Devil Survivor 2 coming soon.

I feel like even the first Devil Survivor game's character designs bore similarities with Durarara in some respects. 
 
Oh, I just looked it up it's probably because the character designer is Suzuhito Yasuda - apparently he did Durarara's character designs in addition to those of Devil Survivor's.

Heck, I don't need fancy Wii-level graphics and swanky 3D effects in my Devil Survivor 2. Bring it on!

I really hope the characters are more likable than the cast of Devil Survivor. I found every character to be pretty lifeless and it ended up making me feel really disconnected from the story.

Well, that's probably because the same guy who did that show did the Devil Survivor art.
 
I don't like it. Wish they'd get some Soejima or Kaneko up in there.

I honestly dont know why people say this, I loved the art in Devil Survivor. Also super pumped that it's on the DS :D

Expect a 3DS port to be announced shortly after the game's initial release. :P

I'm most interested to see if this is an unrelated sequel or if the story from the first game will factor in, and how.  The characters do look pretty Durarara reminiscent- the three main characters even have the same color schemes going on as the DRRR! crew.  Those references in the character designs will probably be as far as the similarities go, but in all honesty DRRR! was for the most part a pretty okay show, and did a good job of mixing weird paranormal crap in with everyday life.  If the story took a cue or two, it wouldn't be a terrible thing.

I know, it's VGK's most anticipated 3DS game.

Really, well he'll be waiting a while, I expect it's going to take an age to arrive in the West : /

Anyway, I see no problem with the character designs in this context. It'd be much better than, say, Aoki Ume's character designs. I can't even picture a Hidamari/Madoka Magica game like this. 'xD

enjoyed the first one a lot, glad there is a DS verison

That helmet looks like a Celty helmet which is kinda weird I guess, haven't seen Durarara. 
 
More importantly though, that girls boobs, they are disproportionate in a ridiculous way.

Woo, hopefully the combat will be better, and glad I still don't need to buy a 3DS!

@EquitasInvictus:  Hey, there is nothing wrong with Aoki Ume's character designs. But I can agree why some people may not like it.
#22 Posted by EquitasInvictus (2035 posts) -
@metalsnakezero I love his desgins, but I mean in terms of games like these, it'd only be likeable for people like us who are familiar. Those unfamiliar would definitely be taken aback.

Personally, it did take me a while to warm up to Ume's characters watching Hidamari Sketch at first.

It will probably reach the west first. DSO doesn't even have a JP release date yet.

Wow!, I never realized that before, I'm surprised that was the US division announcing the game, how weird. 
 
Overclocked must be designed for the Western market first and foremost.

Cool to hear.  Interesting that it'll be on the DS instead of the 3DS, but regardless, I'm interested.
 
And it's sure to be VGK's game of the year.

.....People are expecting a response from me? You're kidding.  Fine, here we go:

Yea, that makes me confident about this game: an early release alongside another game in the series.

Yeah, we need a quote for the back of the box.

The MC pops his collar like no other. 
 
Bummer that Kaneko won't be handling the boss designs though. I hope this game is less... red then it's predecessor

 @Video_Game_King:
Unknown invaders called the "Septentrion" suddenly invade and attack Japan one particular Sunday. From that moment, attacks occur once a day from the invaders.  Each day, a different Septentrion creature is the attacker. A group of 13 demon summoners are charged with defeating the Septentrion within seven days. With sights and sounds by the famed Yasuda Suzuhito and composer Kenji Ito overwhelming the senses, are you ready to survive?
