Devil Survivor 2 reaches target!

Hi everyone.  I’ve got some fantastic news for you….#clears throat#... it seems that after a herculean push over the last week, I am delighted to say that Devil Survivor 2 has reached its pre-order target!  A massive (and I do mean MASSIVE) thank you to everyone who ordered the game or posted about it and helped us spread the word.  I knew we could count on you! :)

I think you’re all aware by now, but we genuinely couldn’t have done this without your incredible support - you have all truly been the difference in making sure that Devil Survivor 2 receives its well deserved European release.

If you’ve already ordered from us, we’ll be taking your names for inclusion in the manual from your shipping address.  Should you want us to use something else please feel free to contact us

We’ll be providing you all with a confirmed release date as soon as we complete the manual and put the game into manufacture.  If you haven’t pre-ordered from us yet but would still like to, Devil Survivor 2 is now available as a regular pre-order and you can place your order safe in the knowledge that the game will definitely be released :)  Please note that as of today, anyone ordering DS2 will still receive the “Gold Edition”, but your name will not be featured in the manual.

Once again, thank you SO MUCH for helping us release this terrific SRPG in Europe.  You guys are the best!

I’ll be back soon, 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

Luckily the PSP and Vita is region free. I think they should focus on region locked systems from now on. Like the 3DS. They'll sell a lot more like that.

Hey Ross, if someone ever localises Sword Art Online Infinity Moment, Ghostlight should put themselves forward, the game has sold really well in Japan on the PSP. Something like a quarter of a million copies have been sold so far. Though I doubt very much it'll get an English release. Oh and another thing, Xseed will be looking at Senran Kagura Shinovi Versus on the Vita after the 3DS game Senran Kagura Burst has been released.

If Amazon UK eventually stock this, it might be worth people reviewing the game and saying how awesome it is to encourage sales. It works for quite a few games, and it'd help Ghostlight sell more.

I'm glad we've made it: I was posting on miiverse, as well as sites I'm active in - basically bragging to receive such a limited run like we already made it!

Can't wait to receive it - and I'm anxious to see what gems you guys will dig out from the japanese coal mines next!

Marvellous! We've reached it! And I'm wondering, if it is possible for you to print a name in Cyrillic?

This is great news! I was actually sorta worried that the goal wouldn't be reached, but I'm really glad that it did.

@ghostlightgames Congrats, guys! Ecstatic to hear that you've pulled through. My faith was shaken for a moment.

Glad to see this happen and happy to support it!

Hopefully this opens up the way to more of the like for riskier titles. I'd love to see Eternal Punishment PSP get a release, perhaps crowd funding can offset the risk but it seems doubtful given those mysterious complication oft quoted as the reason for no localisation.

Congratulations and thank to everyone who supported this cause, and to Ghostlight for giving us the opportunity to do so!

Hopefully, through this way, more games can find their way to our shores. It's just sad that we'll probably never see the PSP version of "Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 2: Eternal Punishment" in English...

This is your second chance after Devil Survivor: Overclocked, I hope this game will have no issues. I supported it because I believe in you! 

ps: Greetings from a german supporter

Awesome! I pre-ordered the game, as well. Before the deadline, of course. So my name should be in the manual when it arrives! Can't wait!

Also, is there any news regarding when Elminage will arrive to people ordering from different countries? I ordered from the Netherlands... :)

@Gu4n Gravity doesn't apply there, it seems. All the boobs are pointing upwards? What the hell Japan :P

I never thought this woudl make it. I wonder where the final 1,200 preorders came from.

Anyway, I tip my hat to you, Ghostlight. This is to more localized JRPG goodness in the future. Cheers.

@RinOkumura I wish they did too, and also physical releases for download-only titles like Elminage: Original.

@UuU121 I'll suggest it. I really enjoyed the first half of the anime so a game based on the series could be cool.

@KaiTen I'm not sure.  Your best bet would be  to email shop@ghostlight.uk.com and ask.

@Rich 

Atlus don't want to release the other Persona 2 game in English because the PSP is dead now, and was dead at the time they pretty much said this. There is no conspiracy, no secret reason, the fact remains, the PSP is dead, no one will spend money localizing anything and dubbing, especially if its an RPG.

Worth noting the Royal Mail is so slow, if you live in Germany, France etc you could swim the channel, or use a row boat, get to England, walk to Ghostlights office, shake hands with the staff, buy them a beer, grab some food and swim/row back home and still beat the Royal Mails postage speed.

@Remy PostNL is very slow - I haven't received Elminage either. I hope to get it today, I loved first person dungeon crawlers ever since the first Lands of Lore on PC.

@Remy You should get your copy soon. I'm not in UK and got it in the mail today.

@kubuskwal I'm not too fond of the artist. Or the Devil Survivor games in general, actually.

@P @RinOkumura I have a physical release of Elminage: Original :P... well, I hope it arrives today, anyway.

@Gu4n Yeah, it seems a bit over the top, to the point that some designs become outright dumb. A shame.
