The launch edition of Shin Megami Tensei V will come with a steelbook case. In order to secure the steelbook case, you'll probably want to preorder. Subsequent print runs of the game may not come with the steelbook.

Shin Megami Tensei V is set in modern-day Tokyo and stars a teenage protagonist who gets pulled into a wasteland filled with demons. They soon meets up with a mysterious guy named Aogami, and the pair fuse together. Throughout the adventure, Aogami provides advice and commentary. Like previous entries in the Shin Megami series, you'll be able to raise and fuse demons you encounter. The combat system lets you string commands together to aim for vulnerable spots on demons. Of course, instead of fighting a demon you can try to befriend them through conversation.
