Miss Out on the Shin Megami Tensei V Fall of Man Premium Edition? Don’t Fret (UPDATE)
(UPDATE: All retailers are now sold out). Today was the day that Shin Megami Tensei fans were waiting for. Pre-orders for the upcoming Shin Megami Tensei V opened, though that wasn’t the only news for the day. Atlus revealed the Shin Megami Tensei V Fall of Man Premium Edition, with pre-orders opening for it today as well. Unfortunately, the $120 premium edition sold out in North America through retailer GameStop. Now the pre-orders are selling on eBay for $400+. Fans of course were not happy to see this, but don’t fret, as there may still be some hope left.
In a press release sent by Atlus, GameStop was only one of the retailers listed for the Fall of Man Premium Edition. The other two, Best Buy and Amazon, have yet to go live with their pre-orders. In fact, their standard editions have yet to become available as well. Some fans were afraid that the premium edition was GameStop exclusive, but thankfully, that isn’t the case. The game will still be in high demand, but we at least have two more chances to claim the coveted prize. Atlus even responded to the frustrated fans on Twitter to assure them that it was not the only opportunity.
To those that aren’t aware, the Fall of Man Premium Edition includes some great collectible goods. Not only will it come with a beautiful steelbook, but it will also come with a 100 page “Demon Hand Book,” a 2-disc soundtrack, and a sling bag. All of this will be included with the game in a collectible box adorned with art from the game. Those that opt for the standard edition will still be able to score a steelbook with their pre-order.
To celebrate the pre-order launch, Atlus released a new gameplay trailer for the game. It might not make up for the pre-order fiasco today, but it’s great to see more of the game in action. You can view the new trailer below.
Shin Megami Tensei V launches exclusively for the Nintendo Switch on November 12th, 2021. Are you one of the lucky few to secure a Fall of Man pre-order?
