DemiKids Light Version is part of a duology with DemiKids Dark Version, developed by Multimedia Intelligence Transfer. The two games together make up a second generation of Devil Children games. Unlike many other multi-version games, there are a large number of changes between Dark Version and Light Version. The DemiKids games were also the first to receive a Shin Megami Tensei banner in North America.

Story & Version Differences[edit | edit source]

The year is 200X. Jin, Akira, and Lena are three childhood friends who like to investigate strange and mystifying things. One day Lena finds a strange book in the library, and along with the mysterious transfer student Amy, brings the group to read it after class. Much to Amy's chagrin, they recite an incantation from the Demon Compendium (Akuma Compendium in Japanese) to summon a demon, and succeed. However, the demon is hostile, and Amy is forced to hand Jin and Akira a Demiloc (Devil Risers in Japanese) to fight back. Jin manages to summon Rand, a Sol Cat (Sol Leo in Japanese) who becomes his demon partner for the rest of the game, as well as awakening Jin's latent Demikid powers (Devil Children powers in Japanese). Amy then tells Jin and Akira that they are the Devil Children that will decide the fate of her world. Jin, Lena, and Amy then passes through a "Door of Time" to Amy's home land of Valhalla, while Akira travels through another portal into Dem, a land that is fully inhabited by demons. There they enter a war against evil ruler known as Imperius who plans on conquering all three different worlds. The demons realm Dem, Amy's home land of Valhalla, and the group's own home world.

Jin's story line revolves mostly around the Law based path found in other Shin Megami Tensei games. He starts in the the Time Tower and then goes to the Forest of Sorrow, the reverse of Akira's arrival in Dem.

Of the 362 demons obtainable in both games, Light Version only has a 181 that can be captured/negotiated with via normal gameplay. Of that total, 45 of them are unique to Dark and require trading between Dark Version to obtain them all. Yet the remaining 45 of them can be obtained in both versions as special fusions. There are also super unique ones to Light Version that pertain to the Sol Leo's infusion which totals 9 unique forms bringing the total to 370 per game.

Characters[edit | edit source]

  • Rand: The demonic guide belonging to Jin.
  • Gale: The demonic guide belonging to Akira.
  • Akira: The Dark Version protagonist. He is a studious boy who discovers he is a Devil Child.
  • Shin: A Devil Child from the land of Valhalla.
  • Lena: Jin and Akira's friend who enjoys mysterious things. Has a habit of lecturing people.
  • Amy: A mysterious girl from Valhalla who gives Jin and Akira Demilocs.
  • Lucifer: The lord of darkness himself. His role in the story varies between Light and Dark versions.

Gameplay[edit | edit source]

DemiKids Light Version features the same style of gameplay as featured in earlier Devil Children games. The game world is navigated in a 3rd person perspective, however battle is handled in first person, similar to the earlier Shin Megami Tensei. Unlike most Megami Tensei games, the moon phase mechanic is not used. The game's fusion mechanics are more complex than Dark Version, however.

Some demons are only available in the DemiKids: Dark Version. Players can use a link cable to fuse or trade demons, and battle against each other. In comparison to the Dark Version, the Light Version features less challenging gameplay and rather simplified mechanics. There are more items and macca present in Light Version than in Dark Version, making it more of an "Easy Mode" game.
