Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor 2: Record Breaker released today in North America for the Nintendo 3DS, and you can check out the first 90 minutes of the game in the video above. Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor 2: Record Breaker is an exclusive Nintendo 3DS enhanced version of the Nintendo DS title Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor 2, a sequel to the original Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor. Not only is it an enhanced version, but includes a brand new full-length story (the Triangulum Arc) after the original game’s ending (the Septentrione Arc.)
These games are tactical RPGs developed by Atlus– makers of Persona– and follows the story of Japanese high school students who join a pact and are able to summon demons to fight off creatures invading the whole of Japan. You play as a silent, young character whose thoughts and actions you decide through the game and affect the outcome of the plot. This enhanced Nintendo 3DS version expands upon the game by adding the Triangulum Arc set just after the original. It releases in Europe sometime in Autumn this year.

After the much loved Attack on Titan manga and anime series, the game was released in Japan and is now coming to North America. You can find Attack on Titan: Humanity in Chains in the Nintendo 3DS eShop on May 12th. Also, anyone who buys the game will receive a free Attack on Titan Nintendo 3DS Home theme! Unfortunately, Europe still has a delay and an unknown release date as they bumped into some copyright issues, so the game will be known as the Japanese title of ‘Shingeki no Kyojin: Humanity in Chains’ there. You can see some characters that will feature in the game in the video above, and check out the first 45 minute of gameplay to see if you fancy it. Will you be saving the date and buying this game?

Dementium: The Ward is a first-person shooter survival horror game, released on the Nintendo DS in 2007 by Gamecock Media Group and developed by Renegade Kid. However, before they took it to Gamecock, they pitched the idea of a Silent Hill DS game to Konami, as a licensed horror. The pitch didn’t go very well though, Watsham said: “They were kind enough to meet with us, but the meeting only lasted a few minutes and ended with their [representative] saying they wouldn’t let a team like us handle the Silent Hill license.”
They weren’t put off though, and a few years later Renegade Kid approached Konami again with the idea of a Silent Hill DS game, armed with screenshots of a third-person game you can see below. Konami once again said no, saying: “They simply didn’t want to venture into the DS space with a horror title at that time.” Konami have recently cancelled their latest Silent Hills project after Guillermo del Toro left the production. It seems they may have missed a trick refusing a Silent Hill DS game. In the mean time, Renegade Kid are re-releasing Dementium: The Ward as a remastered version for the 3DS. Do you think there should be a Silent Hill title for the 3DS, or would horror simply not work for it?
