Reason to smile

Atlus and Sega's publishing partnership with Deep Silver was confirmed a while back and came as incredibly positive news for European fans, as it means they should be getting access to all of the lovely RPGs produced by those two firms.

3DS titles Shin Megami Tensei IV: Apocalypse and 7th Dragon III Code: VFD were both confirmed as part of that news, but no release date was given. We can now report that these two RPG offerings will arrive in Europe before Christmas, so you can add them to your list for Santa if you so wish.

7th Dragon III Code: VFD is already available in North America, and you can read our review here. "With top-class character customization, a delightfully different combat system and a slick nature-futuristic style, 7th Dragon III Code: VFD is a fantastic addition to the 3DS' JRPG library," is what we said at the time of launch.

Shin Megami Tensei IV: Apocalypse, on the other hand, is due for release in North America on September 20th - so European players aren't going to have to wait much longer for that.

Will you be picking either of these up? Let us know by posting a comment below.
