Are you a big Shin Megami Tensei fan who wishes the older games in the series were brought over to the UK back in the late 90s instead of only being available in Japan? Well finally the day has come where Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Summoner: Soul Hackers is making its European debut on the Nintendo 3DS later on this year.
Soul Hackers was originally released for the Sega Saturn back in 1997 and had a further release on the Playstation in 1999. The new European release will feature a variety of new gameplay features, enhancements and full English localisation.
Soul Hackers is an old style dungeon crawler that's set in a first person perspective featuring RPG elements where you take on evil demons or try to bring them over to your side. For the 3DS release it's had a new opening animation created along with a new theme song, plus there's additional in-game content such as a new dungeon plus Raidou Kuzunoha has been introduced into the game who you may know from previous Shin Megami titles.
Sadly we don't always get release of Shin Megami games that easily in Europe, with some just being completely missed for Europe like Devil Summoner 2 on the Playstation 2 or Strange Journey on the Nintendo DS. Luckily with companies like Koei and Square Enix releasing the newer Persona titles, and Ghostlight bringing over what they can. Plus of course Nintendo are bringing us Shin Megami Tensei IV for the Nintendo 3DS this year there seems to be a rise in releases. Sadly that still doesn't mean we get all the great games that ATLUS release in Japan and America.
Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Summoner: Soul Hackers is set for release exclusively on Nintendo 3DS in Europe later this year in the fall.
