The game was originally slated for release on June 21 for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and PC via Steam, but will now launch on Friday.

The updated version will feature a new storyline, locations, demons, and choices. The game's digital deluxe edition includes the "2 Sacred Treasure Sets" DLC; the "Mitama Dance of Wealth," "Miitama Dance of EXP," and "Mitama Dance of Miracles" DLC; and two demon subquests. The "2 Sacred Treasure Sets" DLC is also a pre-order bonus for all versions of the game.

The original game launched worldwide for Switch only in November 2021.

Nintendo revealed in January 2017 that Atlus was developing a game for Switch. Atlus USA confirmed in November 2017 that the game would get a release in the West. The game is part of the Shin Megami Tensei franchise's 25th anniversary project, and it uses Unreal Engine 4.
