If too much Dante from Devil May Cry is never enough for you, then relief will soon be at hand. Ubisoft will be releasing Shin Megami Tensei: Lucifer's Call locally, a Japanese developed RPG that features the half-demon games superstar.

Ubisoft will release the game in Australia and New Zealand by the end of June. Lucifer's Call is actually the third installment in the successful Shin Megami Tensei series which first appeared on Nintendo' Super Famicom. Shin Megami Tensei: Lucifer's Call is based on the Premium "Maniax" edition of the game. It features a special appearance of Dante from Capcom's blockbuster series Devil May Cry.

According to a release from Ubisoft, the game is "set in post-apocalyptic Tokyo, after the entire world's population has been nearly almost totally annihilated by a global catastrophe called the Conception. The Demonic forces have now invaded the Earth. The fate of the planet lies on the shoulders of one boy, who must battle his way through opposing demonic forces and shape the world to come... or destroy it. In his quest, the young hero will face more than 100 different species of demons all of which can be recruited in your quest to build the most powerful team. These allies can also be fused together so as to create new demons. The hero will also have to use the power of Magatama, living parasites that grant him with demonic powers."

The entire game will be localised in English, French and German and is planned to be released end June at the suggested price of AU$79.95/NZ$89.95rrp.
