Game description: Shin Megami Tensei: Digital Devil Saga follows Serf and his four companions as they set out for Nirvana, a land that can only be reached by the champions of Junkyard. A mysterious object awakens demonic powers within the group, allowing each member to transform into a deadly beast. As one of these characters, you can devour your enemies and absorb their powers and special abilities. Defeat opposing tribes by protecting yourself from enemy attacks, deflecting their blows, and performing linked attacks.
Shin Megami Tensei: Digital Devil Saga is a turn-based RPG in which the player controls a group of warriors known as the Embryon and attempts to take control of the Junkyard. Little is known as to why they fight and where they came from. All that is known however is that the one tribe to defeat all the others will earn the right to ascend to Nirvana. It is the first part in a two-part narrative, which is completed in its direct sequel, Digital Devil Saga 2.
