ATLUS Brings Soul Hackers Stateside on the 3DS

Today ATLUS announced their plans to release their highly-acclaimed 1997 cyberpunk/horror-themed RPG Shin Megami Tensei:  Devil Summoner- Soul Hackers to non-Japanese speaking fans for the first time next Spring when it makes its way to North America on the 3DS. Originally released for the Sega Saturn and later the Playstation, this classic first-person dungeon crawler will be getting not only a fresh translation for English-speaking fans, the game will also be including a variety of new features such as the 3DS’s bottom screen functioning as a map to help with navigating the game’s maze-like dungeons, and an entirely new dungeon featuring Raidou Kuzunoha, the star of the previous Devil Summoner games.

“Soul Hackers’ first-week debut at number two among all titles in Japan is a testament to the continuing quality and popularity of the Shin Megami Tensei series, suggesting a bright future on the 3DS,” said Tim Pivnicny, Vice President, Sales & Marketing, ATLUS.  “With the vast array of new features, content, and extensive localization, this long-awaited release will be even more exciting for fans in North America.”
