Devil Summoner: Soul Hackers coming to 3DS in North America in spring 2013

Devil Summoner: Soul Hackers, the 1997 sequel to the Sega Saturn RPG Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Summoner, will be published by Atlus in North America on Nintendo 3DS next spring, the company announced today.

It will be the first time Soul Hackers has been officially localized into English and released in North America. Soul Hackers was originally released in Japan on Saturn in 1997, and a PlayStation port followed in 1999. Atlus released the 3DS version in Japan this past August.

The first-person dungeon crawler takes place in a sci-fi future setting that's a mix of "cyberpunk ... and gothic horror," according to Atlus. As in other Shin Megami Tensei titles, players will be able to fight demons, or use dialogue options in an attempt to bring the enemies into their party. The 3DS version includes an extra dungeon featuring Raidou Kuzunoha, a character from the Devil Summoner spin-off series, as well as 30 new demons, a new opening movie and theme song, updated controls and shorter loading times.

Atlus put out a teaser trailer along with the announcement; you can watch it above.
