Is Atlus USA Needy, Or Is It Announcing Something Soon?

doyoustilllikeus.jpg

Last night, Atlus sent a new email out to their Faithful, consisting of nothing but a big, pink rectangle and the words, "Do you still like us?" While it's possible that they were just suffering from a quick bout of insecurity, the lack of "Check yes or no" implies there's probably a deeper meaning here. The shade of pink they used is pretty much exactly the same one used on the box art and other artwork for Catherine, the Persona team's latest game, which was released in Japan just a few weeks ago. Although the game's garnered a ton of attention here from all the sexy and the sheep that have popped up in trailers, up until now there still hasn't been any confirmation of a release outside Japan. Based on this note, I think it wouldn't be terribly surprising if that changes in the next few days. Welcome, but not a shock.

While the pink seems pretty convincing to me, I suppose it could just be a red herring, and the company is set to reveal a different game. I'd love to get some news about Persona 2 Portable coming over here, although that one still has a month to go before it's out in Japan. That's just one other possibility; I'm sure there are piles of games just begging for a quality localization from the company. I'm sure we'll all get an answer soon enough.

The question, font, color all scream Catherine, so either they're announcing that, or they're being irredeemably trolly today.

This is definitely a Catherine announcement. It's just the right time for them to start "officially" building hype in the West, now that it's out in Japan.

-Start- building hype in the west?

I've been obsessed about Catherine since I saw the first screenshots!!!

I doubt they ever had this much hype over one of their game!

The shock I had when I saw this in my e-mails!!! Right after they said it would not be released. You're being mean, Atlus!

Yes, Atlus, I still like you, now give me my Catherine! And Persona 5!

Well I was going to comment here how I also think it's Catherine but I think it is to late for that since it is true because of the email I got.

NowI just need Persona 5 and I will be happy.

And girls who like girls who like rumble packs!
