How can I fuse thee?  Let me count the different ways...  

Continuing ATLUS' conquest of the portable consoles, the original Shin Megami Tensei is now coming to the iOS phone near you!

Start from the very beginning of the series, clock in over 40-60 hours of playtime, and get to know your demons better.  But of course, you must be curious about the plot...

Step away from clear notions of good and evil, right and wrong. There are demons in the world, but whether they are ally or enemy depends on player actions. In Tokyo 199X, a mysterious murder leads to the emergence of demons and an escalating global conflict thanks to the rise of a charismatic rebel leader in possession of a demon army, and external forces that wish to crush such threats with extreme measures. As the protagonist, players have an unusual ability (via computer program) to communicate with and recruit demons to fight for them. As they collect demons, the program will allow you to store, summon, and fuse them to create the right team to negotiate the ever-changing balance of powers, and fight for the kind of world you ultimately wish to live in.
