Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor 2 Record Breaker Headed to the 3DS in Early 2015

Shin Megami Devil Survivor 2 3DS Release Date

Atlus has been working its RPG magic lately with the releases of big titles such as Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth and Etrian Mystery Dungeon on the Nintendo 3DS lately, and it doesn’t look they’ll be stopping any time soon as they’ve just announced that Shing Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor 2 will be coming to the 3DS (exclusively in fact) in early 2015.

In the game’s title, “Record Breaker” refers to a new storyline that players can visit either before or after the main game that nearly doubles the length of the game. Here’s a detailed description:

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.

When the game hits the west, it’s expected to cost about $49.99—a more than reasonable price for such a lengthy experience. You can check out more details about the game on the official Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor 2 website.
