New Devil Summoner Clip Has A Glimpse Of Raidou in SMT: Nocturne

By Spencer . September 19, 2008 . 3:13pm

Famitsu posted a new trailer for Devil Summoner: Raidou Kuzunoha vs. King Abaddon which some kind person placed on YouTube for easy embedding. If you played Devil Summoner: Raidou Kuzunoha vs. the Soulless Army you should recognize a decent number of characters. Many of Raidou’s friends and demons return in the PlayStation 2 sequel. At the end of the trailer there is a teaser for Shin Megami Tensei: Nocturne Maniax Chronicle Edition. Yes, it’s cool to see Raidou summon a demon from a test tube in another game, but does he really have a significant role? Or is Raidou going to have a boring role like Dante in this remix?



One other Raidou mashup is Raiho, a combination of Raidou and Hee-Ho Jack Frost’s catch phrase. Konamistyle is giving out Raiho plushies as a pre-order bonus in Japan. Here’s a look at what you’re unlikely to get even if Atlus picks this game up as one of their localization projects.

    I MUST GET THAT KONAMISTYLE. Raiho would look so swell next to my Kuma plushie.

    Incredibly stylish. Atlus R&D makes the best games, bar none! This better get a USA release, and given their recent streak, I wouldn’t rule out the plushie.

    Ahhhhhhhhhh I want that plushie. I WANT JACK FROST!

    …sorry, just had to say it.

    That Raihou is so awesome!

    DO WANT!

  • Cool. I enjoyed the first Devil Summoner title we got the other year. Lots of stylistic flair. Ho-hum gameplay mechanics, but that’s not what interests me half of the time.

    I wonder if they’ll claim it’s a different Raidou in SMT: Nocturne since he did get lost in time/space in the first game. Who knows; maybe he got lost again and wound up in a destroyed/inverted Japan with tons of uglies running around. He’s probably in heaven… running around and forcing every creature in sight into tubes… awesome.

  • Don’t think they’ll bother with continuation problems, with Dante in the first version he was just kind of wandering around .

    From the video they seem to be reusing a lot of the backgrounds from the other Devil summoner game. Hopefully there are a lot of new areas too!

    “running around and forcing every creature in sight into tubes..” XDD

    *cough* anyway, looks stylish, very stylish. and interesting.
