Pokémon X and Pokémon Y is going to sell like hotcakes whenever it comes out because of Pokémon fervor. Still, reaching 260,000 pre-orders in two days is still an achievement.
A sobering contrast is how Devil Survivor 2 is doing in Europe. Pre-orders started on August 1 and at the halfway mark Devil Survivor 2 only has 627 pre-orders. That’s not even half of Ghostlight’s goal of 1,800 pre-orders required just to release the game.
Devil Survivor 2 is an engaging game, so it’s unfortunate it might not get a proper release in Europe. But, since Devil Survivor 2 is easy to import and Devil Survivor 2: Code Break is in development PAL gamers don’t have to miss out on demon vs. alien battles.
