Tokyo is about to collapse and your main weapon to fight back is… a Nintendo DS? Sort of. Devil Survivors use Communication Players (COMPs) which just look like a Nintendo DS to forge pacts with demons. A subtle level of immersion since Devil Survivor is a DS game.

 

After you befriend demons, like series regulars Jack Frost and Pyro Jack, you can summon them. When you move into battle Devil Survivor looks like this…

    I like how it looks like it’ll play. The character designs aren’t all that interesting, but I can overlook it if the gameplay is right.

  • Sora

    is the battle animation are like valkyrie and disgaea, this game will be awesome, one of the reasons why I didn’t like fftactics for ds, with no animation got bored real quick

  • Kuronoa

    Looks like another possible great Megami Tensei game. ^_^ I hope Atlus doesn’t take to long to localize this.

    Trace Memory beat them to it.

    Definitely like the classic SMT-style battle interface. Though I’m not big on SRPGs, this one may grab my interest if the unique SMT elements are well-implemented.
