Well it is similar to Persona. The system battle at least, the “demons” which are Personas, you can put “Demons” in your team, do fusion, items are the same, etc. The story is not like a Persona game, but it’s still good. But there’s no such thing as “days” or “links”, which was getting annoying, at least for me, to manage all of this. Imo, I love Shin Megami Tensei 3 Remastered on switch. I’m 15 hours in, and it’s easy to go back after a little while. If you love grinding, you’ll love this game, because for bosses, you’ll need good attacks, a good party, and good demons ^^. Imo, if you like jrpg turned based, you’ll love this game I highly recommend! It’s hard sometimes, but totally worth it! Cheers man!
