Atlus Unmasks Promotional Collaboration Between Legendary Band Slipknot and Shin Megami Tensei V: Vengeance™

Slipknot's Mask Artist Designs Shin Megami Tensei V: Vengeance-Inspired Demon Masks

IRVINE, Calif. - May 28, 2024 - ATLUS today announced a mask collaboration between their upcoming RPG Shin Megami Tensei V: Vengeance and legendary heavy metal band Slipknot in the first of two promotional videos for the title. The collaboration in these videos will explore the common themes, visuals, and mood that Slipknot and Shin Megami Tensei V: Vengeance share, two iconic forces that are not just similar, but unapologetically metal.

In this first video, Jim Ojala from Ojala Productions, the group behind many of Slipknot's masks, shows the process of creating three different masks based on the demons in the game. As defining visuals for both Slipknot and Shin Megami Tensei V: Vengeance, Jim demonstrates the design process as he and his team sculpt masks inspired by the demons Gurulu, Daemon, and Loup-Garou. Keep an eye on the ATLUS West socials and YouTube channel for the second Shin Megami Tensei V: Vengeance promotional video featuring band members of Slipknot!

Shin Megami Tensei V: Vengeance delivers a full-fledged RPG that explores two narrative paths: the original game's Canon of Creation, or the brand-new Canon of Vengeance. This dramatic new tale of revenge introduces brand-new characters, a new area to explore, a new dungeon, more accessible gameplay, an improved battle system, new demon experiences and greater field exploration in this latest entry in the series.
