It'sI....think I recognize the next one, but I can't put a name or face to the shadow.
Strix, I think?
Yeah, that's completely understandable. I get the decision. Or maybe in this case they went with the classic design because they prefer it over the other one, I don't know.It shouldn’t be surprising that Atlus are going with the models that are simplest to implement. Every SMT game’s roster has revolved partially around “how much can we get out of this one sprite/model?”. In Nocturne they had base bodies that were reused for dozens of demons, and the P5 models are built on top of those existing models. And while it’d be nice if they changed up the designs for some, that’s the equivalent of making an entirely new demon without even getting to say they’re a new demon.
I think I might have good news for you then, because I'm pretty sure you can catch a glimpse of that exact design in this screenshot from the official site. (The ugly white border is there because of how the site is laid out, in case you were wondering.)
Seeing this, I just hope if Loki is in this game they actually bother to give him his Soul Hackers look and not the Nocturne one, which IMO is just... Boring and extremely simple.
Never noticed this while looking at the screenshots. You have made my day lol becauseI think I might have good news for you then, because I'm pretty sure you can catch a glimpse of that exact design in this screenshot from the official site.

The +3 Wind matches up with IV:A Loki who has +3 in every element. The wing is raised at such an angle that it matches the SH art, while the hair is different enough that it can't be Succubus who is a similarly black-winged blonde. The Soul Hackers Loki design also has an existing 3D model to work off of, so there's no reason for them to not use that one. The same thing will probably happen to Amaterasu, who was an Okuninushi recolor in Nocturne but has her SMT2 design in NINE and IMAGINE.
Someone on Reset Era Google translated the full thing:
Seems we'll be getting commets from Doi going into the future.
Here's the first. Too bad it's not in English lol

Doi-san's Demon Commentary: Amanozako ✨— Official ATLUS West (@Atlus_West) July 26, 2021
Presenting the first entry in Doi-san's Demon Commentary series! Today we're introducing Amanozako, who first appears in front of the protagonist in Da'at and decides to join him on his journey. Isn't she so cute? #SMT5 pic.twitter.com/ycE6AYN5xp
I'd also hate it lolI just had an idea, and I can't tell if I'd like it or hate it.
What if we got an SMT guessing game? The series has loads of options if you include all the protagonists and iconic demons. If you include spinoffs like Devil Summoner you have even more options like Serph and Raidou.
It wouldn't happen, especially considering how unlikely any character other than a mainline protagonist or the Jack Bros. are, but I just wondered what you guys think?
Pretty certain the elementals and mitamas are some of the safest bets. They allow players to keep their favorite demons to the end and customize them.As expected, no unique skill for him. Sad but not surprised.
And... for some reason I wasnn't expecting the elements in this game lol
I'm super late (I've been insanely busy), but while I would love if Demi-fiend was the final boss of V, he did not get a new voice actor for "no reason". It was confirmed in an interview that they lost the rights to all of the original recordings for Nocturne's voice acting. Not only did Demi-fiend receive a new voice- every single character and demon did.It has to be Demi-fiend, the character that now has a new voice actor for seemingly no reason(the original Nocturne and DDS1 are mostly just grunts).
Most of the characters never had voices.I'm super late (I've been insanely busy), but while I would love if Demi-fiend was the final boss of V, he did not get a new voice actor for "no reason".

Finally a new demon. Very interested to see the dog in action. I guess we will probably see some actual cutscenes with him, because we know he's relevant to the plot. He's Yuzuru's demon but I assume we will be able to summon him or something after certain point.Daily Demon 44!
We are Legion, we are many.
Next up.... is the brand new pupper we were introduced to recently!
Oh godDaily Demon 46
Doi demon so unique BIG SUCC animation.
Next one is Demeter so we're on a Doi streak at the moment.
Yeah, we saw a few of them in the last main trailer. Zeus is still MIA, but we have seen Demeter and Anahita... I'm also surprised to see them there, but I am very excited to have them.Oh huh, I guess demons from Deep Strange Journey are making their way in after all. Didn't think I'd see anyone returning honestly. Wonder if Zeus is in the compendium then?
Love how Mazanbarion is just a straight up kamehameha now lolDaily Demon #47
She has an unique healing spell. Looks like it has similar efects to Doping from IV?
Regardless of liking or not her design, she's really well animated here.
Next is Anahita so we're continuing the Strange Journey Redux representation. Fingers crossed for Zeus or Amon to be the next ones after Anahita.
I never used him in Apocalypse but he looks very cool here. I love his dance lolChironnupu
Also, the premium edition is currently in stock in the UK on Amazon, so if you live here and want it, now's your chance. (I finally managed to get one).
