George Kamitani's female character designs for Dragon's Crown have received a rather surprising amount of attention -- that's ... that's still going on, isn't it? -- but at least for the game's box art, the presentation is fa... more
I bought a coffee table earlier this year. I big, shiny, attractive one. Never had one before, but I knew I needed one for all of these beautiful videogame art books I've been collecting. I've got lots of Japanese imports, a ... more
This is NOT AN APRIL FOOL'S DAY JOKE. Repeat: This is not an April Fool's Day Joke. If it was, faces would be bloodied.
Atlus has confirmed with us that the next game in the Shin Megami Tensei role-playing game series is fina... more
I'm not all too familiar with the Shin Megami Tensei series or its spinoffs. Bad me, right? What I do know is that Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Summoner: Raidou Kuzunoha vs. The Soulless Army is the one of the longest, most obsc... more

A game's box art doesn't seem quite as s... more
If you haven't heard of God Mode before, you'd probably surprised to hear that Atlus is publishing a Western third-person shooter. That's a far cry from the company's norm of working on obscure Japanese titles and creati... more
Some of the early entries in Atlus' yearly Halloween costume contest, Atlus-o-Weenie, are pretty impressive. The top prize is technically a $300 Amazon gift card, but it's obvious that the real prize here is bragging rights. ... more
Despite the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise being run into the ground, 17th-century pirates are still really cool. Not those Somalian, modern-day pirates -- those guys suck. But if plundering the seas is the thin... more

SMT expert Dale North is unavailable this morning, so he sent an email demanding somebody run this. You might as well be talking about advanced Peruvian dining tips for as much as I understand this stuff, but here goes!
In case you needed another reason to be hyped up for the North American release of Persona 4 Golden, Atlus have some preorder bonuses in store for fans. They're including a free P4G-themed Vita skin with p... more
Here it is: the Persona 4 Golden box art. Nice, isn't it? I'm going to enjoy it now, because after I get my copy I'll never see that box front again. I cannot wait for this bad boy to get inside of my Vita. Yes, I've played t... more
I really can't get enough of Persona 4 Arena. It was my favorite game that I was fortunate enough to check out at E3 this year, and it's the game I'm looking forward to more than anything else this year. I have no idea what e... more

Persona 4 was so friendly, love-sim-y and kind of gay in places, so this newly revealed box art for Persona 4 Arena throws me off a bit. I mean, I like it well enough. I'm totally digging the creeper eye that Teddy is giving ... more
In case you were thinking that Persona 4 Arena's character selection might be a little thin, there's no need to worry, because a new challenger has appeared. Her name is Labrys, and her giant axe has jet engines on it.
With its TV adaptation and a game on the way, fans of George R. R. Martin's fantasy series have more than enough opportunity to hate latecomers. I've had plenty of conversations that ended with "Wait, you've only now he... more

Upcoming PSP game Persona 2: Innocent Sin will come with a soundtrack CD packed with new tunes from series composer Shoji Meguro, but if you want a copy Atlus says that you'll want to put in a pre-order for the game.
This morning we learned of a newly launched website for Persona 2: Innocent Sin, a PSP port of the PlayStation RPG that just recently came to Japan. It is now confirmed for North America this Fall. Now we have more informatio... more
[Update: Altus Japan has posted a new trailer for Devil Survivor 2 on YouTube.]
It still blows my mind that Atlus decided to make Devil Survivor's sequel a DS game, and not a 3DS game. Still, I'm quite excited for this releas... more

Upcoming Xbox 360, PC and PS3 2-player cop-op action game The Cursed Crusade looks good. The trailer Atlus has up on their teaser page excites -- rousing music, slashing swords, in-your-face action, realistic vistas. The... more
It took a while, but the hype machine for Atlus' sexy new action-puzzler Catherine had recently (and finally) shifted into "providing actual gameplay details" mode. Screens were shot, copy was written, and...let's just say th... more
I'm largely apathetic towards Xbox LIVE Achievements and PS3 Trophies, though I certainly don't mind earning a few for a little extra effort. Just a little (sorry, Dead Rising 2's "Zombie Genocider").
However, it's moments li... more

Yeah, I don't have it in me today. You'll get no clever medical tie-in within this write up. I was almost feeling a headline like Scrub In For New Screens from Trauma Team or something like that. I killed that before it happe... more
