While everyone else was dancing on stage like idiots, staring at blurry 3D gameplay footage, and having Mr. Caffeine shout about how awesome Ubisoft is, Atlus USA quietly announced via their newsletter two new games they would be releasing. The first is Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor 2, sequel to the 2009 strategy RPG. The story revolves around a group of teenagers who find a website that is supposed to show people’s deaths. When they look at it, they’re shocked to see their own deaths on screen. The group must use what they see on the website to prevent their own deaths, and save the lives of others. Atlus USA will be releasing the game on the Nintendo DS in 2012.
The other game Atlus announced is King of Fighters XIII. This is the latest in what is clearly a long line of fighting games, and that’s about all the newsletter says about it, aside from a few snippets about the gameplay. The game will be released on both the XBox 360 and PS3 this coming Holiday season.
