The production company Pony Canyon began streaming the first full promotional video for Devil Survivor 2 The Animation on Saturday.
The anime series will adapt Atlus' Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor 2 Nintendo DS role-playing game. Seiji Kishi (Persona 4 The Animation) is directing the series, and Yoshimichi Hirai is the assistant director at the studio Bridge. Makoto Uezu is in charge of the series scripts, and Kotaro Nakagawa is scoring the music.
The series will premiere in April 2013 on MBS' "Animeism" programming block. The video game is also getting a manga adaptation that launched in Square Enix's Monthly G Fantasy magazine on December 18.
Atlus USA released the original Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor Nintendo DS game in June 2009 in North America, and then released the enhanced port titled Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor Overclocked in August 2011. Atlus released the Devil Survivor 2 video game in Japan in July 2011, and then Atlus USA released the game in North America in February 2012. Suzuhito Yasuda (Durarara!!, Yozakura Quartet) drew the main character designs for all three games. The original Devil Survivor game also inspired a manga adaptation from Satoru Matsuba (WARASIBE) that launched in Kodansha's Monthly Shonen Sirius magazine in May.
