    The plot of Shin Megami Tensei IV: Apocalypse overlaps with Shin Megami Tensei IV (and features some familiar characters), but no previous experience with the original is required! The game features:

    • Divine Intrigue - Choose between peace or anarchy while being a pawn in the gods' chess game.
    • Combat Partners - Hunting demons is dangerous, so count on some backup! Alongside the standard three demons, players will be able to rely on one of seven partners to help win battles.
    • Oodles of Demons - Be on your guard because Tokyo is infested with a series record 450+ demons to fight, fuse, or recruit.
    • Revamped Demon Fusion - Demons will have affinities for certain skills, so players can better plan the outcome of fusions.
    • Classic SMT Combat - Prospective Hunters will exploit weaknesses, boost attributes, and unlock skill bonuses with the returning Press Turn and Smirking systems.

    The assists are sometimes of an element/attack type that the enemy is strong/absorb/reflect against

    Yup, everyone of SMT IV is in it, most of everyone if i'm not mistaken.

    He sometimes Uses Fire attacks on Bosses that Absorb/Reflect or Nulls the element, or uses Physical attacks with low hit chance and misses.
