Just got the Atlus faithful newsletter, dated the day P2: Innocent Sin was released in Japan. Good news incoming?

I'm imagining this going over many people's heads, to be honest. Or maybe not since it does kind of stand out.

"Absolutely no new games releasing today in Japan" made me laugh though.

The whole newsletter is funny, with a "fan editorial" on Which is Better?: Playstation or Nintendo 64, and news pieces on Ogre Battle 64 and Tail Concerto.

And really, "Looks like there really isn't anything new out in Japan to talk about"...what else can it be?

Actually, the wiki page has it releasing as the 24th, but I can't see the source for that. It still can only apply to P2.

Yeah, just got this and thought the same thing.

Day one.

"Last time, we asked you, "Is there anything you regret that you wish you could go back and redo?"

hahaha.

They could, but they'll probably do some sort of "unveiling" of it at E3, if anything. Like announce it and say "you'll first see it at our E3 booth." Or whatever.

Totally, all this effort just to insert a joke about "oooh, there's nothing coming out the week of June 23 1999, of course not!"

Quick - some tiny website needs to ask Atlus if they're releasing this, so they can say they have "No plans." The internet can freak out about/misunderstand it, and Atlus will have to quickly follow up with a real announcement. Just like with Catherine!

Also, no Saturn? Fail. Atlus even had Saturn games!


Uh. One or two.

Would it really make sense to announce a PSP game at E3? It would likely get lost in the coverage of everything else...

pretty much anything Atlus would announce is going to get "lost" in the coverage of everything else

Even though I beat the game with the fan translation, I think I will buy this only to support Atlus.

Even though Michelle is a name for a girl, I think it fits better for him. Lisa will also be able to call him out on that in the US release :) .

No. The writing is generally better than P3 and P4 as well.

agreed. P3 and P4 prove that character development and personality can happen to a fault.

though the gameplay in P1 and both P2 games is too outdated for me to enjoy.
