Devil Survivor 2 Hits Pre-Order Target to Confirm EU Release

Posted by Thomas Whitehead

Additional pre-orders are now guaranteed

Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor 2 has had a rather odd route to release in Europe. Ghostlight picked up publishing duties for the DS title in Europe, but not before a 3DS port was confirmed for Japan. With time and effort invested in the DS original, Ghostlight has nevertheless persevered.

Its path to the market has been difficult, however, as its release as a physical copy brought financial pressures in manufacturing the cartridges. A minimum of 1800 pre-orders were needed for the costs to be covered and the release to go ahead, with two bundles available — for £24.99/€29.99 the DS game could be ordered with a poster, a special alternative cover with a gold logo and the chance to have your name in the manual, or for £49.98/€59.98 there was a double pack that also included a discount copy of Devil Survivor Overclocked. Ghostlight has now confirmed that it's hit its target — though it seemed to have been a close-run campaign.

The publisher will be setting up manufacturing and providing an update on a release date soon. Pre-orders are still open for both options and are now guaranteed to be fulfilled, though the opportunity to have your name printed in the manual is gone. Check out Ghostlight's website if you want to take the plunge, and the EU launch trailer is below.

It's good they are releasing it in Europe, but I don't see the problem, you can just import a copy from America, because the original DS is region free.

I would pre-order, but I'm saving up money for the Zelda Wii U. Still, this was a great idea and I hope smaller publishers do stuff like this in the future. To be honest, I didn't think they were going to make it. But I'm very happy by the result :)

Is it too late to get the limited edition with gold cover?

Oh, also if it exclusive to their site? I wanted this game.

Language barrier. European versions of games tend to have several different languages on the cart. Also, if this game was coded as a "DSi-enhanced" game like Fire Emblem Shin Monshou no Nazo Hikari Kage no Eiyuu, then it would be region-locked on all DSis and 3DSes.
