Atlus’ Parent Company Files Trademark For Deviliser

By Ishaan . November 23, 2013 . 2:00pm

Index, Atlus’ parent company (now a part of Sega), have filed a trademark for something called “Deviliser” in Japan.


What exactly is Deviliser? Your guess is as good as ours, but judging solely by the name, it sounds like something related to—or inspired by—Shin Megami Tensei.


We’ll have more information on Deviliser as it’s made available.

  • The plot thickens.

  • ragingmerifes

    Digital Deviliser Saga

    • Digital Deviliser Sega.

      • Renaldi Saputra

        lol, because of SegAtlus

        • SegAtlus Sanshiro lives!

  • Rune

    “Devil Risers” are the COMP gun-like devices that were used in the Devil Children series, kinda sounds more of a contraction of that… hrm…

    • Audie Bakerson

      A quick Google check says that “デビライザー” (EXACTLY like the trademark) is how it is in Japanese.

      I guess this is related to Devil Children/Demi Kids somehow. That’s one sub-series I NEVER thought they would revive.

      • InfectedAI

        Well, it did recently hit the Virtual Console in Japan.

      • Azzrem

        i thought of that too! wohoooooooooo :D

      • Laer_HeiSeiRyuu

        Perhaps they intend to go the 5th Level Black and Red Route & Youkai Watch it.

        The success of Pokemon will certainly help it too
        Will help them feed into the regular SMT series too

        Oh wait it has to be a 3DS game first

        3DS games need miiverse communities

    • icecoffemix

      Ooh, looks like 3DS game candidate.

    • Hound

      Ishaan could have easily looked this up and noticed that it’s the Japanese name for Devil Riser right away >.>

      Either way, it’s good news. Some of the character designs and original work for Devil Children was full of potential. Now that they’re partnered with Sega, maybe we’ll be lucky and they’ll try to give devil children its own niche (under a new name) and not advertise it as if it were another series that’s trying to emulating Pokemon. (its anime even replaced the time slot for Monster Rancher back in the day >.>)

  • Sentsuizan_93

    So a reveal and a trademark in one weekend? Ohhh boy…..

  • Kaetsu

    Sounds very Cyberpunk. All I think of is Digital Devil Saga but it could be something completely different/new.

  • TheGioG

    Shin Megami Tensei Devil Summoner: Raidou Kuzunoha vs. Mysterious Future Trademarks

    • Shinigami__san

      Damn, i want my post apocalyptic Devil Summoner: Raidou Kuzunoha the LVIII vs Cyberpuck demons

      whit Akarana Corridor and alot of mindfuck

    • new_tradition

      I would love a third Raidou game PERIOD

    • Juan Andrés Valencia

      I would love a Shin Megami Tensei with a title so long that it makes the game looks short.

    • SuperSailorV

      Shin Megami Tensei Devil Summoner: Raidou Kuzunoha vs. Mysterious Future: Lightning Returns

  • Unknown

    man i wish when companies filed trademarks they showed what platform it corresponds with… but shit doesn’t work like that sadly…

  • Rogerrmark

    More spins,pleaaaase.Megaten spins are so good :D

  • Strain42

    I mean I try not to assume that everything Atlus does is related to Shin Megami Tensei but…with a name like this I gotta admit it’s hard not to. I’d love to see a new series. Especially since our last new series was Devil Survivor and those were awesome.

    • InfectedAI

      Yeah, a new series could be interesting. I love DS and can’t wait for Break Record. Hopefully eventually we’ll get Devil Survivor 3(D) on the 3DS and it takes full advantage of the hardware.

  • lostforeverinspace

    Am i the only one whos thinking about it being Demikids?I hope so i loved the it

    • Strain42

      Oh I would love to see a new DemiKids game. I’m still bummed we never got the sequels to Light and Dark localized.

      I actually think the best place for Devil Children to go right now would be a game kinda like Pokemon Colosseum.

      • Renaldi Saputra

        Light and Dark didn’t have sequel, instead, we didn’t get the prequel.. the Red and Black book

        • Strain42

          Yes they did. The sequels to DemiKids Light and Dark (Devil Children: Book of Fire and Book of Ice) came out for the GBA in 2003. It was a direct sequel, even featured the same characters. They were never localized, though I do remember hearing someone online was translating them. Dunno if that’s still happening.

          • Strain42

            There was also another GBA sequel called Messiah Riser that featured the same characters, but from what I heard that was an RTS game…dunno how I woulda felt about that one.

