Atlus Reveals Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor 2 Record Breaker

Atlus looks to continue its dedicated support for the Nintendo 3DS, as it revealed earlier this week that its next 3DS release is coming in early 2015.

The game in question happens to be Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor 2 Record Breaker, which is a re-make of the Nintendo DS game Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor. Atlus promises almost twice as much story-related content and gameplay in this remastered version for the 3DS.

The Record Breaker subtitle specifically refers to the added portion of the game, which can apparently be played without needing to play through the same content.

From an official press release:

The world of Record Breaker is on the brink of non-existence. Just before the heralding of the apocalypse, when life was normal, some thrill-seekers were registering on a website that promised to deliver fake videos of their friends being killed. As people wondered what these videos could mean, an invasion began and humanity was forced to face a struggle to survive in an unprecedented catastrophe. For the main character and his friends, they stand up for humanity when the very same website uploads an application on their cell phones, summoning demons. From there, newly minted demon tamers begin the fight to survive and save the future of mankind, but the protagonist’s decisions aren’t without consequences. What he chooses may save the lives of his friends, or seal their fate.

For those who played the original Devil Survivor 2, the new plot expands the story by continuing the game from the ending of the original game. This continuation introduces a new character to the game, Miyako Hotsuin, but her origins are deeply shrouded in mystery. Record Breaker gives players the option of either skipping to the new content right away or playing through the original game first, suiting the needs for all experience levels.

The updated version also includes fully-voiced English dialogue, for those who aren’t savvy with Japanese.
