Thanks for the responses! I was just looking at the series in general not just this game, so I guess I'll look out for Nocturne or Strange journey to give the main series a try.


Just make sure to never get attached to anything in the games.


You mean the demons? Are they incredibly expendable?


Yeah, it's not that they're expendable but that it's always better to fuse if you want to keep things at your level.

the main series story gose like this(sorry if its confusing)
the worlds end and you and few friends survive and now the world is run by demons
and ppl who worship god and wants to force it on the world
you go around trying to find whats going on and talking&recruiting demons and fusing them to get stronger demons

your 2 friends

one was killed by a demon and got rasuracted by the worshipers and became there Messiah
http://megamitensei.wikia.com/wiki/Law_Hero?file=LawHero2.jpg

and the other one wanted to be strong to protect and stronger then the MC
so he fused himself with a demon
http://megamitensei.wikia.com/wiki/Chaos_Hero?file=ChaosHero2.jpg

both of them wants to create there own world
and you have 3 choices

join law:make the world run by god and take ppl free will
join chaos: make the world run by demons (strong eats the weak world)
go neutral: reject both and kick there hide for humanity


this is what the main series is about
there are spin-offs thats take place before or after the main series or dosint take place at all

I see what you meant now, yeah I wouldn't get too attached to any of the demons, not enough to prevent them from fusing.

Also the story of following a lawful or chaotic friend sounds pretty cool, are all the main games like that or just the original?

I should also throw in that in the more recent ones i.e. Nocturne and the Devil Survivor games there are more than just 3 routes. Theres still law, chaos, and neutral, but I suppose its like there are multiples of each. Like in Devil Survivor there are 5(?) different endings depending on who you side with.

Yeah Devil Survivor had 5 but one of them split so there were 6 kind of.Only in the Overclocked version.

Demons CAN be kept if you work hard for them. It is especially easy in NG+ because of the tools you have.
