Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor 2 Record Breaker On The Way

We’ve got yet another exclusive heading to the 3DS from publisher and developer Atlus—this company has brought us some of the best RPG games we’ve seen in a long time, and is working hard at giving us even more of it! We’ll see some of that in the upcoming Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor 2 Record Breaker.

This game is an expanded and improved version of the DS game Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor, and the “Record Breaker” part of the title evidently harkens to a new episode within the game on the 3DS. This episode allegedly “nearly doubles” the length of the game experience, and you’ll see below that those familiar with the game have the choice of jumping right into the new content instead of playing from the beginning again.

Here’s the press release:

“The world of Record Breaker is on the brink of non-existence. Just before the heralding of the apocalypse, when life was normal, some thrill-seekers were registering on a website that promised to deliver fake videos of their friends being killed. As people wondered what these videos could mean, an invasion began and humanity was forced to face a struggle to survive in an unprecedented catastrophe. For the main character and his friends, they stand up for humanity when the very same website uploads an application on their cell phones, summoning demons. From there, newly minted demon tamers begin the fight to survive and save the future of mankind, but the protagonist’s decisions aren’t without consequences. What he chooses may save the lives of his friends, or seal their fate.

For those who played the original Devil Survivor 2, the new plot expands the story by continuing the game from the ending of the original game. This continuation introduces a new character to the game, Miyako Hotsuin, but her origins are deeply shrouded in mystery. Record Breaker gives players the option of either skipping to the new content right away or playing through the original game first, suiting the needs for all experience levels.”

Yes, there will be full English dialogue for the game, and new abilities featured to keep returning players intrigued. The game should hit North America sometime early 2015 for $49.99. Check out the trailer below for a little more on this upcoming Atlus title!

Dave will tell you that he likes to play video games, this is in fact a lie. What he really likes to do is buy games, and leaving them sitting unopened on his shelf. He is a monster.
