I think that miracle where xp boosts are transferred when u do fusions is p crucial. I was like 47 for that fight but my demons were 48-49 and i think it helped. Except i did use my lil fox guy who is only 41 but i can't bring myself to get rid of him lol

there's some stuff in the game code that is leading ppl to believe it could come to PC/PS4, so it might not be a permanent switch exclusive

Beat it (one path, anyways) and it took about 65ish hours, yeah. I did most of the extra stuff but I didn't kill the optional super-boss and I only found about 140 mimans.

I know for a fact I saw an area on top of a mountain in area 2 that was full of Hua Po. I didn't know you need her for Idun. I am trying to find it again now but can't for the life of me

Yea its weird, wonder if they stop spawning after certain plot advancements. Ended up paying to fuse her. Idun and Alice are such a powerhouse team. Just rolled the demon copToggle Spoiler and now i am gonna take down horus.

OK does Alice have her Teddy Bear instant kill 8n this? I will order immediately I don't care of achievements and trophies I just love an end game where 8 keep clicking "Die For Me!" and an army of cute stuffed animals mows down every mob

Alice and Mara are the best

It'd be short for a Persona game, but HowLongToBeat seems to think the last 3 SMT games, as well as some of the offshoots, average about 60-65 hours for a "Main + Extras" clear, so it seems pretty normal.

The fact that it has 4 different paths, and fusions that are locked to each to each individual path, would make getting all the fusions an incredibly daunting task for a 90+ hour game. It's already bad enough as is.

SMT IV took me about 95 but i definitely took my time/sucked/completionist.
I'm currently on the 2nd map at 14 hours so maybe i'm on the long side again

Ya alice has "Die for me!" except the animation this time is a bunch of playing cards and spears. I have been steamrolling map 3 with her/Idun/Artemis. Black Frost is great too, i love his pitched down voice. Belphegor fusion unlocks in a level too.
