In Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor 2 players get to choose what the protagonist says and does. You can side with the JPs, Ronaldo, or figure out another way to defeat the mysterious alien invaders. Since the Devil Survivor 2: The Animation is an animated series, the protagonist has a fixed personality.

Now in the middle of an extreme situation, Hibiki is dragged into fighting these mysterious invaders regardless of his intentions, but he will have to make a serious decision soon…
