UPCOMING NINTENDO DS STRATEGY RPG SMT: DEVIL SURVIVOR 2, OUT FEBRUARY 28, SUMMONS NEW FULL TRAILER AND OFFICIAL WEBSITE LAUNCH

IRVINE, CALIFORNIA -- FEBRUARY 3, 2012 -- ATLUS today released the full trailer and official website for the upcoming Nintendo DS™ strategy RPG Shin Megami Tensei®: Devil Survivor 2, the sequel to the award-winning Devil Survivor.

The full trailer, aptly named due to it being completely packed with exciting footage, stylishly sets up the game's story and main conflict.  It also gives a great glimpse into how the hybrid RPG/SRPG mechanics work, better demonstrates the players ability to interact with, level up, and grow closer to their party members, and lastly shows the Demon Auction in action. 

Launching alongside the full trailer is the equally aptly named full Devil Survivor 2 official website.  Fans can read up on the history of the series and its developers, learn more about the story in Devil Survivor 2, browse character profiles for the game's protagonists, and better appreciate the title's unique mix of strategy RPG tactics and first-person RPG battles.  Both the trailer and website arrive with less than a month before the game hits shelves, coming to North America after releasing to critical acclaim and strong sales in Japan.

SMT: Devil Survivor 2 for Nintendo DS is currently scheduled to release on February 28, 2012. For more info, visit the official website at http://www.atlus.com/devilsurvivor2.

About SMT: Devil Survivor 2

When a new website that shows the manner of people's deaths in advance makes the rounds amongst Japanese high schoolers, a trio of students is shocked to witness their own deaths in a terrible subway accident just minutes away. They narrowly escape the carnage, only to find themselves in a worse situation--facing otherworldly demons. Desperate to survive, they fend off the demons and flee, but the destruction at the station is only the beginning...

Key Features

  • What if You Could See People's Deaths Before They Happened? -- The spread of a mysterious website that offers a preview of people's deaths, and the great calamity that suddenly strikes Japan-mere coincidence, or part of something larger? A band of high school students must use the website to avert their own deaths, as well as others', amidst the unprecedented nationwide chaos.
  • Recruit Your Party, Build Bonds -- Adding tons of dimension to traditional party mechanics, players recruit new members to their team and then invest time into developing relationships with them. The closer the connection, the more effective they'll be in battle. Every party member is mortal and susceptible to death, however, making it essential that every decision be weighed carefully lest they be lost to the user forever.
  • Collect, Customize, Barter and Fuse Every Last Demon! -- Endlessly addicting, the task of discovering and enlisting new demons to aid you in battle is a staple of the Shin Megami Tensei universe. With nearly twice as many demons to find and unlock as in the original game, there's no shortage of work to be done in assembling and managing an army of demons for battle.
