Atlus 2023

Japanese developers have always made a habit of teasing their plans at the start of a new year, and we dare say that Atlus is being the biggest tease of all. In a New Year's statement to Famitsu (as reported by Persona Central) the outfit behind the Persona series says that it's "preparing several unannounced titles" for the 12 months ahead. Interesting.

This is, of course, in addition to the PS4 ports of Persona 3 Portable and Persona 4 Golden, which release later this month on the 19th January.

If you'll remember, near the end of last year, Atlus actually went public with its regret in not being able to live up to expectations for Persona's 25th anniversary. Previously, the developer had promised a parade of announcements, but the reality is that we got notified about a bunch of merch, Japan-only events, and the aforementioned ports. It was all a bit of a bust.

We would assume that Atlus' partially scuppered plans will carry through into 2023. Hopefully it can get back on top of things and give us a good reason to be excited in the near future.
