European Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor Overclocked Release Date Altered

Relax though! It’s not delayed, it’s a week early!

It’s hard luck indeed to be a European gamer sometimes. Delays between a game’s release in one territory and another can often be brutal; many 3DS gamers have felt the pain recently with Japan’s stellar end of year lineup as 2012 faded. For European gamers, however, things have certainly improved in recent years, but there is still often a great deal of difficult waiting to be done.

Fans across Europe have been waiting to get their hands on Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor Overclocked for a while now. Well, more than a while, it could be safe to say. Yet according to Eurogamer, the wait could be even less than initially anticipated.

The Gang

“Europe? Oh, right! Knew we were forgetting somewhere.”

You’ve probably had your calendars set for April in the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Romania and so on, but pleasingly it seems the end of March is now on the cards.

That’s right! It’s been confirmed that the game is coming out a week earlier than initially thought, hitting stores on March 29th. Isn’t it nice when a shift in release dates is announced that’s to everyone’s advantage?

It’s been a long time coming indeed, as Japanese and American gamers have been enjoying the game since about 1987 or so. Well, maybe we’re overplaying that, but you get the idea.

Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor Overclocked deals with dimensional rifts opening in Tokyo, spewing demonic nasties out into the world to forsake all we hold dear. It’s up to you to rally a ragtag bunch of JRPG characters and bring the pain to those cheeky demons. If you’re reading from America, you probably already know this.

Of course, many European gamers may feel that a week-earlier release doesn’t quite dull enough of the pain caused by the remarkable delay in reaching the continent this title has suffered. What’s your opinion?
