Although we have somewhat expected it, it is nice to to hear that Sega has confirmed a global launch for its upcoming smartphone RPG Dx2 Shin Megami Tensei: Liberation. To be released on Android and iOS, the game will first be released in Japan, Taiwan, Hong Kong, and Macau. Other regions will be confirmed at a later date.
One other interesting announcement is that the game will boast an augmented reality feature, which lets players summon demons in the real world captured by their smartphone’s camera. Think Pokemon GO but with gods and demons. Doesn’t sound too bad to us. Three five-star rarity demons in the form of Alice, Susanoo, and Baron have been confirmed for the game too.
To recap, as the protagonist, whose gender can be selected, you have the ability to summon demons using your smartphone via the ‘Devil Downloader’ (Dx) app. As a member of the “Liberators,” a secret organization tasked with protecting the world, you are embroiled in a conflict between Dx2 users.
Alongside the video, Sega launched a complementary Dx2 Info companion application for Android, with the iOS version in the pipeline, which will provide users with latest game information, campaign news and videos. There is yet to be a release date for the game, though it is confirmed to be out within 2017.
