Catherine is Atlus' first HD title from the Persona development team released for both the PS3 and Xbox 360. You could say it's a spin-off title based off a side character from one of their more popular franchises, Persona 3 Portable. Vincent Brookes is a 32 year old man being pressed into the dreaded question of marriage by his fiancé...

So, how have those of you in NA being enjoying the localised version of Persona 3 Portable?

Anyway, just wanted to let you Persona fans know the first P3P Drama CD is due out in August 28th this month, featuring all the new...


Tokyo Monoharashi Karasunomori Gakuen Kitan Review

In Tokyo Exorcists - Tales of Karasunomori Academy, you play as senior high student Kazuki Shichidai who just like a number of other students. experienced an odd phenomena at the library.

Japanese Trauma Team to Get Bonus DVD

The seventh (and last?) Japanese trailer for Trauma Team is up yet it doesn't shed any more light on what the killer disease is this time. It does show that whatever it is, it causes a lot of internal hemorrhaging. Maybe beyond Class IV? It also hints the protagonist CR-S01's father maybe behind it all and have signed a pact with evil. On...


More Trauma Team Trailer Extravaganza

Hmmm, I think Atlus used this trailer teasing marketing strategy before... Can't remember for which game though. In any case, the game developer has been releasing a new trailer everyday in collaboration with Famitsu, each trailer featuring one of the six doctors from their upcoming Trauma Team game. So we now have (from left to...


Trauma Team Japanese Boxart and Trailer

Persona 3 Portable Official Fanbook ::

- Update - Not really much to do with the fanbook but... Just in case anyone's been wondering why the Japanese gave the P3P Heroine the unofficial name "Hamuko", Kita-san kindly explained that it maybe because in Atlus' TGS2009 trailer, they named her as "主人 公子" instead of  "主人公" (which I think is most likely a typo). If you take 公子...


Atlus' New Year Lucky Bags ::

In Japan, department stores usually sell "Fukubukuros (Lucky Bags)" every New Year which as the name suggests, is either filled with junk or some excellent goodies but most of the time they'll total to more than what you pay for. It seems Atlus is offering the same at their online store - 5000 yen (US$53) and 10,000 yen (US$106) bags...


How Much Extra Script Did P3P Get?

Atlus added in enough script for the new Heroine in Persona 3 Portable to fill in four of these books apparently. But just how much of the original game is it equivalent to and how does it compare to other remakes? And will they be making P3P drama CDs? Might want to keep an eye on the voice actress, Manami Inoue's blog to find out. On another...
