Shin Megami Tensei IV: Apocalypse's localization slip-up makes for a good story

Tales from localization are some of the most entertaining around in this industry. Today's comes from Atlus in light of the recently-released Shin Megami Tensei IV: Apocalypse, and I like it for two reasons. One, it involves a slip-up. It's...   read

Review: Shin Megami Tensei IV: Apocalypse

You could say I like Shin Megami Tensei. I mean, the original name (Megami Tensei), essentially translates to "Rebirth of the Goddess," so you know there's going to be religious undertones afoot. A story framed around the battle o...   read

Persona 5 is coming to Dragon's Dogma Online

Persona 5 is out in Japan right now, lucky ducks. And Atlus is strutting -- especially with Final Fantasy XV delayed until the end of November. I just wonder if it won't affect Tokyo Game Show attendance. Atlus is working with some major J...   read

I'm completely obsessed with this Japanese PS4 Slim trailer

The PlayStation 4 Slim is launching on September 15. Persona 5 is also launching on September 15. Somehow I don't think that's a coincidence. So how do you adequately advertise the biggest game of the month and the launch of a new cons...   read

With the recent news that Persona 5 would be debut on the same day in both Europe and the U.S, I was hoping that the days of having delays for Atlus’ games imposed on European and Australian fans would be over. Sadly, this does not se...   read

Maid cafes CONFIRMED for Persona 5

One of my favorite things about playing RPGs set in Japan (before I was able to visit for myself last year for the first time!) is wandering the streets and learning new customs. The Yakuza series (minus the egregious cuts for 3) was r...   read

Fire Emblem was originally going to crossover with Pokemon before Conquest ruined it

We heard so little about Tokyo Mirage Sessons #FE over the course of its development that some of us feared it was canceled, but it had undergone a number of changes before it actually came out the way it did (which was good, by the way!). ...   read

Opinion: Persona 5's delicate balancing act

In just over a month, Persona 5 will grace those lucky future folk over in Japan. School will be skipped, Famitsu will be 100/100'ing, and socials will be linked. Unfortunately, as my understanding of the Japanese language doesn't reach muc...   read

Persona 5 battle-wear is my fetish

If the demo is any indication, The King of Fighters XIV is destined for great things

I'm glad King of Fighters (and by proxy, SNK) is still in the fighting game discussion. It's had a long, long hiatus since XIII was released back in 2010 (which was a massive improvement on XII), and because a new collective of owners has r...   read
