Last month Atlus announced the first run pre-order bonuses for Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor 2 Record Breaker. With a little less than a month before the release of the game in North America the publisher has released a new video showcasing the game's Demon Auction feature.
For those who've played Shin Megami Tensei IV or Persona Q, you might be used to obtaining demons through battle, but in Devil Survivor 2 the only way to obtain them is through buying and fusing them. The catch is that you can only fuse so many of them before you run out, so what's someone to do? Open up the demon auction app on your in-game smartphone and get a whole new team of them!
Each demon comes with its own ratings, with more stars equalling better stats and skills. There's also some special auctions you can partake in with rare demons available, but watch out as other bidders will try their hardest to outbid you.
In the new post-game content, entitled the "Triangulum" arc, Nicaea is back online and the protagonist and the others will have to confront their own deaths to alter their fates and save the world. This new portion includes around 40 hours of new content including new characters, settings, bosses and more additions.
The Nintendo 3DS version of the game includes fully voiced content for both the original "Sepentrione" arc and the new post-game arc. Atlus also included new StreetPass and SpotPass functionality. Additionally, those who've played the original game can skip straight to the new post-game content if they wish.
Along with the usual soundtrack CD, featuring music from Atlus's renowned composer Shoji Meguro, and collectable outer box included with most of Atlus's first-party releases, Atlus will also be including several decal sheets featuring characters from the game and the logos for the death video website Nicaea and the paramilitary organization JP's.
SMT: Devil Survivor 2 Record Breaker will be released in North America on May 5 at retail and digitally via the Nintendo eShop.
