SMT: Devil Survivor 2 Record Breaker - Box Art

If there is one time honored tradition that the Shin Megami Tensei series is known for, it’s that to recruit new demons to your team, you have to negotiate with them in battle and convince them to join you. Demon negotiation has been a part of the series since the very first Megami Tensei game.

Of course, as I noted in my review of the first game, the Devil Survivor series is a rebel that doesn’t play by the rules. In the Devil Survivor games, you recruit more demons to your team by buying them in an auction minigame. A process which Atlus has decided to show off in their latest gameplay video for the upcoming Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor 2 Record Breaker:

Aside from a nifty new UI, the auction seems to a have a few new features since the first Devil Survivor game. Apparently now you might occasionally find special demons for auction. Not only that, but it looks like some demons will (in time-honored series tradition) request extra bribes on top of the initial joining cost before they’ll join your team.

So, how do you feel about this video? Let us know in the comments!
