ATLUS is announcing a new fantasy RPG on December 23

Although western fans are still patiently waiting for Persona 5 to come to the west, ATLUS is getting ready to announce a brand new fantasy RPG. The project is being developed by a new studio within ATLUS called Studio Zero and its being led by Persona 5 director Katsura Hashino.

The announcement will made via a stream on NicoNico on December 23rd at 20:00 JST. 

“25 years ago, the Atlus RPG uttered its first cry. Speaking of RPGs in those days, the stories in so-called “fantasy” worlds were mainstream. The Shin Megami Tensei series was released as an “opposition” to such a “common” world view, and the Persona series was released as its spin-off. Both series, even today in their latest entries, have always been made with the concept that it will be a counter to the times. And now, in addition to continuing the titles within those series, what will our approach to a new RPG be? That is, to challenge the norms of the genre gamers have been consuming for decades. The challenge is about to begin. We would be happy if you would stand by for the moment we began from zero and the moment we began our challenge from zero.”

— Katsura Hashino, producer and game director
