Devil Summoner: Soul Hackers Hits Europe In September

By Ishaan . August 19, 2013 . 10:00am

Devil Summoner: Soul Hackers has a release date in Europe. NIS America have announced that the game will be available at retail on September 20th and on the Nintendo eShop starting September 25th.


That’s one Shin Megami Tensei game with a release date in Europe, at least. Shin Megami Tensei IV, which was announced by Nintendo earlier in the year, still doesn’t have a release date attached to it.


Before Soul Hackers, however, NIS America will be releasing another Atlus RPG in Europe—Etrian Odyssey IV, which will launch on August 30th.

      There’s not much to the book.
      There’s a small environment pic for each location (4.5 pages of a book that’s 1.33x the size of a DS box in height, same in width), there’s a pic of every character (same ones you’d get in an instruction booklet if there was one), and earlier versions of the characters in the same types of profile pics (1 profile-like early concept pic per main character).

      The rest is a strategy guide that covers about 2/3 of the game and isn’t very good at indexing. When I couldn’t for the life of me figure out where to go for a certain quest half-way in, I read through the parts I finished.

      The “guide” part goes out of its way to tell the player “don’t do this quest for 10 levels because the boss is hard” and “don’t bother with this until later” for a few quests that were no issue 5 levels before they thought I’d have them. And, as far as I can tell, the guide doesn’t explain how to do those quests later on.

      Personally, I found all the bosses I was “supposed to skip” as “semi-challenging” and “easy if you’re prepared,” but never warranting “waiting until later.”

      Soundtrack was more worthwhile, in my opinion. It has 8 tracks, most of which are around 1:30. I have yet to listen to it, but I wasn’t impressed at all with the “guide”/”design” book as it lacked as a “guide” and had no more “design” than a PS2 instruction booklet..
