Creepy Website In Devil Survivor 2 Has Your Face On It

By Spencer . June 17, 2011 . 2:39am

Not yours… the protagonist’s and his two classmates Daichi and Io. We casually mentioned the gruesome website last week in our Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor 2 announcement. Now we have more information about it. In the Japanese version, the page is called Nicaea, "a dead face delivery site" running in beta. Rumor has it you can see videos of your friends who have died.

The protagonist gets an e-mail with a video of his face on Nicaea. Io and Daichi receive similar messages, but all three characters are alive. The scene from the movie begins to play out in real life when you’re caught up in a subway accident. You get knocked out and when you regain consciousness you see an unbelievable scene.

 

During Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor 2 you will receive e-mails from Nicaea and this information can be used to save your friends. Players can choose either Tiko (the girl with bunny ears) or Tycho (the well dressed guy) as their Nicaea contact.

The protagonist also meets a mysterious melancholy man (striped red shirt) who gives the hero an important message and calls him a "shining person." Famitsu also revealed Tuesday’s invader and if you’ve been following our Devil Survivor 2 coverage you probably already know its name – Phecda. All of the invaders are named after stars in Ursa Major, specifically the seven that form the Big Dipper.

Phecda’s power is controlling wind.

 

Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor 2 comes out on July 28 in Japan and early next year in North America.

    I can rest easy knowing that Atlus USA has already confirmed this title for localization. It’s nice to know that the Nintendo DS will get one last masterpiece before it goes quietly into the night.

      Calling to the night~

    OH SHT, HOW DO YOU EXPECT ME TO WAIT FOR DEVIL SURVIVOR 2 FOR 3DS?! I wont be able to! T-T

  • https://twitter.com/RaiohV ShinkaRaioh

    This reminds me of another game/anime/manga I’m not sure, but it’s super familiar….damn you brain remember that thing! >_<

    • http://thrust-the-sky.deviantart.com/ WildArms

      I also think i’ve seen something familiar, where the characters get like pics of the ppl dying in the future… Or something like that… But i dont remember whereeee D:

      • https://twitter.com/RaiohV ShinkaRaioh

        Yeah exactly, or pics of themeselves or their friends or something I can’t remember, and it kills me!!! >__<

        • Zero_Destiny

          The same for me. It sounds so similar to something. Then again it is kinda a cliche in horror movies like Final Destination. lol But I could swear it sounds like some kind of anime/manga that I’ve seen before. >_<

          Well the best I can come up with is that it reminds me of Future Diary where their diaries they write on their cell phones can tell the future. It also reminds me of Gantz b/c of the incident in the sub-way. XD

          EDIT: PERSONA 2!!! That might be what I’m thinking of. If you call your own cellphone it’s rumored that Joker will to grant your wish. Anyone who fails to tell Joker their wishes, either because they lack one or refuse to tell, has their “ideal energy” stolen, reducing them to ambition-less shells called Shadow Selves.

            I get your point with P2, but that’s not what I’m thinking of, I still can’t remember what it was, but I know it was almost exactly like DeSu2, picture of near future death, the MC has to prevent that from happening.

          • Zero_Destiny

            Future Diary still seems like a close fit to me though. lol But maybe I’m just imaging that.

            Ummm… OHHHH!!! I THINK IT COULD BE THAT ONE, but he got them on the computers! O-O!

        • http://thrust-the-sky.deviantart.com/ WildArms

          IT IS KILLING ME TOO, I FEEL I AM GETTING IT BUT IM NOT GETTING IT, what it was darn it darn it darn it, DAMN what it was!? shtttttt

          • lidornah

            final destination?

          • http://thrust-the-sky.deviantart.com/ WildArms

            Nice shot but no… I remember it was related to cellphones too -____-!!!

    • http://twitter.com/chronocruise rana-porosa

      It reminds me of the movie “Chakushin Ari” aka One Missed Call.

      In it, the victims receive a phone call (with a creepy-awesome ringtone) dialed from their own cell phone. Anyway, it goes straight to voice mail, so they check their messages and they hear their voice, usually screaming, 5 seconds before they die in the future.

      The first movie is great to watch, mostly because it’s directed by Takashi Miike.

      • https://twitter.com/RaiohV ShinkaRaioh

        Oh, I don’t know that one, but it’s quite similar to what I’m thinking. Might watch it~

  • Sal

    Do I even have to say it anymore?

  • XypherCode

    so bloody….so nice :P

  • RablaAndrews

    Ahh, now I see.

    Tiko has been on the DeSu2′s website entry page for a while now. This explains why.

  • AnimeRemix

    That picture showing him surrounded by blood freaked me out, XD. And yes, Tiko shall be my Nicaea contact. You can always trust them Bunny girls. ::) Lol.

  • http://www.fanfiction.net/u/601368/ Ikari Engeru

    Oooh! Bloody!! :D Can’t wait for it!

  • http://myanimelist.net/profile/Kuronoa Kuronoa

    Tiko for me, it is always nice to see a bunny girl smile while showing me my gruesome death.

    Love the premise.

  • SetzerGabbiani

    Persona 4 x Persona 3 x DeSu = DeSu 2

  • http://twitter.com/spotted_slime L. R.

    I guess someone should have told him the Persona 3 demon summoning method doesn’t work in Devil Survivor.

  • Darkrise

    Bunny girls sending me grave messages. Awesome.

    • cj_iwakura

      Isn’t that Midori?

    • AzureNova

      Now only if I could get this to happen in real life…..

  • Kibbitz

    Not hating this, but just saying that the first image with the bunny girl looked damn freaky to me until I looked at the picture closely.

  • Saraneth

    So, Devil Survivor 2′s version of the Laplace Mail and the Gigolo? Well, you don’t mess with a winning formula (unless they’re going to create a twist at the end).

  • http://chronotwist.deviantart.com/ JustThisOne

    A shining person, eh?

    • AzureNova

      Galactic Pretty Boy style, “May Your Galaxy Shine” XD

  • AzureNova

    Tiko for me please! Bunny bunny bunny bunny bunny bunny! =^_^=

    “Creepy Website In Devil Survivor 2 Has Your Face On It”
    Meh, I actually thought it would be “my face”
    I love those fourth dimension bizarre stuff :3

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Abel-Liegod/100000072534559 Abel Liegod

    Also, hope this new game has awesome character like the first had
    I loved Naoya(no homo) and Yohoo! And Midori of course, and that officer lady, and the emo singer, even that teacher with stoned face ;)

  • Ren

    Tiko and Tycho? Hey,@Spencer:disqus did famitsu actually spell their names differently or it was only you? I can only see Tiko for both both in the screenshots and in the famitsu page and no romanization in sight.
