Shinobi is reporting that a 3DS version of Soul Hackers has been announced by Atlus in this week's Famitsu. According to him, the game will have full voice acting and other new features. It's scheduled for release on August 30.

It'll be localized. Atlus doesn't pass on anything related to Shin Megami Tensei these days.

Atlus has localized all of their recent SMT titles, including both Persona 2 remakes on PSP. I don't really see why this one would be an exception...

I don't know about that. Didn't Atlus want to release the PSP version, but couldn't because of Sony?

Yeah, Atlus even translated Innocent Sin for the PSP last year. There's no reason why they shouldn't translate a game on a much healthier system.

Atlus USA has a terrible track record localizing SMT ports/remakes on Nintendo handhelds...

Even considering how bad they turned out I would have loved to have SMT on the GBA

That was the first Devil Summoner game, but yes, as I recall, that was what happened.

Those came out before SMT really had any presence in the States, so it's not surprising. I'd look to the fact that we got Strange Journey, and all of the Devil Survivor games, including the unnecessary 3DS remake... we're clearly going to get this.

They couldn't have done that game if they wanted to. It was just a rom running in a Saturn emulator.

According to their forums there were some technical problems with localizing it.

And the remixed version of SMT Nocturne that replaced Dante with Raidou, which was a bonus when Devil Summoner 2 came out...

Though really, nobody would have wanted that.

So do any of these Megami Tensei games NOT have extremely micro-management heavy Pokémon subgames?

I LOVE everything else about them, I just can't enjoying PLAYING them because of that.

Persona 2 has lists to summon from. But you have to grind cards with the nego system to have enough cards to summon said demons from the list.

Posting from the future, are we? In the time period I live in, an announcement for Eternal Punishment PSP for NA hasn't been made yet. (Not saying it won't, just saying it hasn't.)

Also, could we finally get Soul Hackers here in English? That's sure be swell.

Hmm. Not sure.

I would sell many bloods to have a version of Nocturne where you can just use standard player characters.

Atlus re-releasing their older games is hardly something they've only started doing in the past few years, though. It's been something they've been doing with the franchise since the 90s.

This is totally fine with me until they run out of unlocalized titles. So I'll be happy for another decade or so.

I don't get it, this announcement means we are getting it in English. The record (and logic) speaks for itself.
