• Guest Characters


As the story progresses, human characters may participate as allies in battle. These characters can fight like demon allies, as well as use items. Make use of the different strengths human allies and demon allies provide to gain the advantage in battle. Ichiro and Yuzuru can use the demon summoning program to add even more allies to your side, including their own demon partners.



• Consecutive Encounters


After defeating an enemy, another demon may appear to continue the battle. This fight will become tougher than usual, but winning will grant you additional Macca and EXP, as well as a higher likelihood of items dropping. Consecutive encounters are more likely to occur when fighting in areas where many enemy demons are gathered. Stay vigilant if you want to avoid them – or use this to your advantage.
