Europe, How Badly Do You Want Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor 2?


Once upon a time, U.K. publisher Ghostlight were looking to release Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor 2 in Europe, but that may or may not happen now.


Earlier in the year, Ghostlight revealed that their work on Devil Survivor 2 was complete and had even been approved for release by Nintendo, but that retail support for Nintendo DS games was low, and this was preventing them from releasing the game.


At the time, Ghostlight added that one possible solution was to release a collector’s edition of the game exclusively through their website, but that this would require the “full support” of fans. Today, they shared a bit more on just what this means. On their blog, Ghostlight write:


Devil Survivor 2 will be released exclusively for pre-order through the Ghostlight Webstore with a (TBC) minimum quantity. Should we achieve this minimum quantity of pre-orders within one month, we will manufacture and release the game. However, if we don’t reach the minimum then everyone who pre-ordered the game will be refunded and the game will unfortunately not be released.


Ghostlight add that fans who do pre-order the game will have their names added to the manual if Devil Survivor 2 is released. Additionally, anyone with further questions or feedback can voice their thoughts on Ghostlight’s blog in the comments.
