After dabbling with ocean exploration and a traversable overworld in the previous two entries, Etrian Odyssey V: Beyond the Myth takes Atlus’ first-person dungeon crawler back to its roots. It’s five player-created characters adventuring their asses off.
Atlus has filed a Digital Millennium Copyright Act takedown against the creators of the Playstation 3 emulator RPCS3, previously noted for running Persona 5. With the emulator, the game would be playable on PC, which doesn’t officially run the game.
Atlus and Vanillaware’s collaboration 13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim was officially announced at the 2015 Tokyo Game Show. Check out the latest trailer, released today in Tokyo.
It looks like Dragon’s Crown is headed to the PS4 as Dragon’s Crown Pro. At least, if these reports of a pre-Tokyo Game Show leak are to be believed.
Maybe you forgot that Atlus, the creators of Persona, are now owned by Sega, the makers of Sonic. Well, the internet got a terrible reminder of this fact yesterday, and it’s hilarious.
Tipster Cody Brown directed our attention to a“Complete Bundle” for this week’s Rock of Ages 2, which includes Atlus’ boulder-rolling strategy sequel plus the original game. The listing says it’s playable on the PS4. That’s half right.
“If you hold on life won’t change.”
Atlus has announced that Etrian Odyssey V: Beyond the Myth for 3DS arrives in North America on October 17. The launch edition of the game comes with a music CD and 24-page art book. To celebrate the release date, enjoy a video of the Fencer’s nameplate and state page in action.
Atlus revealed that Persona 3 Dancing Moon Night and Persona 5 Dancing Star Night are headed to the PS4 and the Vita next spring in Japan.
There’s a Persona 5 anime coming. Atlus announced it earlier today. It’s called Persona 5 the Animation and there’s already a short trailer.
While the main event continues today, AnimEvo is going strong with its many side tournaments, including the puzzle game Catherine.
In April, we posted a video of Persona 5 running quite poorly on the PC via an emulator. Now, only a few months later, it’s looking fantastic.
In case you were worried about the state of JRPGs on the Nintendo 3DS, Atlus just announced not one but three new games coming to the console in late 2017/early 2018—Etrian Odyssey V: Beyond the Myth, Radiant Historia: Perfect Chronology, and Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey Redux.
In 2015 Vanillaware revealed 13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim, the latest very pretty game from Dragon’s Crown and Odin Sphere director George Kamitani. Today Atlus announced it will be localizing and releasing the PS4/Vita game in the West. The game’s Japanese release date is still TBA, so expect it sometime after that.
When PlayStation Korea uploaded the Persona 5 title sequence for the game’s upcoming release in the country, fans noticed something: Ryuji Sakamoto’s shoes.
Has a song ever made you buy a video game? I might have never picked up Nippon Ichi Software’s 2003 tactics RPG Disgaea: Hour of Darkness if not for the punk rock tune Atlus decided to use for the U.S. translation.
