Both a Shin Megami Tensei III remaster and Shin Megami Tensei V are coming to Switch in 2021

The Shin Megami Tensei series has remained dormant for a bit, taking a backseat to Persona, but that's going to change next year.

Revealed on the Nintendo Direct Mini: Partner Showcase, Atlus had a few announcements for fans this morning. For one, Shin Megami Tensei III: Noctturne, arugably the best SMT game to date, is getting an HD remaster set to debut on Switch in spring of 2021. Yes, this is the game that infamously spawned the "Featuring Dante from the Devil May Cry series" meme.

In other SMTnews, we've finally got another glimpse at Shin Megami Tensei V, the first game in the "main" series since Tensei IV in 2013. Through a brief trailer we learn that it's tentatively set for 2021, and will have a simultaneous worldwide release.

That last bit is pretty huge news, as as Atlus games, even the most recent refresh of Persona 5 (Royal), had a five month delay between the Japanese edition and the western localization.
