Devil Survivor 2 Pre-Orders For Europe Are Open Now

By Ishaan . August 3, 2013 . 12:30pm

Heads up, Europe—pre-orders for Devil Survivor 2 are now open, and you can pre-order the game here.  It’s available in two bundles:

 

Devil Survivor 2 (DS)

This special edition will be factory sealed and include an exclusive A4 folded poster featuring the cover art. Anyone pre-ordering the game will have the option to include their name in the manual and also as a bonus, pre-ordered units will feature a special gold coloured Devil Survivor logo on the inlay.

Pre-Order price £24.99/€29.99

The game will be available to all PAL territories.

 

 

Devil Survivor 2 (DS) & Devil Survivor Overclocked (3DS) with a £10.00 discount!

You’ll receive Devil Survivor 2 as above and both games will be factory sealed. As with Option 1, anyone pre-ordering the bundle will have the option to include their name in the DS2manual.

Pre-Order price £49.98/€59.98 (usual price £59.98/€69.98)

Regrettably, we will not be able to ship this bundle to Germany due to an existing distribution agreement.

 

Remember, Ghostlight need to see 1,800 pre-orders for the game before they’ll be able to commit to releasing Devil Survivor 2. Once they begin manufacturing, they expect to release the game by the end of September.

    My only hope is that, if this fails, Ghostlight (or any other publisher) won’t automatically assume it’s beacuse there is no demand for DS2 at all. Afterall, it could just as well mean that a lot of fans are aware that an updated rerelease is coming, so they are waiting for that instead of buying the original.

    Then again, considering the recent agreement between Atlus and NIS America, it’s questionable if Ghostlight will even get a potential Break Record publishing deal.

    • FitzpatrickPhillips

      If it does fail, it literally does mean that there is no demand for it. There are no assumptions to be made. Of course, it could be their fault as they are localizing a region-free game years later.

      • Sardorim

        However, they can take it that demand for DeSu games just isn’t there in Europe so they’ll question whether it’s worth investing into in the future regarding this series.

      • Tom_Phoenix

        You completely missed my point. Yes, obviously, this failing would mean that there is no demand for THIS version of the game. However, it would not mean that there is no demand for the enhanced port that will be released on the 3DS, since if this fails, it’s entirely possible that the reason for that failure will be the upcoming enhanced port.

        My concern is that this failing would make Ghostlight or any other publisher think that there is no demand for the enhanced port either.

        • Sardorim

          This version or not, it will tell them that DeSu 2 isn’t worth the investment in those areas. They may even hold off on Break Record for Europe, that easily could happen, using this as a reason not to invest. They already have shaky enough releases with Europe as is, they may use this as an excuse not to bother anymore.

    Certainly hope this hits the 1800 goal. Good luck, Europe!

    • GH56734

      It would be a disaster if they don’t. I hope it will, for the ultimate good of niche game releases in Europe.

      • http://linkapics.tumblr.com/ Linka

        Pretty much. One failure could paint the market negatively in the eyes of anyone else who’d localize games like this.

  • British_Otaku

    Not to discourage any fellow Europeans, but I hope DS2 doesn’t have any issues like DSO for Europe. I suppose they could do a recall, but issues back in the day and still for the DS can’t be waved away with a patch.

    I’ll be hopping on the bundle.

  • Sentsuizan_93

    Oh, It’s also worthy to note that pre-orders will close on August 30th, just to let you know.
    Which reminds me… I gotta pre-order this soon. *rushes to Ghostlight*

  • Sardorim

    Let’s see if Europe will bite or not.. I mean it’s only 1,800. I highly doubt all DeSu fans have a 3DS or are waiting on Break record.

  • Shane Guidaboni

    Wouldn’t the majority of Europe have imported DS2 since there was no region lock on the DS?

    • British_Otaku

      Not really, this release will likely cover all of the Multi-5 languages (German, French, Italian and Spanish on top of English) so there are a lot of people there would probably didn’t import given it’s a strategy RPG I hear, text heavy and all.

      Aside from that, “Shin Megami Tensei/Atlus/Persona” etc in general has a lot more presence now than before (even more so when Fire Emblem fans are being pulled in with deals and a crossover).

      Perhaps the English speakers who wanted the game quickly (probably already SMT fans) and assumed it was going to suffer the same fate as 999, Radiant Historia or Jump Ultimate Stars imported. Hardly the majority.

      • GH56734

        The first DS European version had only the English text. (maybe with minor alterations to be more approriate for UK, kind of like what Xseed did when bringing to the US the NoE version of Solatorobo)

        Though if they added these localizations in this case (even though it’s a niche mature game), it would help a lot.

