Review: The King of Fighters XIV

Since I’ve been writing for Japanator for almost a year now, some of you may already know I’m a big King of Fighters fan and it’s one of the first series I ever played as a child. Even since then I haven’t missed a s...

Review: Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE

When Nintendo first announced a crossover project between their Fire Emblem series and Atlus' Shin Megami Tensei series, no one expected the final project to a videogame where pop idols transform into heroes in order to fight monsters comin...

Here's E3's good and bad news about Persona 5

A lot of folks weren't expecting much Persona 5-related news out of E3, as these kinds of reveals are typically reserved for Japan-based events, but lo and behold, the company held an E3 demo stream of the game, showing off gameplay as well...

Try out Odin Sphere's long-lost 8-bit ancestor

I've always said that the games of Vanillaware feel like they came from an alternate history where 2D graphics continued to reign supreme instead of being supplanted by ever more realistic 3D tech. Now, with Odin Sphere Leifthrasir bei...

Review: Odin Sphere Leifthrasir

Vanillaware may have been making games for close to a decade now, but for my money, nothing they've made has quite surpassed their first game*, Odin Sphere.  Not to say that their other games are bad. On the contrary, as far as making ...

So I translated that new Persona 5 trailer

It took the newest trailer for Persona 5 to make me break my self-imposed media blackout about the game. After all, I already knew I wanted the damn thing, so I didn't need any extra convincing. But I did watch it, and it was awesome. Howev...

GET HYPE: Persona 5 launches in September

It's time, folks! Or rather, it will be time...in a few short months. After months of silence last year's delay and weeks of drip-fed promotion culminating in a final countdown, Atlus has announced the Japanese release date of Persona...

Uh-oh: NIS America cuts ties with Atlus in Europe, Oceania

It's been a long time since it has truly sucked to be a European gamer, but this latest development certainly qualifies, particularly for Europeans and residents of Australia and Oceania that are fans of Atlus' games. NIS America (a.k.a. NI...

Review: Stella Glow

There’s something sad about seeing a company go under since it means that many hard-working individuals are out of a job. This is the case with the game development company Imageepoch, who filed for bankruptcy in May. Worst of all, th...

Persona 5 3rd PV is crazy awesome!

Send out a '39' for Miku in Persona 4: Dancing All Night

No bones about it: Persona 4: Dancing All Night is a weird game. Sure, Atlus has a long history of milking the Shin Megami Tensei franchise like it was Audumbla, the live-giving cow of Norse myth, but making a dancing game out of...

Atlus tweaking Dungeon Travelers 2 to not get banned

Fans of the To Heart series, or of developer AquaPlus' various visual novel franchises, are no doubt pretty excited by the impending release of Dungeon Travelers 2 on the PS Vita. Like Aquapazza, Dungeon Travelers 2 takes a bucke...

Shin Megami Tensei X Fire Emblem trailer explodes my mind

I watch a lot of anime and video game trailers, as you can probably guess. However, I can only count on one hand the times a video has totally blown my mind and left me confused! During the Nintendo Direct show yesterday, a trailer was fin...

Here now is your first real look at Persona 5

I mean...wow. I've said more than once that Atlus was going to have to work very hard to top Persona 4 Golden, which is perhaps the most reified possible iteration of the design formula Persona 3 pioneered. I don't know yet if what th...

Devil Survivor 2: Record Breaker has twice the content

It's been a few years, but we've finally gotten word on the status of Devil Survivor 2: Record Breaker, the updated 3DS re-release of Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor 2. Last we heard, mysterious "quality issues" had pushed the game back...

Persona 5 gets confirmed for 2015...again

The PlayStation experience event is going on right now, and one of the highlights of the keynote was a bit of news we already knew: Persona 5 is coming to both PS4 and PS3, and is dated for 2015. But, as I mentioned, chances are you kn...

Atlus USA summons five new Persona Q English trailers

Ever since I hopped on the Etrian Odyssey bandwagon, Persona Q's been on my radar for quite some time. Anyway, Atlus has uploaded a couple trailers that cover the game's Fusion System, along with showing off Marie, Elizabeth, Margaret, and...

Persona 4 Ultimax's English Story trailer enters the ring

We've reached September's halfway point, and Atlus is ready to localize a few more trailers for Persona 4 Arena Ultimax. The first one covers the game's story about the mysterious red fog that has engulfed the entire area. Other than that,...

TGS 2014: Oh look, it's Persona 5's first real trailer

Took 'em long enough! Atlus has finally revealed Persona 5 with a gloriously vague anime trailer for the game, due out on PS3 - and PS4 - next year. The latest mainline entry in the Persona series will be directed by Katsura Hashino, ...

Review: Persona 3 The Movie: #2 Midsummer Knight's Dream

Despite its pacing problems and general lack of an overarching story, I enjoyed Persona 3 The Movie: #1 Spring of Birth. As far as animated film adaptations of long games go, I think it did a novel job of compressing hours of gameplay and s...

E3 2014: Behold the glory of Persona Q

As if I needed any more reasons to get a 3DS, Nintendo has gone and released a new trailer for Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth, the Persona 3 and 4-themed dungeon crawler from the studio that brought you Etrian Odyssey.  ...

Big Persona announcement? Persona 4 Golden getting a show

After a fair amount of speculation earlier this week, the big news that Atlus was sitting on was none other than a new Persona 4 TV show, called Persona 4 the Golden ANIMATION, or P4GA for brevity's sake. Once again, we'll be taken on Yu Na...
