Atlus appreciation topic

I appreciate Atlus.

For Europeans, you should know that Atlus doesn't have an EU division, which is why a certain company (Night-somethingorwhatever) publishes their games a year or so afterwards. Waiting a year for localizations is horrible, but waiting 2-3 years is worse.

I love Atlus. And I will continue to as long as SMT IV doesn't play like Strange Journey did.

Atlus suck. They hate Europe and I hate them. Hopefully more companies see the light and give games to competent companies rather than them, like they did with Dark Souls. Best decision ever to not give it to them, meant every one got it in decent time.


They seem pretty indifferent to Europe. I tried telling them about the problems, but the only thing that happened was Atlus shrugged.


Which is why I and many others suggest that people from Europe import consoles and all games from North America. It's cheaper, and you'll get many games Europe doesn't get, while only missing out on a handful of games that Europe gets and that North America doesn't.

Not just the 3DS. They are finally doing a console SMT game and for the Wii U no less.

Atlus, thank you for for Odin Sphere, Nocturne, The Strange Journey, Devil Survivor 1 and 2, and of course, Persona! Post Persona 2 anyway...

But dang it, Atlus. I signed up for your Atlus Faithful program, and what do I get in my e-mails? Announcements of games and pre-orders for the 3DS :/ Are you trying to make me regret buying a Vita? *chuckles in exasperation*


There was that one ad for Godmode though.

I've only ever played the Trauma series, but they are awesome games, enough to make love Atlus. I just wish they would give the 3DS some Trauma love.

With that attitude you might as well hate every Japanese company as well since they don't bring tons of games outside of Japan...

Point being, it's silly. These places right or wrong make decisions based on where they think they can sell the most. It's not because "they hate Europe".


Disagree. Atlus hate Europe. Persona 4 arena, perfect example.

Region lock it, claim it's to stop reverse importing from America to Japan. Yet they still lock Europe out. It's not all or nothing on the consoles, they could have quite easily made the Japanese version, Japan only and the American version, everyone except Japan. No reverse importing and no screw job on Europe.

Persona 4 area again. Had a publisher nearly straight away, huge delay on it. Why? Atlus can't be bothered to give Zen united the EU build.

NIS America don't either, and they self publish here. Also see above about persona 4. The whole, don't have an EU division excuse doesn't work for that one.

Where are these much cheaper games? I keep asking everytime this comes up and no one wants to tell me :(.

3DS games are 29.99 here ($45). Games in the US are $40. So to make any saving it has to be free shipping and every single one has to come though customs without getting caught for VAT.
