Atlus, I applaud you. Even if you're kind of a jerk. A lovable jerk. People the world over patiently waited for your NicoNico broadcast today. They abided the 72 hour countdown, suffered countless teaser videos, and stared at the clock as it slowly wound down. Fans pined desperately for a mere glimpse of Persona 5. And you delivered. But only after trolling your faithful acolytes one last time.

The clock finally strikes zero. It's the middle of the night. Out comes an elderly woman in a pantsuit. Okay, that's chill. She seems pretty amusing. Heh. Well, that is until she announces footage of a new Persona game is being shown in the streets of Akihabara below. She blocks the screen, of course, swaying back and forth just enough to let you know it's there. The snickers of cameramen and production staff can be heard in the background as the tirade grows increasingly lengthy and ridiculous. 

At long last the stump speech comes to and end and we see... Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth? Well, that's certainly different. But I'm sure it will be great. And, after all, the Nintendo 3DS is all the rage in Japan. Then Atlus unveils Persona 4: Dancing All Night. Okay, that's kind of weird. Still, I'm totally down.

But where's Persona 5? Suddenly, "55.555" rolls across the screen. The internet explodes. It's coming. It's finally coming. Winter 2014 can't arrive soon enough.

Can you think of a more manipulative, toying game announcement in recent memory?

Review: Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth

Some concoctions will leave you feeling sick to your stomach. You need look no further than Yukiko Amagi's culinary misadventures for proof of that. Other pairings seem to work far better than they probably should, like Atlus...more

Etrian Odyssey Untold 2 opening film is just stunning

Etrian Odyssey Untold II: The Knight of Fafnir may be crawling to Nintendo 3DS in Japan next week, but we still haven't heard anything about Atlus USA's plans for a western release.  Maybe we'll learn something after Persona Q comes stateside later this month. In the meantime, check out the Untold II's opening movie, courtesy of animation studio Madhouse. It's so pretty!more