        French and German audiences basically boycotted the English-only PAL Okamiden and Ace Attorney Investigations (one comment literally said back then: *usual insults to Capcom* now send us the sequel in Japanese!).
        Nintendo of Europe outright refused to publish Pokémon Conquest in France and KH3D:DDD in Spain because the games weren’t localized for these respective languages..

  • Malon

    I never played any of the three Devil Survivor (1 & 2 on DS and Overclocked on 3DS). Are the games good ?
    I really want to support Ghostlight but I don’t want to “waste” money. : (

    • Eefara

      They’re fantastic, deep games. They’re strategy, so make sure you like that genre, and they don’t hold your hand for anything- the games are fair, but if you don’t bring your A game, you’re much more likely to fail than succeed.

  • Alex Sargeant

    I remember something similar from when they released Digital Devil Saga way back when. Still pretty cool seeing my name in the manual.

  • Tom

    I’m not THAT interested in either of the 2 games, but the glorious goal is charming. This way we might can get some better treatment here in Europe. Should I buy both? That’s a lot of munny…

  • Keima88

    I already imported my copy from NA. Should I buy it again..?
    I bought 2 copies of P3P last time : the limited edition from GL and regular NA version.

  • benhofb

    Good luck Europe! This is a great game and I really hope you all get a chance to play it.

  • Guest

    I alread own an NA-copy… if I’m getting break code as well, I’d literally buy the same game 3 times. Mmhhh…

    Ah screw it, I’ll bite. If it raises the chance of future Atlus games being localized, even if it’s just a little bit, I’ll gladly pay those 30€. It may sound stupid, but they are by far my favorite company, nothing comes close to their games. Well, at least imho.

    Plus, there’s a poster, lol.

    • Brandonmkii

      I’d buy it just for the collectibility of it, but I’m in North America :c

  • Crimson_Cloud

    I’m a fan but I don’t have a DS. The least I could do is secure one copy for my friend’s birthday who has that handheld. He doesn’t really play those games, but hey. :3

  • Detrimont

    Here in NZ, the main online game store stocked the american version 1 month after it released in the states, so i’ve already got that, if it hadn’t, i would probably be preordering this, but there’s no point

  • Alestaos

    Would love to preorder the game hopefully. What i dont understand is why there not waiting for the updated version of the game on the 3DS those games are region locked. So they would hit there record easy. Us fans of the series or fans of atlus games in general already imported the NA one :/

    • SirRichard

      Because they can’t guarantee they’ll get Break Record, as NISA now have a European publishing deal with Atlus.

      • Alestaos

        Just a question since i dont know alot about NISA are they reliable and do they bring more titles to the EU quicker etc?

        • SirRichard

          This year, NISA announced a publishing deal with Atlus, being able to pick and choose Atlus releases and bring them to Europe. So far, all we’ve gotten from this is Persona 4 Golden, with Etrian Odyssey IV at the very end of August and Soul Hackers shortly thereafter.

          While they are faster and more reliable than Ghostlight in general, we still have to wait for months on end to get the games anyway. We’re only just getting Etrian Odyssey IV as the US winds up for New Etrian Odyssey, for instance, and Dragon’s Crown will be going up against Pokémon in Europe now. And god help SMT IV, whenever we’re getting that.

          • Alestaos

            Wow…didn’t know Dragons Crown has been postponed. Yeah i really want SMTIV but at this rate we will be getting it in 2014. I wish that the 3DS was region free..would give me more games to buy for the system. Rather than sit there and play the guessing game if its going to come here or when :/ Still i guess ill get Fire Emblem Awakening and Project x Zone

  • disgaea36

    Wow I still can’t believe europe is just now getting DS2. That’s crazy good luck to you guys people should def buy so like that more games keep coming ur way

  • Chim_era

    The problem for me is the release of Tales and Harvest moon this month.
    I already pre-ordered both those games and I really can’t afford the bundle package now. I just hope pre-orders are still open at the end of the month.

    I really want them :’(

  • kaizin

    I hope that Europe gets this really great game good luck.

  • Ric Vazquez

    I’m happy for the fans of Europe, they finally get to play it :)

  • KH1989b

    awesome

  • Ferofax

    Time to speak with your wallets, Europe. Ghostlight is looking to you guys for support.

  • Neppygear

    I don’t like Ghostlight nor Atlus very much at the moment, but I’ll bite. Pre-ordered.
