European Release of Devil Survivor Overclocked Marred By Game-Breaking Bugs
Posted by Andy Green
Ghostlight is working on a fix
Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor Overclocked was released a couple of days ago in Europe but it appears there are a few issues with it that are causing 3DS owners to become a little agitated.
Unfortunately, the problems are more than just a mild irritation as they stop the player from progressing. For example, using the summon ability will cause the game to crash, forcing you to reset the console, and should an auction house seller lie to you about their stats, the game will also freeze. Nobody likes being lied to, but to have to suffer a 3DS crash as well? We think that's just plain harsh.
It's quite strange to see such large bugs within the European version of Devil Survivor Overclocked, as it is largely the same as the North American version, which had none of these issues whatsoever.
On the plus side, Ghostlight, the game's developer, has responded to the issues in a statement saying it will be doing all it can to fix them:
It is with much regret that we have to make this announcement. Many of you may already be aware that our most recent release of Devil Survivor Overclocked on 3DS unfortunately has some issues. These problems mean that currently you will not be able to complete the game. The game will hang/freeze if you summon a demon during battle or if an auction house seller lies about the stats.
Currently we are doing everything we can to fix these problems as quickly as possible so that you will be able to enjoy DSO in full.
We deeply value the continued commitment from our devoted Ghoslight fans and all the EU JRPG fans as without you all we wouldn’t be here. We hope that you will allow us to take the time needed to fix the problems and give you the gaming experience that you have waited for so patiently.
