    How to Access the New StoryShin Megami Tensei V Vengeance

    ATLUS has made it absurdly easy to access the new story content within SMTVV. Just start the game like normal and proceed through the introductory scenes. Not long after inputting the player’s name, a cutscene will offer the protagonist a choice. A girl is silhouetted – inviting the player to forge a never-before-seen path. A path of vengeance and chaos. All you have to do is take the girl’s hand. The game will double-check with the player after the scene ends to ensure that this is what they want. Remember, there are no takebacks after this. If you want to play the other storyline you’ll either have to start a new save or wait to do it on New Game Plus moving forward.
