Devil Survivor 2: The Extra World Brings The Septentrion To Smartphones

By Spencer . March 17, 2013 . 10:48pm

asdasdFollowing in the footsteps of Persona 3 Social and Persona 4: The Card Battle, Index announced a social game based on Devil Survivor 2. The game takes place in the same world where the Septentrion wreck havoc on the world. Players will run into characters from the game and the anime series in Devil Survivor 2: The Extra World.

 

Devil Survivor 2: The Extra World is a card battling game. You form a deck with character, skill, and demon cards. Mobage will start service in early April, but registration starts now. Sign up early and you get an Io Niita card as a bonus.

    Ehh? :< Darn, I was hoping this would be a Nicaea alpha version…

    Ugghhh… You know, there is an awesome way to make the concept work. I mean seriously, there is a huuuuge, awesome way to make this work. Unfortunately, I fear that it won’t work out as to how I muse over it.

    At least, in my musing… In order to do it right, you’d have to:

    1) Create a story that would allow a good breadth of players to feel
    like that they are part of the tale. Not have it as ‘You are the
    survivor of this event’, because god, everyone and their mother are a
    survivor of that incident. (…I don’t think they will handle it that way)
    2) Interface-wise: Allow for the user to upload an image to represent their character
    3) Keep rare monsters away from folks for a while or have events where they can earn it.
    4) Allow PvP, though I imagine that would be the main purpose if they made it a virtual card game type of combat with demons(like this one, it seems)

    In be4 whining begins.

    As I said it again and again, if this gives Atlus $$$ for future game, go ahead. What I’m curious is the “the anime series” line…. Does this mean the anime will have new characters?

    • AkuLord3

      Well there be whining? because they already revealed DeSu 2 Break Code for 3DS…ok there will be people just to whine but not too much since we’re already getting another game on Handheld

    Are her bossoms…. Perking up???

    Was this game very successful? There seems to be quite a bit of support getting thrown at it. An anime, a remake, a social game. I’m just wondering if this is a case of a franchise expanding because it sold well, or a case of marketing blitzing to try and expand a franchise.

    • komiko12

      Don’t ask for facts, but I have a feeling it’s the latter. It would be good if Atlus/Index gains more popular series so that they can’t keep on depending on the same games.

      The latter. The Devil Survivor games have done okay for what they are, but haven’t really been “popular” so far.

        I think this is such an exciting time to be a fan of Atlus products! This Index Holdings buyout has led to so much support for their software. Atlus games have always held to a certain level of quality, but quality isn’t enough to be a market success. With the big campaigns surrounding Devil Survivor 2, Persona 4, and SMT IV I feel like there’s a real chance of Atlus finding commercial success now without changing what makes them great.

        Honestly though, it kind of makes me wish some of my favorite Atlus products were coming out now instead of when they did. What if Radiant Historia had had a significant marketing budget? What if the GBA SMT I and II remakes could have been localized to promote SMT 3? What if, and this would be the absolute greatest, we could have gotten a Digital Devil Saga TV show? I’m not an anime guy, but if they actually went all in for an R rated retelling of that I would go for it.

  • Alicemagic

    God forbid Atlus gains some money from a game you’re not going to play anyway.

  • Salvador’ Spinoso

    This means there will be no Break Code? I’m fine with this game as long as they make Break Code. Card Battlers based on games are nothing new in japan anyway
