“Why?”, you ask? Because it’s freaking awesome, that’s why! No, no, there’s a pretty legitimate reason as to why “Durarara!!” characters would appear in “Record Breaker”, we’ll get to that very soon. So there’s a new “Devil Survivor” game on the way and it goes by the name “Record Breaker”.
This “new” game is basically an updated version of the original “Devil Survivor 2” but for the Nintendo 3DS which in and of itself is pretty damn exciting but today the internet has been set ablaze with news that the popular characters Celty Sturluson, Izaya Orihara and my personal favorite Shizuo Heiwajima from the series “Durarara!!” are set to make an appearance in the upcoming game alongside hundreds of demons from the “Shin Megami Tensei” series of which “Record Breaker” is a part of.
Why mention the demons, Frank? Well the picture we’re shown of Celty in-game happens to feature all of her stats which can mean a couple of things: Either these characters are going to be obtainable as demons or fightable as enemies or we’re just being tricked into believing they’re obtainable as demons or fightable as enemies. Either way, whether I’m right or wrong, this is still pretty exciting!
Long-time readers of SnapThirty will know that I’m a huge sucker for crossovers and even though this one is small it is still mighty in my eyes. Now let’s discuss why exactly characters from “Durarara!!” are going to be in a “Shin Megami Tensei” game: Well, much like the upcoming PlayStation Vita game “Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth”, Suzuhito Yasuda is in charge of the character designs for both “Record Breaker” and “Durarara!!”.
This is more than enough of a reason for a crossover but it also leaves me with a question: Does this mean there may be some special cameos in “Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth”? I sure hope so! While there’s been no specific release date set for “Devil Survivor 2: Record Breaker”, we do know for a fact that it will be coming to the West sometime this year.
