It seems that Atlus USA has been kicking ass and taking names lately, and this new announcement shows that they have no intentions of stopping.
Their newest venture is called Atlus Online, a new online division and web portal. They have yet to announce any games, but I’m sure we’ll hear something very soon.
“Atlus has long wanted to create an online portal that would become the daily destination for anyone looking for a fresh and engaging online entertainment experience,” said Shinichi Suzuki, president and CEO.
“Atlus Online will emerge as an extremely user-focused destination that is fully accessible to each and every one of its members. From amazing games to play to exciting contests, exceptional content and great community interaction, we are convinced that Atlus Online will be a premiere interactive entertainment destination for online gamers and anime fans alike.”
When this all goes live, the intent is to launch globally. For now, Atlus is encouraging fans to sign up now, giving them the opportunity to help shape this new venture.
