While Europeans patiently — or perhaps impatiently — wait for Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Summoner: Soul Hackers to arrive on 13th September, North American 3DS owners have been enjoying the expanded reboot since April. Not only that, but the eShop download version is now available at a discount.
Until 14th July it can be picked up for $29.99, a drop from the standard $39.99. As a lengthy sci-fi epic RPG it may be worth having it on the system at all times, and it's certainly an experience we rated highly in our review, as the excerpt below makes clear.
For Shin Megami Tensei or Persona fans, this is a no brainer — Soul Hackers is a fantastic entry in the series and you won't be disappointed. Even better, it's an excellent place for newcomers to jump in, with a relatively smooth difficulty curve and user-friendly hacks to help you out of tight spots. Its mix of a late-90's futuristic setting with dark, mythologically-based demon designs is intoxicating, and there's an incredible amount of substance behind its irrepressible style. If you're looking for a deep, dark, story-driven dungeon crawler with soul, the Spookies await your call.
Are any of you on-the-fence 3DS owners in North America tempted to pick this up at a discount?
