2 September 2013
Summary: Atlus gave DS owners a strategy game treat when they mixed the demon collecting, fusing, and turn-based battles of the Shin Megami Tensei series with a classic tactical RPG formula in 2009's Devil Survivor , bringing fans out of the dungeons and onto a tactical grid . The game followed teens striving to save Tokyo from certain doom by summoning demons using a mysterious pocketable device that resembled a Nintendo DS.
Excerpt: Imagine: your hometown is in ruins and everything you know and love is blown away. You stand amidst piles of rubble that used to be your neighborhood. You can hear the voices of looters in the distance, but desperate thieves are the least of your worries. You hear a cry nearby, something inhuman and lusting for blood. Demons appear from the wreckage, their intentions obvious. You reach into your pocket and take out your only hope: a cell phone.
Excerpt: Once upon a time, the Shin Megami Tensei series took us on a journey to a Japan locked in a crisis destined to end the world within a week. The lives of many characters were covered as the world progressively melted down into a state of chaos, with the final ending changing based on the actions of the player. This game, Devil Survivor , was so good that Atlus decided to do it all over again with Devil Survivor 2 .
Excerpt: Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor 2 has an all new plot and characters, which lets players dive right in even if they haven’t played Devil Survivor . But those who have won’t find much original in Devil Survivor 2. Your protagonist and two of his high-school classmates have gotten into a creepy new fad, signing up for a website that sends subscribers video clips of people they know dying.
Summary: What would people do if they could see others' deaths before they come to pass? As devastation and ruin begin to spread, the player will have to use a mysterious website with the power to predict casualties in order to save lives, save themselves, and ultimately, save the city.
