The Devil Survivor Overclocked patch is ready!

Hi everyone.  I’m very pleased and more than a little relieved to be able to tell you that the patch for Devil Survivor Overclocked is now available from the eShop!

To download the patch, please enter the eShop on your 3DS and then search for Devil Survivor Overclocked.    After selecting the Devil Survivor Overclocked ‘patch’ please follow the onscreen instructions.

Once the update has been downloaded it will be installed automatically.  If the update has been successful you will see the text “ver 1.1” displayed on the title screen after launching the game.

Applying the update will address the following issues:

- The game will no longer freeze when summoning a demon during battle

- The infrequent hang encountered during Auction House ‘Accidents’ has been removed

- Text display errors have been corrected

We recommend downloading this update to make for an improved gaming experience.  On behalf of the whole team here, we’d like to thank you all for your continued patience whilst we’ve been working hard to resolve the problems.  You’ve all been excellent!

And speaking of Devil Survivor Overclocked (in a happy coincidence) I can report that the title is now back in stock.  Those of you who have been waiting for the patch before purchasing this awesome game can purchase both the Poster Edition and the Standard Edition through the Ghostlight Store.  (Please note that all copies will require you to download the patch separately.)

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 installed the patch when I first bought the game and played through the Gin/Haru route, I played through to a new game + and played up to Naoya/Kaido's 8th day, and I completed the battle against Metatron, after Metatron is deterred by the newly awakened Overlord Protag the game freezes, crashes and has not worked the many times I have attempted to get it to work. I really love this game and I hope this isn't a bug and can be solved because all my save files converge at this one battle. Please respond if you know anything!

after installing patch 1.1 and playing another round - some other uncool stuff to report:

1. new game+ Beldr battle. if you play it with only one character (MC) deployed game crashes after Beldr is defeated and MC gets his power. reproduced on two different consoles (3DS and 3DS-XL using different game carts) solution: deploy more characters.

2. new game+ Yuzu Path. Day 8. Saving Midori - Objective requires you to defeat all adversaries. Your Party or Midoris death counts as "failure". But! theres is no Midori on the battlefield. At all. Battle is far to easy thanks to that.

3. new game+ Yuzu Path. Day 8. Saving Kaido - Objective requires you to defeal all, optional - give Kaido your Charger. Again - no Kaido on the Battlefield. And again, battle is very easy thanks to that.

4. new game+ Yuzu Path. Day 8. Last Battle - After taking some beating Belberith says... something. "Something" needs to be translated, as it comes in Jap.

overall - big thanks for patch, worst bugs are gone now, but it will be cool if we get 1.2 some time :D

Just came across a bug this patch does not fix.

When you attempt to analyze a storage card in the middle of battle, the game crashes, and I am thrown out into the 3DS main menu. Is there a fix on the way for this? Cheers

Thank you so much for working so hard to get the patch to us! You took a bad situation and made it right without any faffing about.  Now I can crack on with the  awesome game with no worries~<3

Hmm... I'm really sorry and I hope that was an isolated bug, but after downloading the patch, my 3ds still freeze. This time it was when I "analyzed" a comp during a free battle. Anyone else with that kind of problem ? However, all bugs before the patch are corrected. Many thanks for that ! You made a good job !

Brilliant news- thanks guys! I had been waiting to open my copy of DS:O till the patch came out, and i'm looking forward to breaking into it!

My bad... I think I have to apologize... there isn't any bug or error with the condition "Hero's party die". Its just a misunderstood...

I understood that this condition means "the team of Hero and his two demons die" instead of "Hero, Yuzu, and Atsuru die". So the game works just perfectly (but maybe the explanation of the criteria is pretty vague... "All characters die" or "All allies die" sounds more accurate...)

When I first heard the patch was in development, I checked to see if it was true and then bought the game. It was a silly leap of faith to take, but i felt that a) companies should be rewarded for addressing these problems and b) i really wanted the posters (which look great in my room by the way).

Now they are finally here. Despite some fooling around with region settings, I've got the patch and I'm ready to fall in love with this game all over again. Thanks for not being complete asses and actually keeping us updated (though it's fair to mention some questions were tactically never followed up on) and of course, thanks for making the patch so we could play the game.

Great! That's a very good new! SADLY, I have to report another BUG... it's not a bad bug, though... (In fact it's a too kind bug)

When you start a battle, Victory and Defeat conditions are displayed and if you meets the Defeat condidition it's suposed that you'll see the GAME OVER screen, BUT, that don't happen.

I were playing a battle with the Defeact condition "Hero's party die" and in the first turn, the Hero's party die... and the game still continued... you can continue defeating monsters with the others teams... a few turns after, the other teams died too, so I can't tell what is the result if, at the end of the battle, both Victory and Defeact condition meets

Also, there is no challege at all, if I can stop worrying about the Defeact conditions...

Thanks a lot, guys!

For reference: you can install the patch even if you haven't launched the game yet on your 3DS, which means you can have it installed before first run if you kept it hidden safely away in wait for the patch release.

Thanks for the hard work, hope you guys don't have a situation like this again on future 3DS (or any other) titles.

Also, hope that next month you can give us another update about DS2, and if it has to do with Break Record, then even better.

@juniglee I heard about even the NTSC version having this bug, but it haven't occured to me, yet.

SPOILER ALERT! SPOILER ALERT! SPOILER ALERT! SPOILER ALERT!


The battle was in the theme park when you have to defeat Wendigo to survive (the first time the Death Clock reach 0). At this point, none of the characters nor demons have the skill to resurrect (the only support skill I have is Dia, to restore HP)

What you say was the first thing I thought, but I looked at the booklet and some faqs, just to check if that was a bug or not... if you can't resurrect the hero, his death is GAME OVER, unlike you have this too kind bug...

Noelemahc

@faco In some missions, you don't actually lose until as long as one of your teams can resurrect the hero (no such luck for characters you're supposed to be protecting, though). It would be nice if you would specify the exact scenario you ran into this in.

@TheRealMalek I got a message when i opened the e-store saying there is a patch for one of my games. i think you just need to have it in the 3ds and it will be more or less automatic.

@Steve I can confirm that the Aus e-shop does not have the patch. However, you can change your region settings to the UK (under profile in system settings) and you can get the patch that way. I'm assuming it's because the game never saw Australian release and had to be imported by fans like you and I.

@Steve We were told it should be.  I'll look into it when I get in tomorrow if it's not.

@NintenPilgrim yes it's happened to me twice now. it does not seem to happen all the time, but it does happen. thankfully you don't see them too often.

@faco and then there is the simple way of solving that. Do what you always do in SMT grind grind and grind then they wont die. i was 4 lvls over most monsters throughout the game and i never need to summon or ressurect anything

@Ross Brierley The Aus eshop tends to update once a week, on Thursdays. Will let you know if it's there in about 12 hours.

@faco @Obvius Fault haha yes i mean this game even on normal isnt that hard if you compare it to nocturne so most people should get by. I made my character more or less undefeatable now. I use the auto skill that say i block all damage under 50 and i have the pasive that say i regen 10% helth each turn. i also have his team purely physical crit.

@Obvius Fault thanks, but I already beat that battle. The first time I went "kamikaze-style" and I tried to beat the boss in one turn only with the hero, just to test it... I expected being raped and watch the GAME OVER screen, but the battle continued and I though "WTF!"

The second time, I defeated the minions first, then I placed an ambush to the boss and I won easily in a 3 versus 1 battle
