Atlus USA Brings Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor 2 to Nintendo DS

Written on June 10, 2011 by Lulu

Comments Off

Atlus USA had announced at E3 that they will release the Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor on US for Nintendo DS

At the E3 2011 press release. Atlus USA declared that they would bring the Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor 2 to Nintendo DS in 2012. This game is a hybrid RPG/SRPG, with the original game title being famous to RPG fanatics. The sequel follows the story of the first game, but instead of players summoning demons, they have an access to a website that can predict people’s death. So the main character must use it to save others and the world.

The new title also presents a social link like those on Persona 3 and 4, giving gamers access to rewards as they know their friend and party members. Decisions in this game might cost one of your friends or party members’ life. As well as, demon summoning, fusing, auctioning – and just about everything short of demon dating that the series is known for – is also accessible in this second title. As stated by Aram Jabbari, Atlus’ PR and Sales Manager:

“Devil Survivor 2 continues the successful marriage of RPG and strategy RPG gameplay elements introduced in the acclaimed original title. With 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 doesn’t simply deliver more of the same-it delivers more and better, exactly what we believe a good sequel should.”

Nintendo Wii Leads December Sales; Xbox 360 Beats PS3 Thanks to Kinect

Written on January 11, 2011 by Chris Martin

Michael Pacther predicts Nintendo Wii sales have dipped but is still leading the console wars for December. Xbox 360 units have outsold PS3 once again.

According to Wedbush Securities games industry analyst, Michael Pacther, Nintendo Wii has once again dominated the holiday season in the December sales, just before the NPD group reveals their December data. He also predicted that Xbox 360 has had a better run during December than Sony PlayStation 3 (PS3). As to how much? Double, to be exact.

In a preview note, Pacther indicated that Nintendo Wii will lead with 2.6 million units sold. The figure is a 32% dip from its last performance. On the other hand, Xbox will see a 91% boost with 2.5 million units sold, whereas the PS3 sold only 1.2 million.

“We expect strong sales for the Xbox 360 due to Kinect, and we believe that Kinect console bundles sold especially well. PS3 sales should be down, as sales from Move are unlikely to offset difficult comparisons from last September’s price cut,” said Pacther. “Given competition from the other consoles and as disclosed by Nintendo, we think that the Wii had another down month. We expect Nintendo DS hardware sales to also continue to struggle until the introduction of the Nintendo 3DS in March.”

Nintendo DS likes it huge! According to latest statistics, the console brought in sales of 47 million. A good record for the 3DS to topple down.

With a total sale of 47 million units sold, the handheld Nintendo DS achieved the record of being the top-selling video console in the US according to its maker. This data adds to the positivity that must come with the release of the 3DS in Japan next month and to the rest of the world in March.

“When we look back at 2010, we see consumers time and again turning to the value and enjoyment of our products,” Nintendo of America President Reggie Fils-Aime mentioned in a press release.  “When we look ahead to 2011, we see new portable technology and more great Wii games that need to be seen to be believed,” he added.

The DS attained such feat considering it is the one of the few portable gaming devices still available in the market today. But the DS should not be too confident since smartphones post huge threats.
