E3 2011: Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor 2 Coming to North America in 2012

Atlus have announced that Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor 2 will be available in North America in 2012 for Nintendo DS. They currently have some character art and some fancy spinning gears as a placeholder for the Official Website.

Devil Survivor 2 follows a group of high school students who decide to check out a creepy website that predicts the death of others, only to find that they are going to meet their ends as well. Confusion leads to chaos and our unlikely protagonists are tied up in battle to save their own lives and the country from a mysterious force.

The strategy RPG brings back all the good stuff from Devil Survivor, including the Devil auction and the facility to fuse demons to make stronger ones with unique abilities. New features to the series are bonds, where you can recruit characters and build relationships; after all you need to trust each other in order to survive.

I enjoyed the first one (and I hope that someone is looking to bring Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor Overclocked to PAL regions) and I will definitely be looking to import this when it is available, will you be looking forward to this?
