The sequel is slated for a summer release and will be launched for the Nintendo 3DS. Role-playing game fans of the series can preorder the title on the official site.

Players control a member of a futuristic samurai group who can control demons using a pair of special gauntlets. The player character is tasked with salvaging a post-apocalyptic Tokyo while figuring out which faction they should align with - Law and Chaos - to determine the fate of the earth.

Atlus has yet to mention if it will be bringing the Shin Megami Tensei special edition 3DS in the region.
