Shin Megami Tensei V - Gameplay Details
You can talk to enemy demons to turn them into an ally instead. Demons all have their own personalities and quirks, and this game will feature all-new behavioral patterns. It is said that the temperaments of demons also are influenced by moon phases, particularly beneath full and new moons. Demons are hard to read and harder to convince, but taking chances with outlandish responses is part of the fun. In addition, having certain demons in your party may lead to special conversations with enemy demons you encounter. Certain demons that share mythological connections sometimes seem to recognize each other; experiment, and you may be surprised by what ensues.
Demon fusion allows you to combine two demons to create a new one. Aside from the basic 2-demon fusion, you can also perform "reverse fusion", where you’re able to see the results first and select the necessary demons accordingly; special fusions, which involve fusing 2~4 demons to create even stronger ones; and elemental fusions, which allow you to upgrade or downgrade to another demon within the same family. Fusing allows you to transfer your favorite skills freely into newer demons (aside from a few exceptions)-- visit Sophia in the World of Shadows to create your own unique, powerful demon!
