Devil Summoner is officially on its way to U.S. shores! We can look forward to this cool RPG for the Saturn sometime this summer.The great thing about this title is that the theme isn't your run-of-the-mill Swords-and-Ogres adventure. It involves tons and tons of demons, spirits and allround evil stuff.
In Devil Summoner, you have the unique ability to speak to the monsters before you fight, which occasionally allows you to talk your way out of bat-tles.This awesome feature hasn't been used in an RPG game since the classic Phantasy Star on the Sega iMaster system! You can recruit monsters to join you and combine different attacks with magic and monsters, as well as creating new monsters.You navigate ryour character in first-person 3-D and battle in the traditional .nonster lineup formation.
It would be nice if you could see your onscreen character during battles and whilst walking about. Also, the monsters could use more animation, but the detailed way they're drawn makes up for this shortcoming.
It looks like the majority of the controversial stuff will be retained, as well as the dark nature of the story (You can do it, Brian!).We'll keep an eye on this gem and update you with the latest developments.
