A leak on 4chan has revealed what appear to be promotional images for Shin Megami Tensei 4, 4: Apocalypse, and 5, suggesting that they are headed to Xbox, PlayStation, and PC. In addition, the leak reveals that Shin Megami Tensei 3: Nocturne is coming soon to Xbox Game Pass. The aforementioned images can be seen below.
The Steam, Xbox, and PlayStation logos are visible among the listed platforms for Shin Megami Tensei 3, Shin Megami Tensei 4, Shin Megami Tensei 4: Apocalypse, and Shin Megami Tensei 5. The images feature screenshots from the aforementioned titles. One interesting thing to note is that the map UI for Shin Megami Tensei 4 appears to be different from the one found in the original release on the Nintendo 3DS.

It’s likely that the above leaked images are taken from a presentation that is to be held at the event.
The arrival of more Shin Megami Tensei titles on Xbox Game Pass was previously also hinted during an episode of The XboxEra Podcast by host Shpeshal Nick, who mentioned that more Shin Megami Tensei titles could be headed to Xbox consoles in the future.
