Fans of Shin Megami Tensei may not be finished with last month's release of Persona 4 and its 60-hour-plus quest, but they've already got another installment in the long-running franchise to look forward to. Atlus USA today announced that it will bring Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Summoner 2: Raidou Kuzunoha vs. King Abaddon to the PlayStation 2 in North America.

It's either a Raiho plushie or a vampire cop antenna ball.

Set for release on May 12, the game follows up on the original 2006 Devil Summoner, where the featured conflict was Raidou Kuzunoha vs. the Soulless Army. This time out, Raidou will look to thwart King Abaddon's plans for a demon-infested Tokyo of the 1920s. Demons aren't all bad, though, as players will be able to negotiate with and win the assistance of more than 200 throughout the game, mixing and matching them to breed more powerful entities and commanding their actions in combat situations two at a time.

If those demon dealings aren't enough enticement, every launch copy of the game will be individually numbered and come bundled with a free plush doll of the game's Raiho character. The game-and-goodie combo will sell for $39.99 when it launches May 12.
