A post-apocalyptic RPG that you can take anywhere, we here at 148Apps have quite enjoyed our time collecting demons, building a powerful party, and working our way through the game’s story.
The Shin Megami Tensei has never gone light on difficulty, and Shin Megami Tensei Liberation Dx2 is no exception. If you’re a newcomer to the series looking to jump in head first, we have a few helpful tips and tricks to get you started.
Know your demon’s strength and weakness
Shin Megami Tensei Liberation Dx2 features a Turn-based Battle System, and if you hit an enemy with an attack they're weak against, then your demon party will get extra an turn. But be careful this goes for the enemy also. So you need to know your enemies weakness and organize your demon party with that skills.
Learn to Negotiate
Take the chance to negotiate with demons and add them to your party, or earn unique and useful items. If you want to be successful in these dealings, pay attention to the devil’s personality. If the devil is sad, for example, use answers that reflect your foe’s melancholy. This will ensure you win the negotiation.
Negotiations provide an excellent opportunity to acquire rare demons that are hard to find, so to increase the likelihood of Demon Talks occurring you'll want to level-up Megakin. Besides increasing the chances of negotiations happening, he'll also learn skills that allow you to trick demons with greater success.
Don’t forget to upgrade your demons
Shin Megami Tensei Liberation Dx2 is full of different ways to transform your demons into seasoned fighting machines so be sure to explore the many devil customization options available to you.
Quest experience is of course a good way of doing so, but at a certain point you'll want to use Pandemonium to enhance your demons further. One of the first functions you'll unlock through Pandemonium is enhance, which provides a valuable way of upgrading your demons but you won't want to stop there; there's plenty of invaluable features to unlock once you hit certain milestones in the game.
For instance, after clearing level 1 you'll be able to unlock the Evolve function to increase the rarity or amount of stars for your demons.
Once you level up Pandemonium to Level 2, you'll also enable Awaken which let's you unlock your demon's special skill. However, this can be pretty costly when it comes to resources so it pays to be selective when it comes to which demon's you use it on.
There's plenty of other features available to you through Pandemonium, including transferring skills and acquiring skill points through sacrifice, so be sure to invest your time to mastering its functions.
Know your Archetypes when doing Demon Fusion
Another feature of Shin Megami Tensei Liberation Dx2 that you'll want to make use of is Demon Fusion, which allows you to combine two or more demons together to create a new enhanced demon. It's a great way to make use of demons in your compendium that you have no other use for . There are a few rules you'll need to keep in mind in order to make a fusion happen. For instance, at least 1 Common Archetype is needed for a fusion to happen, and, in order to make multi-fusions all demons involved must be a Common type.
There are 5 Archetypes in total, which are denoted by colour; these are Common (white), Aragami (red), Protector (yellow), Psychic (purple), and Elementalist (Teal).
- Common Archetypes are as the name suggests a basic type that feature no special abilities.
- Aragami are built for offence and will learn moves that deal great amounts of damage.
- Protectors, as the name suggests, specialise in protecting as well as buffing the other demons in your party.
- Psychics feature a passive skillset such as boosting mana or resisting ailments.
- Elementalists are the best type for negating your opponents abilities such as Resist, Null, and Drain which make them very useful for tackling tough opponents.
