Bethel’s Sacred Space - Shakan

In this work, the story takes place in the real Tokyo and another devastated Tokyo, Da'at.​ ​Canon of Vengeance will feature a new dungeon, "Shakan."
A sacred place and a forbidden land hidden in Shinjuku.​
Shakan possesses a solemn atmosphere.
The rotation devices and the angels that guard the sacred place stand in the way.


World of Shadows

In addition to combining demons in the world of paganism that one visits by accessing the leyline fount, the protagonist and his/her demons can be strengthened through the Apotheosis.


Within the Netherworld, one can obtain Glory, which represents the majesty of God. In the World of Shadows you can learn Miracles by using Glory. ​ Miracles are considered miraculous deeds that alter the world's providence, and the types of Miracles range from those that give an advantage in Netherworld exploration and battles against demons, to those that affect conversation, fusion, skill affinity, and growth.​ Collect Glory, learn Miracles, and strengthen the protagonist.​ Some Miracles can be turned on or off at will.

New Miracle - Support Skill: Estoma

Numerous new Miracles have been added. One of the skills, Estoma, can be activated by triggering a Magatsuhi gauge. While it is activated, you are undetectable by all but a few demons on the field, and when you encounter a demon, the demon disappears, and combat will be avoided.​


Demons and characters in the field requests help in “Subquests”, which, if completed, will reward the user with various rewards.
There are a wide variety of subquests, such as those where you "take control of a demon,"...
... as well as "timed quests" which must be completed within a certain number of moon phases.
In addition to events that occur in Da'at, subquests may also occur in real Tokyo.

Subquest – Return of the True Demon

The DLC quests sold in Shin Megami Tensei V are included in this title as standard features.
One of them, "Return of the True Demon," can be completed by fulfilling certain conditions.
Demi-fiend (Chaos) can be added as your party member.
A true challenge for the experienced adventurer...
... this quest will test your tactics and courage in a battle like no other!

Virtual Trainer

Located with the Diet Building is the Virtual Trainer, which allows you to challenge past foes in either a single fight or a series of continuous battles.​ In the battle format, players can choose between the "Original Mode" which faithfully reproduces the strength of the enemy, and the “Challenge Mode" in which the enemy has been greatly enhanced compared to the original mode.
​In the "Challenge Mode," each time the game is cleared, the level of enemies to be rematched increases by 100.
The battle with the virtual trainer will still result in a game over if you lose, so be sure to prepare carefully before taking on the challenge.

Level Limit Breaking

By fulfilling certain conditions, a new Miracle [Moral Transcendence] can be acquired. Once learned, the maximum level of Nahobino and his demons can be increased to 150, so create the strongest party of your own to your heart's content.
