All Articles: Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor Overclocked
Pokemon X and Pokemon Y are coming. Not only will they be available on store shelves this Saturday, October 12, but they will also be available to download on day one from the 3DS eShop.
However, if you’d rather know what’s available in this week’s Nintendo Download that you can play today, I’m happy to oblige. Sticking with the 3DS eShop, Nintendo will add Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor Overclocked, a well-liked RPG from Atlus, to their online store today. And skipping over to the Wii U eShop, Golf and Tennis, two Virtual Console titles, are now available to download.
More information on these games, and a few other new releases, can be found after the break. (more…)
The driest August ever (both weatherwise and gamewise) continues this week as just a handful of new releases will make their way onto store shelves.
The biggest release is the long-awaited Deus Ex: Human Revolution, which will be available on the PC, PS3 and Xbox 360. Eidos Montreal has been hard at work on the third Deus Ex game since before the company was purchased by Square Enix. The only other completely new game available this week is Tropico 4. El Presidente’s latest conquest is coming to the PC now and to the Xbox 360 sometime in the future.
The rest of this week’s new releases are all re-releases in some way. Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor Overclocked is a 3DS remake of the DS game of the same name while Nintendo has the second wave of their Nintendo Selects budget line (Mario Strikers Charged, Punch-Out!!, Super Mario Galaxy, Super Paper Mario) set for release this week.
Slim pickings to be sure (though Punch-Out!! is a complete steal at $19.99), but the big autumn game avalanche is coming soon. So be patient.
Atlus just upped the new teaser trailer for Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor Overclocked, the 3DS remake of the not-so-3 DS RPG whose original title wasn’t so overclocked. The video unfortunately does that handheld trailer thing where they show the game on a smaller screen within the video, presumably in fear how embarrassing it actually looks in a larger size. I’m not sure why, since the 3DS is supposed to have pretty great visuals, but hopefully the game will be just fine when it (re-)releases on June 28.
Released back in the summer of 2009 for the original DS, Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor was a unique hybrid of strategy RPG and the classic, challenging turn-based battles the Megaten franchise is known for. Two years later, an enhanced version of the game is coming for the Nintendo 3DS, dubbed Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor Overclocked. In Atlus tradition, SMTDSOC (if you’re nasty) is not just a cheap cash-in – it also features improved visuals to take advantage of the 3DS capabilities, fully voiced cutscenes, and most importantly, an eighth day of being quarantined inside Tokyo while demons roam free. Otherwise, you get the same great game with the usual demonic tomfoolery and of course, fusing!
For those who don’t know of this interesting title, here’s the original Devil Survivor trailer – the official Overclocked site can be found here, but as of now, there’s nothing to see – so this’ll have to do.
