The new Devil Survivor 2 trailer doesn’t show off too many things that seem like real overhauls from the first game, but it appears that, rather than in most Shin Megami Tensei games where the enemies are Demons/Shadows (with mostly the same character designs), the enemies in Devil Survivor 2 are “mysterious invaders” called “Septentrion”, who appear once a day. Looks like you might still be fighting Demons at times, but it’s good to see them going for new enemy designs.
The rest of it seems fairly similar to the original though: same sprite-based dialogue, same strategy RPG gameplay, music not being done by Shoji Meguro, and character designs still done by the guy who made Durarara!!. Still looks cool.
Hit the jump for the full trailer.
