The Devil Survivor franchise has been an interesting deviation from the norm for the Shin Megami Tensei franchise. In terms of tone and style, it exists somewhere between the traditional SMT titles and Persona. They're both about teens in modern Japan and the oncoming apocalypse, and the result gives it a distinctive feel. Toss in the strategy-RPG gameplay, and Devil Survivor stands out from its brethren much more than other spin-offs like Digital Devil Saga or Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey. Perhaps that is why both Devil Survivor titles were tapped for 3DS ports. The original Devil Survivor: Overclocked came out near the start of the system's life cycle. Devil Survivor 2: Record Breaker has been a long time coming, but it's finally here, and it is almost exactly what Devil Survivor 2 fans have been expecting.
