I hope you’ve all been enjoying the PSN release of Digital Devil Saga. I know that many of you have been asking if the sequel, Digital Devil Saga 2, will also be coming to PSN, allowing you to continue the storyline.
Well, I’m pleased to report that it was confirmed to me earlier today that we’ll be releasing Digital Devil Saga 2 on PSN this Wednesday, priced at £6.49. What that means is that you’ll be able to continue your game of Digital Devil Saga as soon as you finish the first game! :)
Unlike the first game in the series, Digital Devil Saga 2 was actually released shortly after I joined Ghostlight, although, like with the original game, I never actually worked on it as it was more or less completed before I joined.
The DDS2 storyline is a continuation of the first game, so if you’re not sure which one to go for I would recommend starting with the first game. Those of you who did play the first game should enjoy the same dark plot and the revelations contained in the sequel.
In terms of game play Digital Devil Saga 2 takes many of the best features of the first game, including retaining the excellent “Press Turn” battle system of the prequel and of course the game still features the great storytelling and artwork you’d expect from an Atlus game :). Some new features do make it into the game, including the Karma Ring system, which allows you to increase your characters stats by equipping the ring with gems. There’s also the new Berserk form, a limited transformation where only part of a character’s body is changed.
When it was released back in 2007 Digital Devil Saga was an immediate hit with the press. RPG fan gave it 99% calling it “Easily the finest game I’ve had a chance to play this year and stand’s to be one of the greatest games of this generation.” Meanwhile Eurogamer.net gave it 9/10 saying “Digital Devil Saga 2 is everything an excellent sequel should be.”
