- Tactical Combat with a Side of Demon Fusion - The elements that make the Devil Survivor series great are back and better than ever with robust, turn-based strategic combat. Since the game is part of the Shin Megami Tensei franchise, fusing demons together to form a stronger army is back as a core mechanic!
- Choose Your Own Fate - The line between life and death is razor-thin. Actions have their consequences, and in the wake of the apocalypse, a wrong choice can result in the permanent death of a character. Multiple endings present the challenge of making all the right choices at the right time
- New Personalities to Discover - For the first time, Devil Survivor 2 is getting fully voiced English story dialogue. The voiced dialogue and English text in both the new content and the original story gives added depth in bringing the game’s characters to life from ominous beginning to dramatic end
While receiving positive reception from Gamers and critics alike, the original Devil Survivor 2 for the Nintendo DS alienated some with it's high level of difficulty and lack of innovation in the tactical RPG genre. With Devil Survivor 2: Break Record, Atlus has enhanced the title, with extra features including voice acting for most if not all dialogue, a new female character, and an extra scenario which can be considered as a standalone RPG in itself!
Set within a story of a group of Japanese high school students who enter a pact which enable them to summon demons, common to the Shin Megami Series, this group must fight mysterious creatures and prevent the destruction of Japan.
Gameplay revolves around a 3v3 battle phase, and battle is presented as first person traditional turn based; players will be controlling one character and 2 summoned demons. Just like Persona, the "Extra Turn" mechanic is a huge factor in success, as being able to chain up attacks by exploiting the weaknesses of enemies becomes a huge strategy. As well, players can steal enemies skills.
Outside of battle, the story unfolds differently depending on the player's actions and interactions with other characters throughout the game as they explore the country, with the result being multiple branching endings. Your interactions with the other demon users will create close bonds with them allowing you to befriend characters as well as experience conflict between them; this is called the "Fate System."
With the new content, is the game is split into two scenarios, both accessible from the beginning. The first one is the "Septentrione Arc" which us the scenario from the original title; the "Triangulum Arc" continues immediately and cumulates the experience with brand new cut scenes and even characters!
As well, for Devil Survivor 2 aficionados, Break Record comes in two difficulties that players can select between: the casual "Gospel" difficulty or the standard "Apocalypse" difficulty.

version mejorada y con voces del juego de ds recomendado
Fun, engaging content
The game is pretty good by itself and it is nice improvement over previous game.
But the problem with this updated edition is that updates are relatively not so significant comparing to original game.
The additional story is kinda rushed a bit, but still good.
Overall the game is must have for anyone who haven't has opportunity to play original DS game
Decent Story in this sequel
Just That, OST, Stickers and Game, all its perfect
