With the release less than a month away, a new trailer has popped up for the 3DS port of Atlus’ Sega Saturn RPG Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Summoner: Soul Hackers. So far it looks like the developer is doing very little to alter the vintage turn-based feel, with all the list-heavy battles, laborious item maintenance, and lovely anime artwork remaining intact. It should be interesting to see how an RPG with stationary image battles can hold up in today’s climate of sprawling spectacle and scope.
As someone who is still feeling his way through the Saturn library I have not yet gotten to try this one out. Are any of my fellow Sega Addicts revved to revisit another one of Atlus’ Shin Megami Tensei classics when it gets released in the US on April 16th?
