Pony Canyon have shared three new trailers for the upcoming Devil Survivor 2 anime series, which is in production at anime studio Bridge. The three videos focus on the protagonist, Hibiki Kuze, and two of his friends—Io Nitta and Daichi Shijima:





The Devil Survivor 2 anime will be aired in Japan this April. The story will be based on the Nintendo DS game of the same name, and developer, Atlus, have teased a new Devil Survivor 2 game project as well.

  • Spirit Macardi

    Hopefully Funimation or another distributor will pick this up.

    • Detrimont

      probably sentai film works (they did P4)

  • Richard N

    I still don’t understand why we couldn’t get an anime for the first Devil Survivor, but I’ll take what I can get. Hope this one will get a stateside release as well.

    • Probably because that ship has already sailed. Atlus sort of threw Devil Survivor: Overclocked out without putting a whole lot of effort or marketing behind it. My guess is they want to actually try and get more out of DS2, which is why they’re making a bigger deal out of it with the anime series and the mysterious new game (which is probably DS2 Overclocked).

      • Richard N

        Hmm, true true. DS2 definitely got a lot more exposure compared to the original. However, I can’t see the Devil Survivor brand becoming that huge, though I do appreciate the effort on Atlus.

        We got a long way to go before we have a Devil Survivor Musical.

        The ship has sailed? They could always do like they are doing with persona 3 and give a Devil Survivor Movie/ or Ova of sorts or short anime.

        • $1484028

          not really a good comparison
          Persona 3/4 did A LOT better (in terms of sales, popularity, everything) than either Devil Survivor did.

          its not hard for Atlus to agree to milking Persona’s popularity.

          Devil Survivor’s a tougher sell (if you’re comparing to Persona 3/4)

          • XYZ_JolteonZ980

            IN a country where even Shining Hearts games get anime that sell poorly, is it hard to imagine Devil Survivor being unable to get an anime?

    • There a manga ver out there if you want.

  • I’m liking our main characters voices. Can’t wait for this to air. So hyped for this. =^_^=

  • Holonboy

    I hope the new project is Devil Survivor 2 Overclocked.

    • Sam Park

      I don’t think DS2 Overclocked is probably not needed as the Canon Ending, the Daichi Route Ended Pretty Well

      • AuraGuyChris

        Your statement doesn’t make sense. The Gin Route is obviously the good one in DeSu 1 yet that didn’t stop the dev team from expanding upon Yuzu’s, Naoya’s, and Amane’s routes. They could also expand upon Yamato’s and Ronaldo’s routes, and possibly even the “false” ending for Daichi’s route.

        • Leonardo Duarte

          Sorry, but the “King Maker” ending sounds much more… Good, in fact, it’s the best outcome possible, whole new world to live.

    • One advice, don’t hype yourself up.

  • YES! It’s Io in SNAKE STYLE!

  • Detrimont

    April can’t come soon enough

  • The variations of used demons seems low. Too bad.
