Atlus put out a press release today announcing that Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor Overclocked will be released in North America sometime in September for the 3DS. The new version of the game is set to expand upon the original with voice acting for the entire narrative as well as additional, eighth chapter that serves as an epilogue. There’s no word as to whether 3D will feature into the game, but other than those additions, it’s the same game that came out for the DS in 2009. There is a website for the game, but so far it’s just an index page with “WEBSITE COMING SOON” on it.
Alex Lucard reviewed the game when it came out, and absolutely loved it.
It seems to me like this is a tide-over title while Atlus works out what’s going on with Innocent Sin and possibly Catherine as well for stateside release (though Catherine sounds like a perfect candidate for an AO rating). Devil Survivor is a great game, but it’s also less than two years old. Does it really need a remake?
