This Shin Megami Tensei Social Game Is Designed For DemiKids

By Spencer . July 13, 2011 . 2:19am

devilchWay before Shin Megami Tensei became a brand in North America, Atlus tried to make the series appeal to kids. They localized the Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Children for Game Boy Advance as DemiKids Light and Dark. The kid friendly spin-off hasn’t seen a new game since 2004, but it’s coming back as a social game for GREE.

 

The DemiKids social game has players search for demons (called "devils") scattered throughout the world. You’ll complete quests, battle demons with other demons you captured, and run into new demons made for the game. The goal of DemiKids is to become the strongest Devil King and you can test your might everyday in tournaments that take place at set times.

 

Index added features like social fusion where you can combine demons with another player. You can also assist a player by giving them your demons or macca. DemiKids was designed with cooperative play in mind. DemiKids is available now on GREE mobile phones.

    I can see it now! A demikids anime spin off complete with main character on a quest to become a devil master! He’ll collect eight comp chips to earn the right to challenge the Amala League. It will be great!

    Who’s that devil!?

        “Then in 2002 they made another anime which was 52 seasons long called Devil Children: Light and Dark.”

        52 seasons long? Man, that must have been really successful! Not even The Simpsons are that popular!

      The game still doesn’t appeal to kids because its full of unpleasant concepts like demons,devils,summoning,satanism enventhough they make them look cute
