NIS America, perhaps ironically, has announced the European release dates for Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor 2: Record Breaker and Etrian Mystery Dungeon. Etrian launches for the 3DS on September 1, with Record Breaker set for October 30; both titles will launch digitally and with retail copies.
Atlus has elaborated on the use of StreetPass and SpotPass in Devil Survivor 2: Record Breaker. StreetPass will allow players to pass skills and stat bonuses to each others’ demons, with both the demon and the passed bonuses chosen at random. SpotPass will deliver additional content after launch, such as entirely new demons and abilities.
Record Breaker hits the 3DS in North America on May 5.
Atlus has revealed that Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor 2: Record Breaker will include characters from Durarara as party members, available for a limited time via StreetPass. The Japanese windows for each distribution are as follows: Izaya Orihara, January 29 to February 4; Shizuo Heiwajima, February 5 to February 11; and Headless Rider Celty, February 12 to February 18.
Record Breaker is planned for a January 29 release in Japan, and will launch in North America this spring.
Atlus has revealed that Shin Megami Tensei Devil Survivor 2: Break Record is coming to the 3DS in North America. Resubtitled as Record Breaker, the game is an enhanced version of the 2011 Devil Survivor 2 for the DS, adding full English voices and localization, and a new postgame episode.
Shin Megami Tensei Devil Survivor 2: Record Breaker launches at retail and via eShop in early 2015, priced at $49.99.
Atlus has released a set of mini-trailers for Devil Survivor 2: Break Record, introducing the protagonist and his pals Io and Daichi. The videos are in Japanese only at this time, but feel free to check them out at the provided Youtube links.
The company also announced that the game would include a newly created after story that follows the original Devil Survivor 2, and that difficulty modes have been added: “Gospel” being easy, and “Apocalypse” being the default difficulty level.
Friendly reminder: Break Record launches in Japan on January 25.
At its Tokyo Game Show stage event today, Atlus announced that Devil Survivor 2: Break Record will launch on January 29, 2015 for the 3DS. This came at the end of a new trailer for the title, which you can see for yourselve over on YouTube.
Devil Survivor 2: Break Record reportedly will not make its planned fall 2013 release window. Atlus announced that the 3DS port/update has been pushed back to 2014, stating that the move would allow for further improvements to the game.
Citing “challenges faced in the current retail sector”, Devil Survivor 2‘s UK publisher Ghostlight has reached out to players with an unusual request. To ensure the title gets manufactured, the publisher is asking for 1800 or more preorders, available through the company’s online store. If this goal is reached, the title will be out in September, though all preorders will be refunded if it fails.
Publisher/developer Atlus announced that Devil Survivor 2: Break Record unfortunately not make its planned July 11 release date in Japan. Claiming concerns over quality, the company indicated that the game would instead be released in the fall of this year, though an exact date was not given.
As long as we’re talking Shin Megami Tensei subseries, Devil Survivor 2: Break Record will launch in Japan on July 11.
With the 3DS remake of Devil Survivor to reach Europe by the end of March, publisher Ghostlight responded to inquiries about the sequel, Devil Survivor 2, which hit North America back in 2012. Apparently, a European verison of DS2 is complete and approved by Nintendo, but the company is reluctant to release it due to DS titles being phased out of retail. “Without going into too much detail, retail support for DS titles is understandably low at the moment making it difficult for us to release the title,” the publisher said.
They are currently exploring an online release through their own storefront, though this would require “your full support in making this release happen.” The extent of that support was not made clear at this time.
Title’s got the gist of it. The 3DS remake of Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor will hit European retailers this April, to be priced at £34.99.
Amidst a sneak peek of the Devil Survivor 2 anime, it was revealed that the game will see a 3DS port subtitled Devil Survivor 2: Break Code. No release period was specified, though more details will be featured in the March 28 issue of Famitsu.
