‘Shin Megami Tensei V’ patch brings brightness and display options

Apocalyptic JRPG Shin Megami Tensei V has received a new patch that improves a range of visual features in the game. Developed by Atlus, the fifth core entry in the long-running series – it pre-dates Final Fantasy in their native Japan, and is the franchise that the Persona games were spun off from – sees players caught in an apocalyptic battle between angels and demons, with the throne of God up for grabs. It’s a dark game, and sometimes literally so, which is perhaps part of the reason why the 1.02 update sees a host of camera and lighting options added to the game (as spotted by NintendoLife).
