Atlus to announce new game at MCM Expo [Update]
posted on 05.24.12 at 08:00 PM EST by (@salromano)
Announcement happens this Saturday, May 26.

Update: Apologies, all. This schedule is not referring to Atlus. It is referring to a company called “Atlas” which we mistook as a misspelling for “Atlus” (it’s happened before). The studios’ Nich Maragos has confirmed this.

Original: Atlus is readying a new game announcement for the London MCM Expo. According to the schedule, on Saturday, May 26 at 3:00 p.m. BST, Atlus will make an exclusive new announcement.

The schedule doesn’t mention whether it’s Atlus Japan or Atlus U.S.A. making the announcement. Atlus doesn’t have a European branch, so I can’t see an Atlus U.S.A. localization announcement happening. Nor would I picture Atlus Japan announcing a new game at a London comic expo. It’s possible Atlus U.S.A. is teaming up with a European publisher, such as Ghostlight, to announce a European localization of one of their Japanese games.

Stay tuned. The wait is only two days.

Thanks, 3DSTribe.

    Hope it’s Persona 5 or a new Shin Megami Tensei game. Either one would be awesome.

      @Chaos Raiden: They would likely announce that in Japan before England.

    I really really hope they confirm Soul Hackers for an european release or something. That would make my day, srsl.

        @whiteferrero: You forget the 3DS is region locked. Stupid Nintendo blocking our 3DS’s =(

            @whiteferrero:
            Oh but guise, after I posted that a friend of mine brought this to my attention: Persona 4 the Golden hasn’t been announced for Europe just yet, so that may as well be it instead of Soul Hackers (it’s actually more likely.

            I’m pretty certain Ghostlight will give us Soul Hackers in the future, though.

    Yeah, my guess is the new game is just a localization announcement.
