Atlus releases Soul Hackers for 3DS

Nintendo 3DS owners can now begin exploring Amami City as video game publisher Atlus releases the cyberpunk and gothic horror RPG Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Summoner: Soul Hackers (Soul Hackers for short). Originally released in 1997 only for the Japanese markets, the new release of Soul Hackers is exclusive to the Nintendo 3DS and is available for $39.99. Pre-orders and gamers who purchase the first printing of the title at launch will receive a limited edition music CD, which consists of six fan-voted tracks that are inspired by the original Soul Hackers soundtrack. (3DS, Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Summoner: Soul Hackers)

Sounds interesting, what's the 3DS like for importing games etc.. are the games region free? Is it possible to get anything to allow to play imported stuff?

region locked unfortunately. if u live in Australia like i do u can import stuff from Europe and it'll work. shitty thing is Atlus games seem to take ages to come to euro........still waiting on persona 4 arena.......

For some strange reason Nintendo doesn't allow games to be played in different regions so the 3DS is not region free.

On the bright side many of the games on 3DS do get localized so eventually games from Japan will make it over. Probably due to the immense popularity of the system.

don't worry Atlus tends to localize their games when it comes to DS and 3DS.

is this the first one in the series never played before?

Nope is the second one, however its not connected to the First Devil Summoner besides the Protagonist and his partners being secret bosses. Its to tally stand alone.

That's a vague question, if you mean first in the Shin Megami series then no it is not. If you mean first as in the devil summoner series it is not as well, it's the second game in the devil summoner series. All of the Shin Megami games are stand alone so you don't have to experience one to know what happens in the other.
