While North American gamers have been already able to enjoy Shin Megami Tensei Devil Survivor: Overclocked on their 3DS for a long time, the European version of the game was just released yesterday. The game is an enhanced port of Devil Survivor, released on DS a few years ago: the enhanced 3DS port includes fully voiced story scenes, extra demons and skills, new characters, scenarios and endings.
A few gamers have reported on the Gamefaqs boards for the game and on Ghostlight’s Official Twitter account that the game is actually full of bugs, with some preventing gamers to use some necessary features and complete the game. One of the bugs causes the game to freeze when using the “Summon” command. Another report states that the auction house crashes when the seller has lied about the demon’s stats, forcing players to reset their consoles: while not completely game breaking, it’s still bad to have the game freeze for no apparent reason.
This whole situation is truly surprising, considering Ghostlight took two years to get the game released in Europe. Not only Atlus European fans have to wait years to be able to play their favorite games but also get some broken releases.
Ghostlight has yet to speak about this whole situation and about a possible upcoming fix. If you are thinking about getting the game I suggest you wait for the fix before doing your purchase.
