Atlus Has a Major Project in the Works
Atlus Product Manager Shinjiro Takada just hinted something big to the gaming community. According to Takada, they have a major project currently in the works. According to the dev, they are working on a new game that they hope will be a “pillar” for the studio moving forward.
Although Takada did not provide any further information about what this upcoming title is going to be, he revealed that the project will be “interesting and satisfying” for everyone.
“I chose the word ‘challenge’ as the keyword for 2022, with the hope that we will be able to release a game that could potentially become a pillar for Atlus,” Takada stated. “The staff are currently hard at work to develop this game so that it will be interesting and enjoyable to everyone.”
Atlus is the same studio that gave the gaming world Shin Megami Tensei 5 and Persona 5. Considering the success of these games, Atlus has proven that they are, indeed, capable of catering to multiple audiences without losing sight of the appeal of the original concept.
The development team of Atlus is comprised of multiple divisions. The department that was part of the interview was the studio’s Creative Department. This team happens to be the one that came up with the Shin Megami Tensei titles and Etrian Odyssey. With that said, some fans became hopeful that Takada’s hint could be suggesting the return of Etrian Odyssey. After all, the title has already been previously announced but with no further updates on its development. Still, there is the possibility that it could be an entirely different project altogether.
Either way, Atlus definitely has something big planned for 2022. Longtime fans of the studio are well aware of their excellent portfolio of games. They have nothing to worry about in that regard.
