Devil Survivor 2 Pre-orders open next week

Hi everyone!

I’m sure you remember that last week we asked for your support in helping us to release the fantastic Devil Survivor 2 on DS, and first off I just wanted to thank you all for your feedback.  We’ve taken your comments on board and I can reveal that pre-orders are going live from next week when I will also be revealing the magic number needed for the release to go ahead.  The game will be priced at just £24.99 / €29.99 and don’t forget that if we reach our target, your name will be included in the manual.  Plus, to encourage Devil-Survivor-newcomers to get involved in the campaign, we’re looking into offering a special pre-order pack containing Devil Survivor 2 together with a heavily discounted copy of Devil Survivor: Overclocked.

Oh, and speaking of Devil Survivor Overclocked, I can tell you that wheels are turning and it looks very much like the game will be coming to the eShop in the near future.  I’ll have more details on that in the next couple of weeks.

Moving on to Elminage Original now.  We’ve finalised all the items to be included in the very Limited Edition and we expect to put the title into manufacture in the next week or two.  I’ll make sure to give you all plenty of notice before pre-orders go live on this very exclusive edition :)

And lastly, an update on Agarest: Generations of War for PC, and I’m pleased to let you all know that we will be adding more people to the Agarest PC beta.  If you already applied for the Beta first time around, there’s no need to re-apply as we have kept your details on file and will consider them again, unless you asked us to delete your details of course.

[Edit] Thank you to everyone who applied for a spot on the Agarest beta. Applications for the Agarest Beta are now closed for the time being. We'll be getting back to everyone who applied later this week. [/edit]

The minimum PC requirements to run Agarest: Generations of War are:

Windows XP or later

2 Ghz Processor

2 Gb RAM

DirectX 9.0c compatible sound card

Graphics card: needs to support v3 shaders

Of course while we’re busy with all this we haven’t forgotten about the Vita owners out there.  We’ve actually been evaluating a shiny new Vita title this past week with a view to localising it for Europe.  While I can’t say much about it, the game is rather good, so fingers crossed we manage to pick it up.

That’s all for now.  I’ll be back next week with more news from Ghostlight. Until then you can follow Ghostlight 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.

I'd pre-order in a heartbeat if we got extra stuff. However, in the end I'll pre-order either way. Really appreciate you work, GL.

I would be happy to preorder Devil Survivor 2 if I can have a discount on DS Overflocked. By the way, thanks for bringing all these RPGs to Europe !

For the devil survivor 2 pre-order, are we allowed to pre-order more than one copy or only one copy per user? I ask because my brother might be interested to have one copy (he will confirm me his choice wednesday). If he say me that he want one (and if it is possible to pre-order more than one copy), I would like to pre-order two copy of devil survivor 2, one for me and the second I will offer as a gift for my brother birthday.

Just wondering, how much would basic delivery in the UK cost? Just want an idea to make sure I have enough please. and is there an additional charge for delivery in Caithness because some places charge extra...

€30? That's a good price. I'll be pre-ordering SMT: Devil Survivor 2 as well!

No SMT: Devil Survivor Overlocked for me until it's pre-patched.

Oshikuru

Yes, finally DS2 :D


But please don't tell me your webstore just accept credit/debit cards? That would be awful because i don't have any of those. 

Do you accept payment methods like paypal or a checking account? Man i would even put the money in an envelope and send it it your way if there were no other option, because i really want to pre-order the game. Please don't destroy my hopes.

Any word on special stuffs for DeSu 2? Or just the game itself and nothing beyond?

Impatient to get my hands on Elminage!


Would you consider making limited editions of more download-only titles? I'd like Unchained Blades.

Any chance you can give more details regarding the price of the discounted Overclocked and the proposed price of the eshop version?

Also please please please can we get some posters or something? :'D

I'll definitely preorder DeSu 2, hopefully all goes well and you meet your requirements, fellas. Getting my name in a game manual, that's kind of exciting!

And ooh, a Vita game? Good to hear, the thing desperately needs more love on this end of the world.

Red91

Sweet, nice price too! Now I just have to finish DS:O...gonna be hard, since I just got Lucifer's Call today ^_^

Any chance you could give us some hints as to what the Vita title is?

I have already asked about this but I think I did not have an answer. Sorry if it was the case, but I'll ask it again :

Still no plans for a pre-patched physical Devil Survivor Overclocked version as of now? One that would need no online connection to properly work? (technically speaking, one that would only have the American version's glitches...)

If I remember well, there were one or more print runs that still needed the patch even after the glitches were discovered and fixed.

