The opening video for the next installment of the Devil Summoner series has been revealed to the public. Some things we have already seen such as masked men jumping on rooftops, Raidou summoning multiple demons and Narumi being a bonehead.
The video did provide new information, which I was able to investigate further (I’m a gumshoe too!) at the game’s main site. The man with the white hair is in fact a Kuzunoha. His name is Kuzunoha Gaylin the 17th and is also a Devil Summoner. Gaylin has spent some time in America, perhaps explaining his sudden appearance and unusual name.
Another character has appeared named Nagi, she is the girl with long black hair. She is half Russian and is Gaylin’s disciple in the Devil Summoning arts. She is also the 18th member in Gaylin’s lineage. I wonder if she has a connection with Rasputin who appeared in the first game…
The two, along with Raidou, appear in some strange labyrinth. It seems they will work together in the game.
Lastly, there is a scene where the man-with-the-red-mask shows his face for the first time.
Little is known about this man but he sure seems… unstable.
I want to see a Devil Summoner where Nagi is the main character! Do it Atlus! But seriously, I am glad that some new characters are being brought into the story. In the first game, Raidou Kuzunoha Vs. The Soulless Army, it kind of felt like Raidou was on his own. That’s probably because Narumi comically expected him to take care of everything.
