megami Tensei V have reportedly leaked from the game's official Japanese website, according to a report from Persona Central.

It looks like these details were uploaded to the website inadvertently, perhaps intended to be a reveal in the coming weeks during E3-related streams. While we at RPG Site are not able to directly verify the leak, Persona Central took screencaps of the broken-state website with the details, which clearly show a release date of November 11, 2021 on Nintendo Switch, along with story details regarding the game's world and premise.
