Even though the PS2 is dead, its legacy lives on as sources tell Siliconera that Atlus will be reprinting both Raidou Kuzunoha games on the PS2. Devil Summoner Raidou Kuzunoha vs. The Souless Army and Devil Summoner 2: Raidou Kuzunoha vs. King Abaddon were both released near the end of the PS2’s lifecyle, 2006 and 2009 respectively. And since these were Atlus games, they became very rare to find, especially the second game that came with the Raiho plushie. They’ve also gotten mighty expensive.
Some are wondering why reprint them instead of making them PS2 classics. Well, it’s kinda hard to pinpoint an answer as both have their strengths and weaknesses. Releasing it as a PS2 classic could make the game much more available to everyone, but some might want a physical copy considering how hard these two are to come by. With a physical copy, people will get a second chance to get these games, but might prefer to play them on a PS3 as a PS2 classic (since these are the original PS2 games and all later models can’t read PS2 discs). There’s also the fact that PS2s are no longer being made.
Regardless, now’s your chance to get these games if you missed out. Both will be $30 each. Unfortunately, you get no second chances to get Raiho.