          • Renaldi Saputra

            oh well I haven’t heard of that.. the thing I knew were only the PS1 & GBC game: Red and Black book, and GBA game: Light & Dark a.k.a. Demikids

          • Strain42

            Yeah, I’m guessing they weren’t all that popular. Probably explains why we didn’t get them. It still would’ve been nice though.

          • Renaldi Saputra

            yeah, they didn’t got popular in the west bcos of “pokemon rip-off” bashing

          • Strain42

            Possibly. But to be fair, I know MegaTen came long before Pokemon, but Devil Children didn’t exist until long after that success came. It wouldn’t surprise me to think that Atlus may have wanted to catch some of that Pokemon Popularity by introducing a MegaTen series aimed more at a younger audience.

          • Renaldi Saputra

            yeah MegaTen existed long before pokemon in 1988, and it’s also what inspired pokemon in making its concept..
            sadly, many ppl didn’t know about that, thinking pokemon was the first and another things like pokemon are just rip off..

            I heard Devil Children had anime series, I only found the Red/Black with no sub and have no access for Light/Dark series

    • Azzrem

      you’re not the only one.. :)

    • Renaldi Saputra

      devilizer is a device to capture devil in Devil Children.. so, yeah

  • Kuroxis

    Hmm… sounds cool.

  • Suffix “-iser” means “to cause or to become”.
    Probably means humans are going to be turned into demons.
    Of course we had Digital Devil Saga, but probably means permanent transformations.

    • Warboss Aohd

      …….or a new Digital Devil Saga.

  • nathaniel

    index is still around? i thought the reason atlus got sold to sega was because they were bankrupt

    • DesmaX

      The whole Index was brough

  • dahuuuundge

    Devil Children sequel!?

  • Just so everyone’s clear, the name should be pronounced like “lizard,” not “riser.” That’s the nice thing about having katakana to work with. “Deh-vih-lih-zer.”

    • The katakana in the trademark lists both pronunciations – “lai” and “lih”.

      • Oh, bluh. I only saw the cut-off version of the picture on the main page.

        Odd that they’d cover two different pronunciations for the same romaji, though.

    • Renaldi Saputra

      “lizard” in japanese is ”リザード”
      just like Charizard’s japanese name is spelled “lizardon”

  • LightZero

    I hope it is a new spin-off that isn’t a smart phone game. Atlus only has SMT, Persona, Devil Summoner, and Devil Survivor for megaten titles. Personally I’m waiting for a new Devil Summoner and Devil Survivor 3. While I enjoy Raidou, I would like a game that is set in 2014+ that acts as the sequel to Soul Hackers chronologically. I would like cyber punk theme return.

    • Strain42

      Well I mean technically there’s also Megami Tensei, Majin Tensei, Last Bible, Devil Children, and Digital Devil Saga. Atlus just hasn’t really been doing anything with them. (the last of which I don’t think they’ll expand on story wise, but I would LOVE to see another game in that same style of gameplay)

      But yeah, a new series would be welcomed.

    • Renaldi Saputra

      it’s exactly Devil Children, trust me

  • Renaldi Saputra

    Devilizer = Shin Megami Tensei Devil Children.. nuff said
    believe me

    this pict

  • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

    I guess this would be a great move.^_^ Considering how Pokemon is doing really well currently and SMT4 actually becoming the best selling SMT series, following the market with an Devil Children IP would be the best moves to capitalize on both market here.^_^

    Now, Bamco and Tecmo. where is Monster Rancher and DigimonT_T

    • Renaldi Saputra

      I hope for Monster Farm/Racher remake from Tecmo

  • Devil + Fertiliser = Deviliser: A Means of Growing Eco-friendly Demons for a Brighter Future.

    Probably their own spin on Harvest Moon?

    • Renaldi Saputra

      it’s Devil Children..

  • Randgriz

    one more hour…

  • Herlo Rerelo

    Card Game for iOS i say…

  • Aristides

    New SMT game for 3DS, what happened with Devil Survivor 2 3DS though?

  • Mini

    I had thought the amount of Devil Children love was getting suspicious – the manga got a rerelease, Black/Red got a Virtual Console release… now this? Maybe I can hope for some new material!

  • SetzerGabbiani

    Devil Survivor 3 is my guess.

  • Akemi Nakajima

    Hmm, could this be related to the unannounced SMT game on psvita?
