Atlus released a new update today in Japan for Shin Megami Tensei III: Nocturne HD Remaster! Update 1.02 includes quality of life improvements including a feature fans have been clamoring for. This feature is skill inheritance for demon fusions! Players can now use the skill inheritance function while fusing demons in the Cathedral of Shadows. Here are the patch notes, courtesy of Persona Central:

Bug Fixes

  • Fixed a bug that prevented trophies from being unlocked under certain circumstances.

  • In combat, the normal attack animation during auto-battle has been fixed to be performed at a high speed.

  • Other bugs have been fixed.

Additional Functions

  • At the “Cathedral of Shadows””, a “skill shuffle” function and a skill inheritance function have been added when displaying the results of a fusion combination.

Function Improvements

  • Improved the responsiveness of each facility, the status screen, the Magatama screen, and the save / load screen.

  • In the “Demonic Compendium,” the total count has been changed so that the total compendium registration rate will reach 100% even when playing on Maniax mode.

  • Game balance has been adjusted in the DLC “Young Master’s Compassion” and “Master’s Expectations”. [Respectively, this was DLC designed to obtain items in an exclusive map to gain more experience points and more money. The difficulty of these maps was previously disproportionate, killing players when they were designed to help players progress.]
