Devil Summoner: Soul Hackers cracks Europe this fall


NIS America is bringing Shin Megami Tensei Devil Summoner: Soul Hackers to Europe this fall, hot on the heels of the 3DS game finally being localized in North America. The Atlus dungeon crawler, originally released for the Sega Saturn in 1997, will in turn reach Europe for the first time in around a few months time.

NIS America also confirmed to us a concrete European release date for Imageepoch PS3 RPG Time and Eternity: June 28. That matches up with what Amazon's been listing for the region, not for the first time for a NIS America game. With that in mind, don't be surprised if Time and Eternity's "summer" window for North America gets upgraded to July 16.

About the game:
Soul Hackers delivers a first-person, dungeon-crawling RPG experience set in a future where
technology and otherworldly forces meet in a macabre fusion of cyberpunk futurism and gothic
horror. A first-person sci-fi RPG epic, Soul Hackers tells of a city held up as a beacon of
humanity's triumph of technology, but with an infernal secret. In this would-be utopia, a group
of hackers takes on a centuries-old mystic society, and a battle for control over humanity's fate
is about to begin.
Keeping the tradition of Shin Megami Tensei: Players will have the compelling choice
throughout their dungeon exploration to fight the enemy demons, or negotiate with them in
an attempt to turn them into allies and teammates!
Classic dungeon-crawling strikes back with more: Players who have already played the original
will also experience 30 newly added demons, along with a new opening animation movie and
theme song. There's also an extra dungeon, where players will witness the appearance of
Raidou Kuzunoha from the previous Devil Summoner games!
Utilize Nintendo 3DS functionality: Players can use the Nintendo 3DS bottom screen as an
auto-mapping system; engage a COMP hack to change difficulty levels on the fly and fill out
maps without having to traverse the area!
