While the 3DS may be the talk of the handheld town, Devil Survivor 2 is actually a Nintendo DS game. Atlus is making Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor Overclocked, an expanded version of the DS game with voice acting, for Nintendo’s newest handheld. That game does not have a specific release date in Japan, but is scheduled to come out this year. Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor Overclocked is slated for a summer release in North America.
