Dx2 Shin Megami Tensei: Liberation first details, screenshots

Here's what a Sega-developed Shin Megami Tensei looks like.

Sega has released first information and screenshots of Dx2 Shin Megami Tensei: Liberation, its newly announced smartphone game based on the long-running Atlus series.

Get the details below.

■ Prologue

Dx2 Shin Megami Tensei: Liberation

Devil Downloaders. Otherwise known as “Dx2” (D-Two). Those with the power to summon and use demons from a dedicated smartphone app.

“You,” guided by a mysterious man and given his power, become a member of the “Liberators,” a secret organization that protects the world, and together with popular video makers like Megakin, get caught up in a conflict between fellow Dx2 users.

The enemy’s name is “Acolytes.” It is another Dx2 group that acts based on their own philosophy. Those with high “empathy quotients” are obstacles to their objective, and they secretly eliminate them.

On the other side of a society that is seen as peaceful, the malice of its people is quietly spreading, and the battle of the Devil Downloaders is gradually intensifying.
