Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor 2 confirmed for North America

Continuing its quest to bring unusual RPGs to the world, the North American arm of developer and publisher Atlus confirmed last week that will be coming westward in 2012.


Curiously, the strategic RPG sequel is being made for the Nintendo DS, rather than the 3DS. Nintendo's new handheld is receiving a revamp of the original Devil Survivor this summer, under the name Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor Overlocked.

According to Atlus manager of PR and sales Aram Jabbari, Devil Survivor 2 boasts "an all new story and cast, an expanded roster of demons to manage, vastly expanded party interaction, an all new soundtrack from composer Kenji Ito (SaGa series), plus a host of refinements and improvements over its predecessor."

Devil Survivor 2 was announced for Japan in March, but at the time there was no word on if it'd be released elsewhere too.
