Devil Survivor 2 Trailer Shows Japan In Ruins And A Dreadful Fate For The Leads

By Spencer . June 28, 2011 . 3:09am

Nicaea is a key element in Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor 2. This website delivers dead faces and shows the gruesome deaths of friends… and the main character. The protagonist, Io, and Daichi see the subway accident scene from this trailer on their phones.



Somehow the trio survives and by using Nicaea, you have the power to save other characters from dying. A second trailer outlines the various systems in Devil Survivor 2 like the hammer auctions and extra turn battle system which return from the previous title.



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

  • Can’t wait till this comes out in NA. I’ll be re-playing SMT:DS and SMT: SJ to keep me occupied till then.

    • Haha, I was just thinking the same thing. This game looks better and better the more I see of it, so I’ll just have to feed my excitement with the other SMT games (again!).

  • Alice <3

    Hmm, from what it looks like the cutscenes in the game are going to be more detailed which is awesome, even if they are just still-frame shots.

  • lol, “a dead face delivery site”

    Cool name. Seriously.

  • AnimeRemix

    I can’t wait for this game!!! And the official box art for Devil Survivor 2 is amazing! Glad they’re keeping in the hammer auctions, extra turn battle system, and even the Fusion system! Can’t wait to pre-order this game! ><

    It would be really cool if you faced off against the main character from the first one as a secret boss.

    • Make him Demi-fiend tier too.  I won’t be able to defeat the bosses, but what a sight to see exist.

    • I wouldn’t be surprised if something like that happened. I do expect some of the older characters to show up, and I think a secret boss would be awesome. And relevant, if you consider some of the endings.

  • They really are focusing on who will you choose to fight with :D, awesome, i hope the stories of each character is awesome!!!

    Sexy quote from the video!~ “To live is to continue to choose” Reminds me to another one i saw in the P3P opening “To love is to lose whatever has not been choosen”

    Assuming that’s in-game music, it seems that the quality is higher than the first game’s music. Hopefully, they did more than 7-ish tracks this time, too.

  • XypherCode

    what did she say at the ending? lol

    can’t wait to play it! xD

    • Barrylocke89

      It sounded like “HAVE A NICE TIIIIIIME!!” to me.

      • AzureNova

        Yes that is what she said, and the character design was done by the same artist who did the characters for the anime Durarara.

  • Those aliens remind me of angels from NG Evangelion

  • Great, images of tower’s being knocked over. This had better not delay the release.

  • SetzerGabbiani

    So basically they took themes from Final Destination and made it fit within the scope of a Megami Ibunroku.

    • Historiata

      Why is having such ideas wrong?

    • Except Death doesn’t come around and try to pick everyone off. It’s more of a casual determinism thing; you can choose to save someone, but it will have it’s own set of direct results.

  • xflame10

    devil survivor overclocked 2 anybody?

    • PrinceHeir

      oh yes please :P

      will wait for that version but yeah it’s gonna be an awesome game ^^

  • Convel

    For some reason all I can see at the 0:58 mark were four pairs of boo……

  • I’ll be hella surprised if the plot of this game beats the one in the first, but still it’s looking promising.
    Atlus always makin me proud of being a rpg freak :D
