Atlus confirms domestic debut for enhanced port of 2009 Shin Megami Tensei DS game; Overclocked to feature full voice acting, new epilogue chapter.
New hardware launch window lineups are often lacking in role-playing games, but Atlus is looking to address that oversight shortly after the March debut of Nintendo's 3DS. The publisher today announced that it would be releasing an enhanced 3DS port of 2009's DS strategy role-playing game Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor in North America this summer.
Titled Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor Overclocked, the game will feature the same basic story as the original, with a group of teenagers trying to escape Tokyo after the city goes into lockdown following a demon invasion.
As for new bells and whistles, Overclocked will feature full voice acting through the game, remastered art to take advantage of the 3DS's higher-resolution screens, and an extra epilogue chapter continuing the story.
For more on Overclocked's source material, check out GameSpot's review of the original Devil Survivor.
please come out in Europe, 3ds is region locked and I never got to play the original. also hopes for japanese voice actors are high
Good, early adopters of the 3DS needed an RPG fix. Let's just hope it comes out soon after the launch... and is good.
never played the original Devil Survivor, really want to get it (restarted SMT collection as of P4, thanks to my wife), looks like i'm getting this version instead :D glad I waited
Coudl this "extra epilogue chapter" be the actual war against God? That could translate into EPIC BOSS FIGHTS
The original was discontinued only a few months after release, so I wasn't able to play it. 3DS rocks!
Already played the original Devil Survivor. It owned me with it's difficulty xD I'll wait for 100% new Atlus stuff. love atlus
still keeping my 3ds reserve and when the time comes ill reserve ngp /psp2 but eh pass on this game , i will get nintendogs and hopfully asphalt is out as well
AS much as I am looking forward to this, I still wouldn't mind for a different SMT to have an english release instead of a remastered one.
im honestly kinda dissapointed, at least when i think of the other devil sumonner tittles WHICH HAVE NEVER BEEN RELEASED IN ENGLISH!!!
I want this game so badly... I really hope it gets released in Europe, it'd keep me hooked for ages.
So the original Devil Survivor didn't get a PAL release. Which was fine because the DS had no region-lock. But now because the 3DS has region lock, looks like I'm going to miss out this great game. Nintendo needs to be shot.
This is still gonna be awesome though, I wonder if they will add more content, that would definitly make it a great Enhancement
Looks good but only an NA release. Guess I'll have to import it. Oh, but wait, region-locking... Lame.
Atlus, you are full of win. Devil Survivor was my game of the year for 2009 and I gladly will repurchase it again to not only support Atlus, but enjoy it all over again with some additions. I really would love to have the Demi-Fiend as either an optional boss, team member, or something along those lines. Regardless, I don't think this one will disappoint in the slightest.
Am I surprised that some of the biggest announcements of "new" games for the Nintendo DS (Ocarina of Time, Devil Survivor) are actually remakes of existing games? No. No I am not.
The voice acting can either make or break the game... -thinks of suikoden tiekries- but in that game, even though the voice acting of the main character sounded like a adhd guy on meth, the game was actually good, just like this one :D
I liked the original and i might get the 3DS version. had some doubts about it coming to America but glad their nothing.
one down 2 more to go. i wonder which persona game is getting ported to it? cuz i doubt they would release a new one on the ds. unless of course it was a sidestory or something.
