A look at the Devil Survivor 2 “Gold Edition”

Hi everyone.  Thank you all so much for your amazing support for the Devil Survivor 2 pre-order campaign so far.  We’ve made a solid start but after just under a week since the pre-orders went live, I can tell you that we’re still a fair way from reaching our target of 1800 pre-orders.  I hope to have exact figures for you shortly, but in the meantime please keep helping us spread the word to all those JRPG fans out there.

You may have noticed that our website was struggling last week under the extra traffic created by the DS2 campaign, so you’ll be pleased to hear that our IT chief has arranged a much needed upgrade to our website’s capacity (thanks Ben!)  This should mean that if you’ve been trying to pre-order Devil Survivor 2 over the last week and weren’t able to, then now’s a great time to try again :)

Our designers have created a mock-up image of the Gold Edition pack that we’re offering for Devil Survivor 2.  Check out this picture to see what the poster and alternative gold coloured logo will look like.  Obviously we aren’t able to show you your name in the manual (yet), so you’ll just have to imagine that part :)

You can pick up this great edition of the game and get your name in the manual for just £24.99/€29.99 from here.  Alternatively, if you want to save £10 on Devil Survivor Overclocked at the same time, you can buy it with the above package for just £49.98/€59.98 (usual price £59.98/€69.98) from here.

Remember, pre-orders will close on Friday 30th August, by which time we hope to have reached our target.  If we hit the required 1800 units, then we’re expecting Devil Survivor 2 to be released by the end of September. However, should we not meet this quota then everyone who ordered Devil Survivor 2 will receive a full refund, while those who ordered the double pack will have the option to receive Devil Survivor Overclocked with the £10.00 discount.  (Sorry to keep repeating this info, but we want everyone to be clear on everything.)

In other news, our thrilling 3DS action-driving game Crash City Mayhem (created by the lovely folk over at Rocket Company in Japan) is now on sale on the 3DS eShop.  The price has been reduced by a massive 50% from £17.99 down to just £8.99!  The sale will run from August 8th until August 22nd so make sure you grab the game at this amazing price while you have the chance.

Lastly, I have some Agarest news for you all.  Thanks to the hard work of the guys at Laughing Jackal along with our intrepid band of beta testers, we are now fast approaching our first Agarest: Generation of War PC master candidate.  We’ve been busy squashing the last few remaining bugs as well as integrating the DLC, so this means that while we’re not quite there yet, we’re not too far off being able to announce a release date. 

That’s all for now, but if you haven’t already done so you can pre-order Devil Survivor 2 here, or here if you want to pick up Devil Survivor Overclocked too.  I’ll be back next week, but until then why not follow us on our Twitter and Facebook pages, our Youtube Channel and our  Google + account, where we’ll be posting all the latest news from Ghostlight? You can also follow me on Twitter for a more personal take on all things Ghostlight.

Pre ordered. What can I say, tempting offer.

I really hope we'll make it - I pre-ordered from NL after seeing an article on eurogamer.

I do hope you guys have also reached out to other european game-related newssites. It's really a shame every time we miss out on a SMT game in europe (luckily I was able to import the likes of Strange Journey - but now the 3DS is region-locked, I fear for my future SMT games)

But noting the low pre-order amount so far... why don't more europeans have good taste?

I live in Reunion Island ,Can I pre-order the game ? The delivery is ok for Reunion Island ? I think no :( and when will be release the eshop version of devil survivor overlocked ? I cannot find this game :(

I would guess that about 500 preorders have been made so far. It could be a good start, but also a long way from the goal itself. If it is about that much, it's a good start, but fewer than I expected. Now's the first time I'm thinking the goal might not be reached. Hopefully it will, and we can get the game.


Rumours say Nintendo is planning some kind of service to allow retail DS-games to be downloaded from 3DS eShop. I need to look more into it, though.

Slightly offtopic but has Ghoslight looked into Senran Kagura Burst on the 3DS? Xseed picked it up recently and is releasing download only, I'm guessing due to the controversy it may cause. It's basically a fighting game with boobs. Just wondering if you'd look into it and perhaps run it through the Game Rating guys to see if you can release it without issue..

I'm really looking forward to it, we have to get this!

Any update on the eshop release of DS:Overclocked? It'd be great if I could apply the same discount from the bundle but to the download version instead. Here's another alternative idea, if we buy the download code from your website instead of the eshop we can get a poster delivered? I'm mad for posters :P

I'm afraid I don't have the numbers to hand at the moment. I will try to find out though.

Hi, do you know if the Devil Survivor Overclocked that will come in the double pack (hopefully) will come patched or not? I'll place my pre-order on the second half of the month, btw. Come on people, let's make this happen!!! :-)

September?, but I first get a 3DS in October for Pokemon X and Y + DDD :( oh well I can always play on DS lite.

@Dave Davidhoff Dowling I'm starting to lose hope as this is not marketed at all. It's like SMT games are destined to struggle when it comes to EU territories. Sigh.

I'm also still waiting for someone to tell us the "exact figures" that were mentoined in the article.

@Arthur Jarret 


Are you serious or just being Naive? The low pre order is because a lot of people who wanted this game have it. Try and step in to reality for a sec and understand that most of the fans already imported this game....so you're left with a small minority of people who will buy another copy or dont' have it. I'm all for you supporting it and pre ordering but don't go on about europeans having no Taste. That's a load of ********. Europeans have taste, but they choose to not be done in the backside by Atlus constantly regarding their best games. IT's not ghostlights fault but what can you do? I thank Ghostlight for bringing these games but lets be honest. I'm not waiting 9 years for identical games. It's an insult.

@Arthur Jarret Thanks for ordering from us :)

@Edge974 I'll look into this when I get in on Monday.

@Andyliini Sounds pretty sweet, there are many DS games that were printed in a very limited run. I'm looking for Dragon Quest V, but it's a lot more expensive compared to 4 and 6 which you can find new and sealed cheap as f**k.

@Mattt1231 I'll suggest it to the rest of the team.  We've had a few people asking about that one.

Oh and its been rated T for Teen in America according to the Xseed twitter.

@JamesDolan I don't think we'd be allowed to sell download codes I'm afraid.  Don't have any news on the eShop version either yet but I'll try and get some for you.

@Tom It should be sometime in the next few weeks.  I'll try and give some warning beforehand though.

@Ross Brierley @Mattt1231 It's already been picked up by a "rival" publisher, and scheduled for Q1 2014. Don't know if I can name the company. It starts with a Z. Will be physically released as well, btw.

@Ross Brierley @JamesDolan Thanks for that, I'm a bit hesitant about ordering the bundle at the moment in case the following week details of the eshop release come out.

@Ross Brierley 
Cheers.  As long as they open after a thursday update saying they're going to be opening soon I'm happy.

Actually, Zen United is the distributor. It's being published by Marvelous AQL Europe.
