If you've been able to get some Switch store credit for ~20% off recently, this is effectively $33.60, which would be an all time low.

The Digital Deluxe Edition is also on sale for $59.50 (effectively $47.60 with 20% off gift cards)

Metacritic scores are pretty good (85 critic score at the moment)

Note that despite appearances, the protagonist is a guy.

The Shin Megami Tensei franchise typically features male protagonists because each game is survival driven and "on average male figures have a better chance to survive than females," character designer Masayuki Doi told Siliconera during an interview.
Take from that what you will.

The digital deluxe edition is also 30% off (84.99 -> 59.49). I'd say it's a better deal if one is going to get the DLC.

(Ahh... I have the physical edition already but really can use the DLC... must resist...)

I see that some of the DLC looks like it's basically buying more resources, while others unlock additional monsters to challenge. Do you know if the extra monsters are worth the extra cost for the Digital Deluxe edition? Thanks!

I'm still in the middle of the game but there seems those exp/money-giving enemies popping up pretty frequently already. I wouldn't pay for them.

I guess those extra monsters/demons/fiends are for players who wants to "collect them all". You can of course enjoy the game fully without any of them.

There are 4 DLCs: 2.99+2.99+4.99+9.99=21.96, which is still a little more than the difference between the discounted deluxe edition and the discounted regular edition (59.49-41.99=17.5). So not a bad deal at all.

As for three Mitama demons DLCs (2.99x3), like what roomv said above, I wouldn't pay for them, but at current price, we can treat them as free.

As someone who beat the game, including Shiva and the Demi Fiend, you're going to want to have a roster of level 99 demons. Shiva is the hardest you'll face up to that point, by far. The Demi Fiend is DLC, and is the only option if you're REALLY wanting a tough fight. On Normal difficulty, you can expect to get floored multiple times before figuring out how to deal with him.. and even then you're going to need a lot of luck. The battle will take at least 45 minutes if you're going to have a chance of winning.

I have roughly 70hr into the game, and I've beat one ending with all DLC / completionist run. I could start New Game+ and get another one of the 4 possible endings, but I've moved onto other games (doing Tales of Arise now). Definitely worth it to buy all the DLC for SMT5 in my opinion.
