Turn-based PS2 RPG Shin Megami Tensei is to get a release in Europe after all and could be with us as soon as next month, according to a statement from publisher Midas passed on to Eurogamer.

"Our company called Ghostlight has acquired the European rights for SMT," the statement says. "We are calling the game 'Shin Megami Tensei: Lucifer's Call."

The game is the third title in the SMT series and is already out in the US and Japan, titled Shin Megami Tensei: Nocturne. It follows the adventures of a teenage boy, haunted by mysterious visions, who finds himself trapped in the demon-filled ruins of Tokyo after the destruction of the world. As you do.

"We have secured the full version of the game as was released in Japan and US under the 'Maniacs' edition," Midas confirms. "This is the version that includes Dante from Devil May Cry 2."

SMT will be the first title published by Ghostlight, a new subsidiary of the company. It is currently negotiating contracts to publish a range of other titles, and sales and distribution deals also need to be worked out.

Shin Megami Tensei: Lucifer's Call will "be in the shops by late May [or] early June", according to Midas.
