About SMT: Devil Survivor 2
When a new website that shows the manner of people's deaths in advance makes the rounds amongst Japanese high schoolers, a trio of students is shocked to witness their own deaths in a terrible subway accident just minutes away. They narrowly escape the carnage, only to find themselves in a worse situation--facing otherworldly demons. Desperate to survive, they fend off the demons and flee, but the destruction at the station is only the beginning...
What if You Could See People's Deaths Before They Happened? -- The spread of a mysterious website that offers a preview of people's deaths, and the great calamity that suddenly strikes Japan-mere coincidence, or part of something larger? A band of high school students must use the website to avert their own deaths, as well as others', amidst the unprecedented nationwide chaos.
Recruit Your Party, Build Bonds -- Adding tons of dimension to traditional party mechanics, players recruit new members to their team and then invest time into developing relationships with them. The closer the connection, the more effective they'll be in battle. Every party member is mortal and susceptible to death, however, making it essential that every decision be weighed carefully lest they be lost to the user forever.
Collect, Customize, Barter and Fuse Every Last Demon! -- Endlessly addicting, the task of discovering and enlisting new demons to aid you in battle is a staple of the Shin Megami Tensei universe. With nearly twice as many demons to find and unlock as in the original game, there's no shortage of work to be done in assembling and managing an army of demons for battle.
