In the year 199X, the world thrown into nuclear war and Tokyo was hit by a missile strike. During the resulting chaos, a horde of demons from Makai managed to launch an invasion of the human world, pretty much conquering it. Cut 35 years later, where various demon lords fight it out for control of Tokyo, and humanity struggles to survive in the ruins of the city and the bomb shelters where they fled years before. In one such bomb shelter, a young man and his friend come across the sealed demon Pazuzu while playing a mysterious game known as "Devil Busters". Pazuzu, claiming to be a servant of God, declares the two as the Messiahs who will save humanity from the demons and grants one with the Demon Summoning Program that will allow him to talk to, and recruit, the demons, and teaches the other magic. Shortly afterwards, however, the bomb shelter is attacked by demons and the two are thrust out into the ruined, demon infested world.

''Digital Devil Story: Megami Tensei II'' is, as the name suggests, the sequel to ''[[VideoGame/MegamiTensei Megami Tensei]]'' for the [[{{NintendoEntertainmentSystem}} Famicom]]. Despite being a direct sequel to the events of the first game, it has little to nothing to do with the original ''Literature/DigitalDevilStory'' plotline, and in fact closer resembles, and likely inspired, the ''Franchise/ShinMegamiTensei'' games that followed it.
