A new lease of life

We reported yesterday that the latest Famitsu magazine would have fresh information on the 3DS port of Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor 2 — also dubbed Break Record — in Japan, and quite a few details have indeed been released.

The game has been given a summer release window in Japan, along with full voice work for the characters and anime sequences with 3D effects — however, graphically it is said to be similar to the DS version, with the action apparently taking place on the bottom screen like in Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor Overclocked. Kou Yoshinari — best known for his artwork and character designs in the Valkyrie Profile video game series — will be handling all illustrations for the game.

Gamers can choose to play the 'original scenario', where the story is the same as the original but with new features and enhancements, or the 'new scenario', which is set to take place after the ending and features another invasion.

The original DS version of Devil Survivor 2 hasn't reached Europe yet, releasing in North America on 28th February last year. Ghostlight — a potential publisher of the title — hasn't dismissed the fact that it may land in the region at some point, so all hope isn't lost.
