Post-Game Plus Unlockables in Shin Megami Tensei V
New features such as New Game Plus, carry-over formats, new demons, and Miracles can be unlocked after clearing the main story of Shin Megami Tensei V (SMT 5). Below are all post-game content and details on how to access them once you have beaten the game.
Shin Megami Tensei V has several endings that you can unlock through alignment with various characters throughout the game’s main story. There are a total of 4 endings in the game, the first 3 being the normal endings while the last is considered a “secret” unlockable 4th ending.
Unlocking specific endings also gives you access to various new Miracles, subquests, and obtainable demons which are detailed near the end of this article.
New Game Plus (NG+)
After clearing the game for the first time, New Game Plus (NG+) will be unlocked which allows you to begin a new playthrough with the choice of two kinds of carry-over formats.
Newborn Clear Save Data
The Newborn carry-over format simply lets you transfer the progress of the Demonic Compendium up until the game’s final battle. This includes demon stats, attributes, and affinities. The game difficulty will also be adjusted but not too drastically.
Reborn Clear Save Data
The Reborn carry-over format, meanwhile, lets you transfer the main character’s level, skills, acquired demons, money (Macca), and items. Note that you will essentially be playing from the beginning of the game with end-game progress, making it much easier to advance through the main story.
New Miracles are automatically acquired when you start a new playthrough after beating the game. Two endings are automatically unlocked on your next playthrough (New Game+) on any ending while the last two only become available on ending routes.
|Miracle||Effect||How to Unlock|
|Divine Persuasion||Enemy demons may randomly join you during battle.||Unlocked by beating the game regardless of ending.|
|Divine Eminence||Enable negotiation (Nahobino) with demons that are of a higher level than you.||Unlocked by beating the game regardless of ending.|
|Rank Violation||Removes demon fusion level limit.||Unlocked by beating the game and getting the Uphold God’s Order ending.|
|Inheritance Violation||Can overwrite demon initial skills during demon fusion.||Unlocked by beating the game and getting the Recreate the World and Save Tokyo ending.|
Upon beating the game on specific story routes, new side quests will be available. Many of these are tied to the type of ending you unlock and will allow you to acquire new and powerful demons on the next playthrough.
New Obtainable Demons
More demons are also unlocked upon clearing the game and getting different endings. This requires you to play through the game multiple times to get all unlockable demons. Note that Nuwa (Lady) and Abdiel (both her Herald and Fallen versions) become available for demon fusion regardless of the ending you get.
