It’s been a while since I’ve played the first Devil Survivor game last year. And now I am playing this game that had been released 2 days ago. Gameplay is still more of the same as the predecessor, but with new elements like “Fate System”; a Social Link-like mechanism inspired from Persona 3 & 4, improved fusion methods and also the well-known SMT’s Demon Compendium added in this game, these will make the game m0re fun & enjoyable. Difficulty is the most annoying part in this game, but if you keep leveling up you’ll not facing that issue again.
The story is very deep & intriguing. If you watched the teaser trailer, the story have bits of “Final Destination”. And I love the boss-of-the-day creature; Septentriones design made by Mohiro Kitoh (Bokurano), it feels like Evangelion-ish y’know, they came out from nowhere.
Picture above is the US cover box of the game, released on 28/2/12. And below one is the backside of the box. (Click the picture to enlarge)
And here’s the game opening where the awesomeness begin, and it’s my favorite too!

P.S.: You can get the ROM file at this site, but it’s pretty buggy, so you’re encouraged to buy the original so you can support the company to make great games in the future.
P.S. 2: Now we’re waiting for the very last true NDS game, Pokémon Black 2 & White 2…
