Shin Megami Tensei: Liberation Dx2
The new mobile title appeared in the west on iOS and Android phones 24th July , 2018 worldwide. Atlus used this year’s Tokyo Game show to reveal the upcoming roadmap and the future of the game. We were teased with the upcoming chapter 7 (below) and new features.
Firstly, a new AR Feature called “Devil Scanner” will be implemented through an update for a limited time, starting from 18th to 30th September . The update also comes with improvements on GPS and image recognition function. Through the “Devil Scanner”, players can now search and collect (or negotiate as they call it) with demons using the AR functionality.
A new version will be released as part of the anniversary in 2019, called version 2.0. The update comes packed with a story update, starting out Part 2 of the overall story of the game. Taking a cue from other games that have choice playing a major role, the storyline branches out depending on players choice; that being Law, Neutral, and Chaos. A new form of Aura Gate will also be introduced; these 3D dungeons will become vaster and the devs might just throw in some new gameplay elements.
Recently, the Ver. 1.6.0 update is now available. This adds the highly requested Guilds feature, with events and other content being implemented on a regular basis. Soon a new demon archetype will also be implemented, known as the “Jaki”. This will include Black Frost, an evil version of series’ mascot Jack Frost, and many more.
