Atlus is back! And it's got a slightly tweaked logo as well. Do you like it or hate it?

Some commenters on game forum NeoGAF do not like it. "Please be April fools," wrote GAF commenter Kulapik. "It's hideous."

This isn't April Fools' as Kotaku previously reported that Atlus, as a corporate entity, was being reborn on April 1st. This seems to be part of that. (That is, unless this is an April Fools' joke, which it doesn't appear to be.)

As FluxWaveZ on NeoGAF noted, the logo is now on the company's official Japanese Twitter, Facebook, and the Persona Channel website:


There were also comments that the new logo looked too simple or too compressed.

Other GAF users weren't too fussed, saying there was barely a difference and this didn't even matter. There were those who even dug it. What about you? Do you prefer the new logo? Or do you like the old one better?
