Devil Survivor Overclocked per 3DS e Devil Survivor 2 per DS arrivano in Europa!

Come un fulmine a ciel sereno, Ghostlight annuncia l’uscita in Europa di Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor Overclocked per 3DS e Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor 2 per DS, due tra i più acclamati giochi di ruolo degli ultimi anni, facenti parte della storica serie di Atlus. La notizia giunge inaspettata considerando l’arrivo del primo in Nord America nel 2009; nel Vecchio Continente verrà quindi rilasciato il porting per 3DS che contiene un capitolo aggiuntivo ed una grafica migliorata ed inoltre il sequel, previsto ancora per DS. Ancora nessuna data per ora, ma si pensa che entro la fine del 2012 verranno resi entrambi disponibili. Di seguito, il comunicato ufficiale, in inglese:

Hi everyone. With pre-orders opening for Fate/EXTRA, it’s been a big week here at Ghostlight and it’s just got even bigger! I’m delighted to announce that we’re going to be working with the highly acclaimed team over at Atlus once again to release both the eagerly anticipated Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor Overclocked on Nintendo 3DS™ and its sequel, Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor 2 on Nintendo DS™, throughout the PALregion.

We’ve received a record number of emails about these games and Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor Overclocked was by far the most requested game after we announced we would be releasing games on the Nintendo 3DS.

About SMT: Devil Survivor Overclocked

Considered one of the best RPGs of 2009*, the original Devil Survivor presented gamers with a novel premise: Tokyois in full lockdown, the government’s swift, coldblooded response to a surprise demon invasion. While you and your friends must solve the nature of the inter-dimensional rift through which the horrific creatures are entering your world, saving the world is not your highest priority; staying alive, on the other hand, is.

Expanded and enhanced, Devil Survivor Overclocked for Nintendo 3DS builds upon the game’s original release with the addition of voice acting for the entirety of the game’s lengthy, unconventional narrative. Moreover, that very story, already boasting multiple endings based on critical decisions by the player, now concludes with a special eighth chapter, a rousing epilogue for Shin Megami Tensei fans. The game’s beautifully remastered hand drawn artwork and character portraits benefit from the new system’s higher resolution screens, offering players a crisper, higher fidelity experience.

When a new website that shows the manner of people’s deaths in advance makes the rounds amongst Japanese high schoolers, a trio of students is shocked to witness their own deaths in a terrible subway accident just minutes away. They narrowly escape the carnage, only to find themselves in a worse situation–facing otherworldly demons. Desperate to survive, they fend off the demons and flee, but the destruction at the station is only the beginning…

Key Features

*What if You Could See People’s Deaths Before They Happened?

The spread of a mysterious website that offers a preview of people’s deaths, and the great calamity that suddenly strikes Japan – a mere coincidence, or part of something larger? A band of high school students must use the website to avert their own deaths, as well as others’, amidst the unprecedented nationwide chaos.

*Recruit Your Party, Build Bonds

Adding a new dimension to traditional party mechanics, players must recruit new members to their team and then invest time into developing relationships with them. The closer the connection, the more effective they’ll be in battle. Every party member is mortal and susceptible to death, making it essential that every decision be weighed carefully lest they be lost forever.

*Collect, Customize, Barter and Fuse Every Last Demon!

Endlessly addictive, the task of discovering and enlisting new demons to aid you in battle is a staple of the Shin Megami Tensei universe. With nearly twice as many demons to find and unlock as in the original game, there’s no shortage of work to be done in assembling and managing an army of your own demons for battle.
