Atlus found success by branching the Shin Megami Tensei series into other brands like Digital Devil Saga, Devil Summoner, and Persona. Persona 3 was a breakthrough hit in North America. Will Devil Survivor resonate the same level of acclaim?
Devil Survivor was registered as a trademark by Atlus Japan in the summer. It appears to be related to the Megaten series. It might be a spinoff, but in the case of all trademarks it might be nothing – nothing interesting like a new Atlus branded Photo Booth. On second thought a Devil Survivor sticker photo booth would be very interesting however unlikely that is is.
My best guess is this will be a Nintendo DS Shin Megami Tensei game because Devil Summoner can be truncated to DS. Marketing departments love this kind or thing.
