The DS games are more strategy-based, but they do have enclosed SMT-like stories. They include battles with demons, similar to other SMT games, and they can be pretty hard. I'd personally recommend both the 3DS remaster of DS1 and, if it's a good port, I'd recommend this 3DS remaster of DS2, as well. » 1/15/15 5:09pm 1/15/15 5:09pm
