We don’t often see alcoholic beverages for video game collaborations like the one Pac-Man got for its 40th anniversary, but Shin Megami Tensei V (SMT5) is getting its own premium sake, and preorders are now live in Japan.
The collaboration sake is called the “Daiginjo Nahobinokami,” so you know it’s a high-grade sake. The sake itself is brewed by Ozawa Shuzo, one of the premier breweries of Tokyo.
The sake bottle has an original label with an illustration of Nahobino from Shin Megami Tensei V. The Daiginjo Nahobinokami bottle comes in a wooden box with a burnt-in branding in traditional fashion.
Distributor Saketsunagi is now taking preorders in Japan for the premium Shin Megami Tensei V sake for 11,000 yen (~$97.57) a bottle. The bottles will ship on December 14, but expect about three weeks for delivery. Saketsunagi is only distributing the sake in Japan, for now, so those looking to get a bottle will need to find a way to get it in Japan.
About Daiginjo sake
If you’re not familiar with sake terms, we first have the more common Ginjo and Junmai sake. Above those is the more sophisticated Daiginjo, which is often considered the most prized bottling of a brewery. Daiginjo sake not only costs more to make, but it represents the height of a brewmaster’s ability. The distilling process requires 50% milling of the outer rice layers for it to be considered a Daiginjo sake. You can read more about it if interested.
Shin Megami Tensei V is immediately available for the Nintendo Switch. The game’s first update is coming soon with bug fixes and QoL adjustments, and we have plenty of guides to help you conquer the game.
