Retail and other game-related listings such as the GameFly rental service can be rather devilish
in regards to unveiling upcoming titles. At times, they'll accidentally let word of a new game slip out without ever knowing they've done so. We have something called "unwitting database maintenance" to thank for that.
In this case of secrecy screw-ups, GameFly divulges
that Atlus plans to release a localized Devil Summoner 2: Raidou Kuzunoha versus King Abaddon for PS2 sometime in mid-May. Atlus recently teased
a new Shin Megami Tensei
title, one that seems likely to be the same as the GF listing. If these suspicions hold true, expect a return to devil summoning real soon.Update:
Minutes after this post went live, Atlus confirmed Devil Summoner 2: Raidou Kuzunoha vs. King Abaddon
, stating, "The longer the title, the better the game." Every first-press copy will include a free Raiho plushie, but the general release will be "extremely limited in quantity." The game is expected to ship May 12, 2009 with an MSRP of $39.99.
