One of the most famous bosses returns triumphantly in Shin Megami Tensei III Nocturne HD Remaster. The Matador accidentally appears in the Ginza Grand Underpass and is a wall where players can overcome. But how to conquer the terrible devil and continue with the rest of the game?

The first thing to consider is what purpose Matador serves in the game. Until his meeting, players use the new franchise, most likely the offensive abilities associated with occasional healing. But if you don’t know, Shin Megami Tensei is a series that requires the use of buffs and debuffs. If you don’t get these spells by negotiating demons and mergers, the later bosses will absolutely parole your entire party, no matter how high your level.

In other words, it is the Awakening Chief who tests the player’s ability to effectively use the buff and debuff abilities in battle. He does this only because he uses strong Force attacks during his combat and a few rounds later unleashes his most destructive move, Red Capote, which increases his hit and escape four times.

When preparing to fight him, first at least 18. Although it is not impossible to defeat him at lower levels, the battle is much more difficult. Be sure to bring in demons that have buffs that can increase hit / escape, attack, and defense, as this will greatly reduce its effectiveness. To undo the damage caused by his Force attacks, buy Hifumi Magatama at a Ginza store and equip it. Next, hire and connect Angel and Pixie to get Uzume, who should have Media. Not only does it undo the damage of the Force, Media is an amazing healing spell that greatly enhances your party’s survival.

If you are willing to grind around level 18, Wadatsumi Magatama comes with the Fog Breath skill she learned at level 21 and is very useful against Matador as it significantly reduces hit / escape.
