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.
