Get ready to save Tokyo from a demon invasion. Atlus is bringing us Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor on June 23 just like a little leak predicted. Devil Survivor is the first Shin Megami Tensei game for the Nintendo DS and unlike the other games it’s a sort of like a strategy RPG. Players move COMPS, teenage demon tamers, and their fiendish friends on an isometric grid, but when it’s time to fight combat switches into a turn based RPG. Think Archaic Sealed Heat.
Outside of battle it’s up to you to solve the mystery of the demon invasion, fuse demons to make stronger allies or sell them in brand new demon auctions. A modified version of the alignment system from classic Shin Megami Tensei games is back too since you can ally with angels, demons, or nobody and rely on yourself. Your choices will change the story and eventually determine one of the multiple endings. Sounds like Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor is going to have a lot of replay value for a $29.99 DS game.
