3DS gets Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Summoner: Soul Hackers


8:30 AM on 12.19.2012



I looooooove you, Atlus. What a nice little Christmas surprise!

If you know your SMT (and I know plenty of you do), you'll know that we missed out on Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Summoner: Soul Hackers here. It was released on the Saturn and PlayStation in Japan in the late 1990s, but the west never saw it.

This first-person, dungeon crawling, cyberpunk-ish RPG is now coming to the Nintendo 3DS with new enhancements and a full English localization. Atlus is shooting for Spring 2013 for release in the US. 

In it, you'll fight and/or team up with demons to fight other demons. Soul Hackers features 30 new demons, a new opening, a new theme song, better controls, and better load times. Oh, and the 3DS bottm screen will be used for a map. Upon completition, you'll have access to a new dungeon where you'll run into Raidou Kuzunoha!

Enjoy a new trailer and a few new screenshots this morning.

I. Cannot. Wait.

Namco gives us a nice long look at Tales of Zestiria

Tales of Zestiria is on display at Tokyo Game Show this week, but those of us not cavorting around Japan will have to settle for this extended peek at the forthcoming role-playing game. Bandai Namco aims to release Tales of Zestiria in Japan on January 22, 2015. No word yet on when exactly the publisher plans to localize the PS3 title for western audiences, though. more
