    Persona Eternal Punishment and Innocent Sin. Those two are one of my FAVORITE ones out of the Shin Megami Tensei series ever.
    The story really broke my heart during the middle and the end. Especially Eternal Punishment too... *sniff* Oh Tatsuya ; n ;

    I can't wait to get the PSP version of Eternal Punishment. I'm currently playing the PS1 version right now.

    Quite a dry spell for news in this franchise, and even though there's some, it's not good news.

    Sorry Europe...


    Again, sorry Europe.

    Protagonist anyone?

    Devil Survivor 2 is getting an anime adaptation made by the same people who did Persona 4: The Animation. It'll start airing in April 2013.

    Also...

    Atlus Japan is teasing another Devil Survivor 2 project, assumed to be the "Overclocked" version of the game by the people. Whatever it is, it'll be revealed in a few days.

    Looks like next year is Devil Survivor 2 Year.

    I was kind of excited until the persona 4 animation team was mentioned. Devil Survivor 2 is probably a little more difficult to do poorly however. and I know I am going to watch the series anyway.

    I just hope they don't end up beating the game with a dead horse like they did with Persona 4.

    This reminds me that I still need to play Devil Survivor 2, I have had the game since it released and still never got around to playing it much.

    Makes me regret getting DS 2, though I'll probably trade it in for the remake if there is one.

    Guess that's another anime for me to think sounds great at first, then to never, ever bother watching because it will probably be awful.

    Do we really need more of these expanded rereleases? I'm getting a little sick of them.

    Leave the theory about selling the DS version to GameStop. I'm really not very upset about this.

    I REEEEEEEEEEEALLY want to see a voiced scene of Airi & Kama.

    I'm glad the Devil Survivor series is getting the same love ATLUS gives to the Persona series. That's the main thing I'm taking out of this and the inevitable DeSu 2 re-release (voices and high res sprites alone will make me double dip).

    EDIT: So, there's two DeSu 2 websites. ds2.atlusnet.jp and ds2-p.atlusnet.jp. I assume that this means that the inevitable DeSu 2 sequel/enhanced port will be called "Devil Survivor 2 P____."

    It also means that this will be the fourth MegaTen game on the 3DS in the span of just 2 years. Three more and the 3DS will be equal to the PS2 in the number of MegaTen games.

    It depends on the system you have. If you have a 3DS, start with Devil Survivor Overclocked, and when it comes out, Megami Tensei IV. If you have a PS2 or PS3, definitely get Persona 4 as it is on of the best SMT games and one of the best RPGs. If you have a PSP, Persona 3 Portable is your best bet. PS Vita? Go with Persona 4 Golden, a remastered edition of Persona 4 with bonus content. If you have a DS, then try Devil Survivor 2.

    Odds are the DeSu 2 remake game will be released for 3DS. If it isn't, then oh well.

    WELL...

    *Opens repertoire*

    If you have a PS2, you're bound to play many SMT titles. You can start out with the Persona series, or start with Nocturne (it has Dante from Devil May Cry in it as a bonus).

    If you have a PSP, you can access almost all Persona games except for Eternal Punishment, & 4 on the Vita.

    If you have a DS, you can play the Devil Survivor series and possibly even try Strange Journey. If you live in America (unless you live in Europe and wishes to wait till February), you can try Devil Survivor: Overclocked (the first 3DS to be fully voiced).

    Really, any option is very good. The sequels can be played and be enjoyed fully without having to play the prequels as they're not really mentioned that much.

    I know that that Persona games aren't, but I'm not sure about about Nocturne, though I highly doubt it's on PSN.

    As far as I know about PSN, no, unless you can somehow order copies online if your PS3 has backward compatibility.

    But your 3DS can play all the games, but they're all hard copies for the moment.

    I'd start with Devil Survivor: Overclocked. Devil Survivor is a great way to introduce yourself to the other 3/DS SMT games (this is where you're gonna have to look if you don't have a PS2 - Persona 3 FES is your only option on the PS3). I'd play the 3/DS games in the following order:

    Devil Survivor: Overclocked ->
    Devil Survivor 2 ->
    Strange Journey ->
    Soul Hackers ->
    Shin Megami Tensei IV

    Are you guys seriously suggesting Persona titles to a newbie?

    Oh boy.

    I'd say just get Overlocked first.

    Wait, what's so bad about suggesting the Persona series?

    Also, I believe I should mention that the SMT games are known for being grind-heavy, so be expected to take part in battles often against some weaker opponents.

    And if I may go off on a slight tangent here, who was disappointed that DeSu 2 removed the Magetite system? I know I was.

    Persona is NOT how people should be introduced into the Shin Megami Tensei series.

    AT ALL.

    Yes they should be introduced through the first NES game. Those unworthy of enjoying the series will quit in frustration. We've got to have standards for who can enjoy SMT games. Otherwise what will separate us from the lowly fans of other JRPGs.


    To address the guy who asked which persona game to try, it depends on your specific genre preferences:

    If you like Dungeon Crawlers, try Strange Journey. (it is in 1st person and pretty tough, but still pretty damn good)

    If you like Strategy RPG's try Devil Survivor Overclocked or 2.

    If you like something that's both a little more traditional and a little more off the wall at the same time there's Persona 3 FES Persona is combination of a traditional RPG with traditional high school life segments. (It works much better than it sounds) You can't control other members of your party in the FES version* however, which may be a sell off for some people.

    *I Persona 3 portable and Persona 4 give you optional control over party members, but they aren't for 3DS or PS3.

    Persona isn't necessarily a bad way to begin your SMT experience. It's just that Persona 3/4 are radically different from other SMT games, and starting with them gives you an inaccurate opinion of what a SMT game should be.

    Devil Survivor is great because it brings together the old and the new. It features a demon apocalypse, COMPs, law vs chaos, as well as Anime archetypal characters like the ones found in Persona 3/4.

    Thank you^

    Now lets patiently await the arrival of the Devil Survivor 2 anime. I hope the animators meet the 3 tics of animation.
    FLUIDITY, IMPACT AND DETAIL!

    Fluidity being how well each animated picture flows in a sequence and if it looks natural and there arent any errors, like for instance in fight scenes.
    Impact meaning choosing each sequence and how the events flow together to present the feeling that the source material presents at every opportune moment
    Detail provides reference to how each individual drawing looks, if the animators took a keen eye to each scene and made sure everything was properly shaped and correctly placed in each individual drawing.

    That is just the animation, if you want to make a great show you gotta have an epic OST and great characters, so lets hope they represent them correctly
