The European release date for Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor Overlocked has been bumped up a week from its original April 5 launch, and will now be available for 3DS on March 29, according to a blog post from PAL region publisher Ghostlight.

The tactical role-playing game, an enhanced port of the 2009 DS original, was initially hinted at by Japanese publisher and developer Atlus at E3 2010 as another entry into the Shin Megami Tensei series. The game, announced later as Devil Survivor, launched in North America in August 2011 and in Japan the following month.

The game adds several new features, including full voice-acting, additional content for the main storyline, overhauled and improved graphics and various difficulty settings. The game also features 150 different demons to encounter, whereas the original title sported only 130. Pre-ordering Devil Survivor Overclocked through Ghostlight's official website will net buyers two free posters featuring artwork from the title.

A sequel, Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor 2, was released for Nintendo DS in Japan in August 2011 and in North America last month. The title does not yet have a release date for European territories.
