As a fun tie-in, today is Chie’s birthday in Persona lore, so Atlus is giving her some time in the spotlight. And as is only appropriate, she’s dancing to Carl Douglas’ classic ode to kung fu. To add to the festivities, a second video was released for Backside of the TV (Lotus Juice remix).

A few free, as well as some for-pay, downloadable packs will be hitting Devil Survivor 2 Record Breaker.

The former will be up at launch and allow new players to level easily and bank some macca, as it won’t have scaling difficulty, while the latter will go live on May 12 and feature a recruitable demon that will join the party if it’s saved from two approaching enemy hordes. The for-pay battles run $0.99 each and switch things up by offering different scenarios, such as chasing down demons toting tons of macca. Full details for all are available below.

SMT: Devil Survivor 2 Record Breaker trailer details demon auctions

Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor 2 Record Breaker’s demon auctions are the topic in the latest trailer from Atlus. Players can utilize fusing for acquiring new demons, but their limited number of uses means that new demons will have to be acquired primarily from an eBay-type app on their character’s phone. Demons are rated for their power and skills, and others within the game world will check the same stats and get into bidding wars with the player for the best on offer. Give the trailer a look for a full rundown.
