12.10.14 - 12:08 PM

It appears that 'tis the season for long-awaited RPG announcements! It's been a while since Atlus first announced an enhanced 3DS version of the 2011 strategy RPG Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor 2 for the original DS. We now have confirmation that Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor 2 Record Breaker for Nintendo 3DS will be making its way to North America in early 2015.

Devil Survivor 2 Record Breaker will feature new English voices and fully relocalized dialogue. In addition, as we have previously mentioned, there will be a new story episode that takes place after the events of the original Devil Survivor 2's final day, which reportedly will double the game's length.

From Atlus, here is a list of new features to be included in Devil Survivor 2: Record Breaker, as well as a new trailer!

"Tactical Combat with a Side of Demon Fusion -- The elements that make the Devil Survivor series great are back and better than ever with robust, turn-based strategic combat. Since the game is part of the Shin Megami Tensei franchise, fusing demons together to form a stronger army is back as a core mechanic!

Choose Your Own Fate -- The line between life and death is razor-thin in Record Breaker. Actions have their consequences, and in the wake of the apocalypse, a wrong choice can result in the permanent death of a character. Multiple endings present the challenge of making all the right choices at the right time.

Extra Content ATLUS is Known For -- Record Breaker expands on the original Devil Survivor 2 by nearly doubling the amount of storyline for a total of more than 100 hours of strategic game play and consuming plot, with the additional mystery of Miyako Hotsuin to unravel.

New Personalities to Discover -- For the first time, Devil Survivor 2 is getting fully voiced English story dialogue. The voiced dialogue in both the new content and the original story gives added depth in bringing the game's characters to life from ominous beginning to dramatic end.

Enhanced game play -- Record Breaker gives player characters new abilities, and the world is chock full of more demons to fuse."

Devil Survivor 2 Record Breaker will be available in the Americas for $49.99 in early 2015. Specifics such a release date and pre-order bonuses have yet to be determined. You can check out our new gallery for the game here.
