How many Shin Megami Tensei veterans canceled fusion because the new demon didn’t randomly inherit the right skills? I have dozens of times. Fusing demons can be a painful process if you must have a Jack Frost that can cast fire or an Odin with a cure spell.
Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey tackles the problem by introducing demon souls. If your relationship with a demon is good they may pass you their soul as an item when leveling up. You can use devil source during fusion to pass down skills. This way you won’t have to cancel/fuse/cancel/fuse just to give your next demon Mediarama, if you have Pavarti’s source lying around.
The system is almost as easy as using gems to teach skills in Shin Megami Tensei: Persona which we’ll be talking more about soon.
Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey comes out in Japan on October 8.
