    Am I the only one waiting for that game? I think I'll be on it all summer long!

    I hate when people use abbreviations without any explanation of what they stand for.
    Super Man Tongue: DS?
    Silly Miss Touchface: DS?
    Sarah Makes Tinkle: DS?

    I have no idea what you're talking about.

    Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor

    A SRPG grid movement type but has Turn-based battles... there are demons obviously. Its part of the Shin Megami Tensei franchise.

    Preview here

    It was released in Japan, but seemed to have a heavy language barrier. Its in my "RPG worth waiting for" list, glad its coming out 23rd this month according to Gamefaqs

    Oh yeah, that does look pretty good. There was a review of it in the latest Game Informer issue.

    There was a Devil Summoner in the Shin Megami series too, but on Sega Saturn

    its not.
    but the original megami tensei are better than persona anyways x].
    I beat the game(jpn version), and I must say its really good.
    It has a big list of monsters you can use, as well as fuse together.
    There are multiple endings. The story is really nice (i liked it at least).
    The game in general is quite challenging, especially the last boss. He is over powered.
    You can basicly train yourself how you want (in my case I went for a 'mage' increasing magical powers a lot, but of course you can die easily with 1 blow).
    The game system is really nice. Its a SRPG obviously. basicly its a strategy game, but when you go to attack a monster, or get attacked, it becomes like a classical turn based RPG.
    I personally give the game 10/10. I loved it.

    I'd buy Sarah Makes Tinkle: DS, sounds fun.

    there is roughly about 200 monsters. so yea, thats the limit too. there are like 5-7 different humans you can use too, depending on the path you take for the ending.


    btw for those that never played the shin megami tensei series, just think of it like pokemon with yugioh monsters. LOL, except the human gets to fight as well.
    Also the SMT series (not this one, this is an exception) is famous for its 'catching' system. Instead of using pokeballs, you negotiate with the monsters in battle, bribing, making deals, whatever neccessary. too bad this one didn't follow the usual system or i would've liked it a lot more. still a great game.

    I'd assume a ton of demons are in this game, as per SMT tradition. And as for the limit, I guess you'd have to find out how many demons they can cram onto a little DS cartridge [​IMG]

    ........

    Why? You must either have a good reason, or you are out of your mind. Or your Japanese isn't strong.

    first of all it is just another SLG game, the best part of the game is the devil management~!
    besides that i don't see anything special
    i prefer the ORIGINAL shin megami

    have you ever realise i play only J games and usually i make codes only for J games?
    so if my japanese isn't strong? hahahaha maybe i will strike lottery with that!
    you can ask some of them
    it took me 10-15 minutes to fully translate the kingdom hearts menu, item and etc
    LOL

    EDIT: i don't use google translation
