In a pretty shocking move by until now budget only Midas Interactive they have picked up the UK rights to Shin Megami Tenshi: Nocturne and could be here as soon as late May/early June under the name Shin Megami Tenshi: Lucifer's Call.

While I think Dante being in it made this happen it great news nonetheless.

:lol:

Agreed. I'm surprised by the name change too. Lucifer isn't even a character, he's a thing you ingest to give you special powers

(The churchies will love that!)

Regardless, fantastic news that you're getting the game! :clap:

Blame retarded marketing departments of the publishers who are responsible for making these sorts of stupid changes, and usually do them because they think it'll make the game more sellable.

Degital Devil Sega has been planned for xmas UK release too.

Rename is not as strange as it first appears because the game Nocturn (PC) is by rival budget publisher.

Curiously, searching for Nocturn on Amazon UK brings up Lucifer's Call aka Shin Megami Tensei: Nocturne altough the cover has the renamed title.

You can email Midas and ask. But otherwise, I've only heard it of someone else who emailed them.

Having Dante in the game was already pretty bad.. but having him on the actual cover is just awful. I mean, what's the big deal if many people havent heard of MegaTen before? they don't need to slap on some type of "cool" character from a completely different type of game just so the casual gamers can take notice. Hell, even the UK got Maken Shao and NA didnt.

Anything to help the sells of a RPG in the UK is a plus point in my view, the more people that buy this game will help future RPG releases in the future. Let's face it the main reason there bringing over is to ride the success of DMC.

They arent related other than sharing a few enemies. Basically games like Digital Devil Saga, Maken X, Persona, and Demi Kids are all kind of "within" the Shin Megami universe because they all share the theme of demons. In some games you recruit demons to fight alongside you. In others, you actually are the demons fighting against other demons.

Hmm... well despite earlier stories according to Gamepress.com the game is being published by UBI Soft not Midas Interactive as believed. I'm for one thankful it's in better hands with UBI Soft.

Regardless of who's publishing it, be happy you're getting it.

I'm happy, but Midas are known for hacking.
