One ordinary Sunday TwentyMinutesIntoTheFuture, [[HelloInsertNameHere a]] [[OrdinaryHighSchoolStudent high school senior]] and [[ThreeAmigos two classmates]] are heading home after a mock exam. All at once, they each receive a phone message from [[MurderDotCom Nic]][[MeaningfulName aea]], a "dead face delivery site" ([[ObviousBeta in beta]]). The attached video shows a subway accident killing all three of them.

And then an earthquake hits, derailing the oncoming subway car.

In the moment before the train hits them, Nicaea offers the students [[DealWithTheDevil a chance to change their fate by becoming demon tamers]]. They agree, and after being saved by (and subduing) demons that appear from their phones, the trio return to the streets of Tokyo... which is under attack by [[EldritchAbomination extraterrestrial invaders]] called the [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything Septentriones]], with a new invader arriving each day of the week. Opposing the aliens is JP's, ([[GovernmentAgencyOfFiction Japan Meteorological Agency, Prescribed Geomagnetism Research Department]]), whose charismatic leader enlists their aid but also [[GovernmentConspiracy knows more about what's really going on than he should]].

Devil Survivor 2 adds more demons to the roster and their type-specific "racial skills" have a more powerful second tier. Similar to the Social Link system in ''VideoGame/{{Persona 3}}'' and ''VideoGame/{{Persona 4}}'', the new [[LevelUpAtIntimacy5 Fate relationship]] system grants your allies bonuses and unlocks new demons as you socialize with and learn about them.

In 2013 Devil Survivor 2 received an [[http://ds2a.jp/ animated adaptation]]. It has its own page, [[Anime/DevilSurvivor2TheAnimation found here]].

[[UpdatedRerelease Devil Survivor 2: Record Breaker]] is an enhanced 3DS port of [[FanNickname DeSu2]]. In addition to a complete voiceover of the original game, it adds a new story arc where Earth is instead threatened by the Triangulum, a new cast member named Miyako Hotsuin, and [[NoExportForYou (Japan only)]] a crossover where ''{{LightNovel/Durarara}}'' characters cameo as demons.

Compare and contrast ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion''. No, really: Teenagers fight off {{Eldritch Abomination}}s, on behalf of a secret government organization that's led by a cruel genius with a hidden agenda.

''Devil Survivor 2'' is the sequel to the ''Franchise/ShinMegamiTensei'' {{spinoff}} game ''VideoGame/DevilSurvivor'', developed by {{Atlus}}. It was released in Japan on July 2011 and in North America on February 28, 2012.

One ordinary Sunday TwentyMinutesIntoTheFuture, [[HelloInsertNameHere a]] [[OrdinaryHighSchoolStudent high school senior]] and [[ThreeAmigos two of his classmates]] are headed back home after a mock exam session. But their trip home takes a grim turn when they each receive a email on their phones from [[MurderDotCom Nic]][[MeaningfulName aea]], a "dead face delivery site" ([[ObviousBeta in beta]]) supposedly able to show the user a photo depicting the death of any person typed into its search engine; however, it is dismissed as a hoax due to the inscrutable quality of the results.

The email contains a high-quality video of a subway accident that kills all three of them.

To avoid their fate, the three friends forge [[DealWithTheDevil demon contracts]] to become three of the thirteen Devil Messengers, gaining the power to bind and summon demons. However, soon afterwards [[TokyoIsTheCenterOfTheUniverse Japan is besieged]] by [[EldritchAbomination extraterrestrial invaders]] called the [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything Septentriones]], with a new invader arriving on each day of the week. As Devil Messengers, the trio have seven days to defeat all [[GeniusBonus seven Septentriones]] while using Nicaea to avoid their own deaths and prevent the deaths of the other ten Devil Messengers. Aiding them is the JP's ([[GovernmentAgencyOfFiction Japan Meteorological Agency, Prescribed Geomagnetism Research Department]]), a government organization who lead the attacks against the Septentriones yet seem to have [[GovernmentConspiracy their own hidden agenda]] regarding the unfolding events.

New features include upgradeable racial skills, and a [[LevelUpAtIntimacy5 relationship]] system (similar to the Social Link system in ''VideoGame/{{Persona 3}}'' and ''VideoGame/{{Persona 4}}'') that allows you to bond with the other characters.

Does this storyline and artistry seem familiar to you? Work on the Septentriones' story and art is done by none other that MohiroKitoh!
