The developer has uploaded a one minute video showing the mythological hero in battle, along with a brief introduction to Celtic folklore. This is the third spotlight in a series titled Daily Devils in the run up to SMT V‘s release on November 12, 2021.

The new demon is part of the Genma race, as is his fellow Irish folklore hero Cú Chulainn. In Celtic mythology, Fionn mac Cumhaill caught the Salmon of Knowledge while fishing.
