Atlus announced today that it will indeed be bringing Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Summoner 2: Raidou Kuzunoha vs. King Abaddon to North American PlayStation 2s. Can't say we're surprised, just a bit out of breath.
Seriously, that title is long. "The longer the title, the better the game," says the official game announce from Atlus PR, who tells us that the sequel to Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Summoner: Raidou Kuzunoha vs. The Soulless Army will ship in "extremely limited" quantity on May 12th. But what about the preciously plush Raidou?!
"Each and every copy of the game's limited quantity launch will ship with a rare Raiho collectible plushie," according to official word. That's a swell bonus, one that looks to be included in the $39.99 USD purchase price.
Future copies of Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Summoner 2: Raidou Kuzunoha vs. King Abaddon, Atlus warns, will not ship with the adorably sideburned Jack Frost-as-Raidou, should such copies ship post launch.
Atlus stresses that the PlayStation 2 game will be available for "a limited time, and out of an exceptionally small fixed number of units." Scare tactics or simply fair warning? We don't know!