Oh man i wish my name would be in the credits of the game but oh wel i will still pre-order it :D

Oh and i hope the vita-title is an RPG because there are so many great RPG available for the device in Japan. Is it MIND=0 or a The Legend of Heroes-Game? Oh or what about YS: Memories of Celceta and hell yeah Tales of Hearts R? Ok i'm dreamin but i really hope it's something awesome :D

@Pixel Not just yet, there should be a blog post later today explaining what is happening

Ross Brierley

@Mei If we make it on the last day it will be shipped on the 27th September.  However it will enter manufacturing as soon as we know we have enough so there is a possibility it might be shipped earlier.


Ross Brierley

@Johnnler Sorry.  I'm not sure I understand what you're asking.

Ross Brierley
Ross Brierley moderator

@Phan Van Nghia You should be able to pre-order more than one copy.

Ross Brierley

@JamesDolan I'll get more details in next week's blog as we're still finalising the exact discount on DSO.

Ross Brierley

@Red91 I can't until it is signed.  At this point we're trying to pick it up but there's still no guarantee we'll be able to get it.

@Julien_N You have nowhere to access Wi-Fi for the thirty to forty minutes it would take you to upgrade the firmware (without which you cannot access the eShop) and five more minutes to download and install the patch? Nowhere at all?

Ross Brierley
Ross Brierley moderator

@Julien_N As far as I'm aware there are still no plans for a pre patched version.

BenoitRen

Don't get your hopes up for Tales of Hearst R either, because Namco-Bandai doesn't want anyone touching their Tales of games.

BenoitRen

@Pixel You can't expect a The Legend of Heroes from Ghostlight unless XSEED Games has localised a new one, which they haven't. Remember, Ghostlight doesn't do any localisation (though they did give it a try with the original Agarest War in the past, with horrendous results).

JamesDolan

@Pixel Our name on the credits would be super awesome too. I'm guessing they haven't finished the game yet so it could still be done? 

BenoitRen
BenoitRen

@Ross Brierley I think he's asking if SMT: Devil Survivor Overclocked met Ghostlight's sales expectations.

Oshikuru
Oshikuru

@Ross Brierley   Man that is awesome. Thank you :D


Oh could you answer one more question? It's about this "name in the manual" thing. 

So, who exactly will be in the manual? Everyone who pre-orders or just a limited number,  for example just the first 200 or something?  Because i really can't imagine that 1000 names would fit in a manual.


Oh and this "special pack" will contain DS2 and DS:Overclocked right? So if i pre-order this pack,will my name also be included in the manual?


And again thank you for the fast reply :D

@NoelemahcI do have a WiFi access and have connected my 3DS to the eShop without any issues. ^^

If I absolutely want a pre-patched version of the game, it is because : 

-The game was not supposed to have these additonnal bugs in the first place. The NA and JP versions did not have those. ( they are not entirely bug-free, but that is another story) We waited almost 2 years, so it is not even as if the game was rushed to meet a release deadline. (and if it were the case, it would not be an excuse, just an explanation)

-I do not want to buy an incomplete physical game that depends on a server-based software update to properly work. If I want to play the game on another 3DS because the first one is broken or if I lend my game then I have to re-download and re-install the patch and if I want to do so in a few years when the servers are down, then too bad for me.

 -It is very convenient to put the game cartridge into the console and immediatly start playing. Consoles are supposed to be plug'n'play and I do not want to lose this aspect, even if downloading and installing the patch does not take very long.

It is basically a question of principles. The less I rely on the Internet to play, the better. Games that need to be connected to online servers in a way or in another are less likely to be properly and fully playable in the future.

I hope you understand my point of view.

Julien_N

@Ross Brierley Thanks for your answer, Ross. I guess I will have to find another way to play Devil Survivor OC, then.

 Good luck with Devil Survivor 2!

@BenoitRen  Mmmh yeah true. But what about YS: Memories of Celceta? It is already confirmed for the North American market and has already a release date with XSEED as publisher.


So maybe Ghostlight will be responsible for the eu-release? That could be possible i think.

Ross Brierley
Ross Brierley moderator

@JamesDolan Devil Survivor 2 has been finished and approved the only thing that hasn't been done is actually manufacturing the carts.

Ross Brierley
Ross Brierley moderator

@Oshikuru @Ross Brierley It should be everyone who pre-orders and yes I believe if you order the double pack your name will still be included.

If there's any change from that I will let you know in next week's blog but I can't imagine there will be.
