Soul Hackers delivers a first-person, dungeon-crawling RPG experience set in a future where technology and otherworldly forces meet in a macabre fusion of cyberpunk futurism and gothic horror. A first-person sci-fi RPG epic, Soul Hackers tells of a city held up as a beacon of humanity's triumph of technology, but with an infernal secret. In this would-be utopia, a group of hackers takes on a centuries-old mystic society, and a battle for control over humanity's fate is about to begin.

In the classic tradition of Shin Megami Tensei, players will have the compelling choice throughout their dungeon exploration to fight the enemy demons they encounter, or negotiate with them in an attempt to turn them into allies and teammates. Soul Hackers on 3DS includes access to 30 additional demons, a new opening animation movie and theme song, improved controls, and quicker loading times. Additionally players can use the 3DS' bottom screen as an auto-mapping function, and engage a COMP hack to change difficulty levels on the fly and fill out maps without walking through. After clearing the game initially, the 3DS version of Soul Hackers also delivers an extra dungeon, where players will witness the appearance of Raidou Kuzunoha from the previous Devil Summoner games.

This is good news! Another good game that will make me want to get the 3DS eventually.

It's really sad that a smaller developer like Atlus can manage to release JRPGs in the US but a company such as Square Enix can't announce Bravely Default: Flying Fairy and Final Fantasy: Type-0 for a US release.

And Bravely Default is getting a sequel in Japan!

I think Squeenix over bloated. Acquired too many companies and doesn't know what kind of company it is anymore. Is sad.

Yeah, no kidding, I want to at least know if they are still working on getting Type-0 over here.

Bravely Default is kind of expected since it was only just released in Japan a couple of months ago but SE has no excuse for not releasing Type-0 yet. The game came out over a year ago now in Japan. I would buy that game day one and the CE if it had one.

This.

Of course, then the naysayers will start crying about how the Vita doesn't need any more ports.

Nice!

I would have expected it on Vita over 3DS, but at least I'll keep both relevant in 2013! I was feeling like I would neglect the 3DS once I finished my current game.

I'm confused about this, shouldn't this be on the Vita? I mean, babies aren't going to know how to play this.

That trailer looks great. I can see where the 3D effect can come in to play really nicely.

Well hopefully Atlus will bring more games to the Vita if P4 did well. I'd prefer every handheld game on the Vita but I'll be happy to get it on the 3DS rather than not at all : )

I need a 3DS.

That's good, but where the hell is Eternal Punishment?

In reply to an earlier post on Dec 19, 2012 11:18:58 AM PST
But if it were on the Vita, nobody would be able to play it.

In reply to an earlier post on Dec 19, 2012 11:22:20 AM PST
So babies > nobody?

I believe Eternal Punishment got a PSP version in Japan only.

In reply to an earlier post on Dec 19, 2012 11:30:37 AM PST
Which is why I'm asking where the localization is.

Exactly!

Sparhawk says:
More like SMT: Strange Journey. Or Nocturne. The battles will be first-person dungeon crawling instead of grid-based tactics.

Not that it's bad, but it is a lil' different from Devil Survivor. I hope there's a non-automap function because Etrian Odyssey made me fall in love with digital graph paper...
