All Articles: Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor 2 Record Breaker
It’s games we’ve seen before and games that look like games we’ve seen before on today’s Nintendo Download.
Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor 2 Record Breaker is a 3DS remake of the handheld RPG, which was originally released for the DS in 2012. The remake will include a brand new scenario, “Triangulum Arc,” as well as enhanced graphics and new downloadable content.
Also available this week is Mega Man & Bass, the first offering from Capcom as part of their Mega May promotion. Originally released only in Japan for the Super NES, Mega Man & Bass is the ninth entry in the original series. It came to America for the first time in 2003 on the Game Boy Advance, and now that version is available to download through the Wii U eShop.
Finally this week, High Strangeness is available on the Wii U eShop. High Strangeness was the first game project to ever reach its funding goal on Kickstarter and is also billed as the world’s first “12-bit” title. The action RPG is “a deftly blended hybrid of 8 and 16-bit games,” that also includes a talking cat.
More information on all of these games (and a few other new releases) can be found after the break. (more…)
New Releases: SMT Devil Survivor 2 Record Breaker, Project CARS for PC, Wolfenstein: The Old Blood, More
This May is going to be rather underwhelming when it comes to the quantity of new video games. But there doesn’t mean there won’t be plenty of quality sprinkled in from week-to-week.
For example, Atlus will bring Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor 2 Record Breaker to the 3DS this week. Originally released for the DS in 2012, Record Breaker will add a brand new scenario, the “Triangulum Arc,” to the RPG, as well as new difficulty options and improved controls.
Also available this week is the PC edition of Project CARS, Slightly Mad’s ambitious auto racing simulation. In addition to Oculus Rift and 12K UltraHD monitor support, Project CARS will offer dozens of vehicles and over 100 courses. Project CARS will be released for the PS4 and Xbox One next week.
Getting about as far away from the world of simulators as we can is Wolfenstein: The Old Blood. The downloadable prequel to Wolfenstein: The New Order will be released for the PC, PS4, and Xbox One as a standalone game. You can grab this World War II shooter on Tuesday, just a few days ahead of V-E Day.
Finally this week, WB Games and Monolith Productions will release Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor – Game of the Year Edition for the PS4 and Xbox One. This ultimate edition of one of 2014’s best games will include all of the previously downloadable content including both major expansions.
As always, more new releases will be available this week exclusively through the PlayStation Store, Xbox Games Store, Nintendo eShop, and Steam. We’ll keep you updated on those titles as the week goes on.
Atlus has announced that Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor 2 Record Breaker will be released for the 3DS on May 5. Record Breaker is a remake of the original Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor 2, which was released for the DS in 2012. In addition to an enhanced graphical presentation, Record Breaker will include a new chapter, “Triangulum Arc,” which will be available from the start and which Famitsu (via Siliconera) said will be as lengthy as a full RPG.
To give gamers a taste of this new scenario, Atlus has released a new story trailer for Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor 2 Record Breaker, which you can view above.
Shin Megami Tensei Devil Survivor 2: Record Breaker is coming to the 3DS in early 2015, and with it comes almost twice the content of the original Devil Survivor 2. Fans of this strategy RPG will be happy to know that the plot has been expanded, continuing from the original ending, and adding in a new character. You can opt to start the game from this new content, or play it from the beginning. For those of you new to the series, you don’t need to have played the first game.
Shin Megami Tensei Devil Survivor 2: Record Breaker “also includes fully voiced English story dialogue, giving new depth to the cast of Devil Survivor 2’s original story.” Other features include Demon Fusion, multiple endings, and new character abilities.
I would try to describe the game, but I don’t know if I could do it justice: “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.”
Shin Megami Tensei Devil Survivor 2: Record Breaker will be out in early 2015 digitally and physically for the Nintendo 3DS for $49.99.
