Devil Summoner: Soul Hackers Release Date Locked For April


Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Summoner: Soul Hackers has a release date on the Nintendo 3DS, revealed this morning by Nintendo of America. The game is slated for release on April 16th.


As previously reported, Devil Summoner: Soul Hackers, originally released on the Sega Saturn, has been updated with voice-acting, faster battles, the ability to change difficulty setting mid-dungeon, and an auto-mapping feature on the 3DS bottom screen.


The 3DS version also has 30 more demons, a new theme song and animated opening, and of course, English-language text, since this is the first time Soul Hackers is making it across the pond.
