    "Defeat an army of demons...? No one said 6th grade would be easy!"

    Based on the best-selling Shin Megami Tensei series in Japan, DemiKids: Light and Dark comes to your GameBoy Advance!

    Choose between the player friendly Light Version or the darker and more challenging, Dark Version.

    No matter which one you choose, you'll be in for the adventure of a lifetime!

    "DemiKids (both Light and Dark Versions) are what the last Pokemon entries should have been...DemiKids is a must-buy." - Game Informer

    The Story

    The year is 200X. Jin (main character of Light Version), Akira (main character of Dark Version), and Lena are 6th grade friends who have grown up together. They are also members of the "Mystery Club" which searches for interesting and mysterious things.

    While snooping around the school�s library, they happen upon a mysterious book containing various spells and incantations. Curiosity overwhelms the group as they decide to carry out a summoning ritual, unprepared for the consequences... To their surprise, an evil demon appears and their only hope comes from a peculiar new student, Amy, who gives Jin and Akira the power to capture and summon demons by way of the gun-like Demiloc. They are also joined by Rand and Gale, guardian demons sent to protect them.

    Jin, Lena, and Amy go through the "Door of Time" to the world of Valhalla. In this world, demons and angels brandish their powers under the emperor while humans are oppressed. Jin, Lena, and Amy team up with the DemiKids of Valhalla to fight as rebels against the emperor's army.

    Key Features

    * Collect over 350 demons by using the special fusion system! Unlock stronger ones by trading with a different version!

    * Demon fusion system allows for hundreds of combinations. Create new demons or make existing ones stronger!

    * Avoid battles and even gain new allies by negotiating with the demonic denizens of Valhalla.

    The Fusion System Each version of DemiKids uses a unique fusion system. Special fusions known as Relic Fusions and Skill Fusions can be performed in either version. While in the Dark Version you will be able to increase the parameters of all party members, in the Light Version you will only be able to increase those of your Partner, the guardian demon that accompanies you.

    Demon Appearances While some of the demons available in each title will overlap, certain ones will be unique to either the Light or Dark Version. Furthermore, the circumstances under which the demons are encountered may also vary. For gamers who wish to use the demon-recruiting aspect of the game to its fullest capacity, linking systems will be an exciting way to enhance their assortment of demon allies.
