AND ON THE EIGHTH DAY: ATLUS BRINGS EXPANDED, ENHANCED SMT: DEVIL SURVIVOR OVERCLOCKED FOR NINTENDO 3DS TO NORTH

IRVINE, CALIFORNIA -- JANUARY 26, 2011 -- Atlus U.S.A., Inc. today officially announced a North American release for  Shin Megami Tensei®: Devil Survivor Overlocked™, an RPG/SRPG hybrid for Nintendo 3DS™ currently scheduled to launch on the highly anticipated handheld in Summer 2011. 

Considered one of the best RPGs of 2009*, the original Devil Survivor presented gamers with a novel premise: Tokyo is in full lockdown, the government's swift, coldblooded response to a surprise demon invasion.  While you and your friends must solve the nature of the interdimensional rift through which the horrific creatures are entering your world, saving the world is not your highest priority; staying alive, on the other hand, is.

Expanded and enhanced, Devil Survivor Overclocked for Nintendo 3DS builds upon the game's original release with the addition of voice acting for the entirety of the game's lengthy, unconventional narrative.  Moreover, that very story, already boasting multiple endings based on critical decisions by the player, now concludes with a special eighth chapter, a rousing epilogue for Shin Megami Tensei fans.  The game's beautifully remastered hand drawn artwork and character portraits benefit from the new system's higher resolution screens, offering players a crisper, higher fidelity experience.

SMT: Devil Survivor Overclocked is currently scheduled to launch on Nintendo 3DS in Summer 2011.  More details will be made available at a later date.  Look for the game's official website to launch at http://www.atlus.com/devilsurvivor3ds
