European fans of jRPGs will be delighted to read that game publisher Ghostlight is bringing the eagerly awaited Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor Overclocked and Devil Survivor 2 to the PAL region.
Although ports of both tactical RPG games are confirmed, said fans might want to wait to celebrate: neither game has a confirmed release date.
Ghostlight posted on its website that it would be working with Atlus to bring ports of the successful Devil Survivor Overclocked for the 3DS and Devil Survivor 2 to the DS.
The Devils are in the details
Devil Survivor Overclocked is the 3DS revamp of the original Devil Survivor, one of the most popular RPGs of 2009.
The 3DS version – Overclocked – is an expanded and enhanced offering of the original game, with voice acting, an extra chapter, and remastered graphics added to take advantage of the more robust hardware in the 3DS.
Devil Survivor 2 continues the theme of the first game (teenagers fighting to save Tokyo) but features a story not directly related to its predecessor. Thus, DS owners will not need to play Devil Survivor Overlocked in order to enjoy Devil Survivor 2.
Like most games in the Shin Megami Tensei universe, both Devil Survivor and Devil Survivor 2 are accessible to players unfamiliar with the rich, complex world of Atlus’s flagship RPG franchise and will make solid additions to the tactical/strategy RPGs available for Nintendo handhelds in Europe.
