Shin Megami Tensei: Digital Devil Saga coming to PSN next week!

Hi everyone.  I’ve got lots to tell you this week, so let’s kick-off with a follow up to a news item that I mentioned last week on our Twitter account.  I’m really happy to confirm (at long last) that a true classic of the PS2 era - Atlus’s fantastic Digital Devil Saga - will be coming to PSN on June 4th through the PS2 Classics programme!  Digital Devil Saga was originally released here in Europe all the way back in July 2006, which is roughly six months before I joined the Ghostlight team as a tester.  While I obviously never got to work on DDS itself, I did play it at home and really enjoyed the game’s dark and immersive atmosphere and phenomenal storyline.  I’ve been playing the game again this week and I’d honestly forgotten just how good a game it is!  The ‘Press Turn’ battle system is excellent but the Junkyard is still definitely one of the more memorable settings for me.  Here’s a little more info…

Set in an alternative universe, six warring factions are engaged in a deadly power struggle to be the only surviving group. The rules of engagement are irrecoverably changed by the impact of a new life-force who gives each character the power to transform into an alter-ego demon with extreme powers and skills - and a taste for the flesh of defeated foes.

Have you got the appetite for Digital Devil Saga?

  • Part of the globally renowned and hugely successful Shin Megami Tensei role-playing game series.
  • Awe-inspiring video sequences guide the player through the engaging storyline.
  • Lavish and diverse locations and gaming environments.
  • Satisfying turn based RPG combat with added elements and combos based on the characters ability to be in human or demon form.
  • Over 60 hours of gameplay - even for the most ardent RPG fans.

Digital Devil Saga was critically acclaimed receiving a mighty 100% from Game Chronicles and in fact they even went so far as to call it “One of the best games of all time.”  It also received a very impressive 95% from RPG Fan and 91% from Gaming Age to name just a few of the excellent reviews.  The game will be priced at just £6.49 so if you missed out on playing this classic, or if you’ve simply mislaid your old boxed copy and want to relive the experience, then keep your eyes on the European PSN store next week and grab yourself a huge helping of JRPG goodness :)

In other news, it’s time for our third Agarest Zero DLC bundle of goodies to make their way on to Steam :)  The Agarest Zero Bundle #3 will contain the following DLC items:

                Tomorrow's Hero Pack

                Schie's Bargain Pack

                Extra TP Pack

As with the first two bundles, it will be priced at just £3.99 which means you’ll be saving a massive 50% (well, very nearly) over the £7.97 it would cost you to pick up the DLC items individually on PS3.  As usual the new DLC bundle will go up at roughly 6pm BST and will be available from the Agarest Zero Steam Store page, here.

Two weeks ago, when I introduced the previous bundle of Agarest Zero DLC, I also spoke about how pleased we were with how the new bundles were being received by everyone. So much so, that we are now planning to introduce DLC bundles to Agarest: Generations of War in an effort to make the huge list of available Agarest DLC somewhat less overwhelming :) The individual items of DLC will be removed from sale when the bundle packs are made available and we will of course be offering similar savings to those offered in the Agarest Zero DLC bundle packs.

That’s just about it from me this week apart from reminding you that the team here are hard at work bringing Agarest 2 & Elminage Gothic to PC, plus I should have yet more interesting news for you in the not too distant future! :)

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.

When I read the name of the game in the title I almost got an heart attack. And then I read "PSN". I still pray to the Ghostlight lords to release this game on Steam.

The PSN release will be the same as the original PAL PS2 release.

Hey I've heard that there were some quality issues with the initial PS2 PAL release of DDS1 because there was no 60 Hz conversion option. Is this no longer a problem with the emulation on PS3?

@Vash The Stampede I'm afraid that it's unlikely we'll be changing this in the first game.
