Rumor: Atlus Working on Follow-up to a Popular PS3 Game

We’ve heard of a hot new rumor focused on the next game from one of our most beloved game developers – Atlus.

The new rumor comes via Japanese blogger Ryokutya2089, a regular Famitsu leaker, who says he is told Atlus is working on a sequel to a popular game from the PlayStation 3 console generation.

The blogger notes that the game doesn’t have a number, leading him to believe it might be an enhanced version or a full remaster of a previous release, but it wouldn’t have new downloadable content. The game rumored months ago, and will reportedly be revealed before the end of 2017.

It’s worth mentioning Atlus previously teased some kind of new game in the Catherine universe while promoting new hires for their newly established Studio Zero. Atlus also confirmed they’re working on another game alongside Project Re Fantasy.

What kind of game would you like to see Atlus work on next? Sound off in the comments below!

  • It might not be Catherine, because it was also released on 360. Do we have a list for all of Atlus’ PS3 exclusive titles?

    Catherine for PC god damn it. Make it happen Atlus

  • thunk

    Apparently it runs well on RPSC3, even with a low spec CPU, like an i3 (at 30fps).

  • InkViper

    Wish atlas would do a remake or sequel of Maken X… That game was all sorts of Fuckte up, that you rarely see today.

  • sanic

    3D dot hero?


    If it’s popular, it’s not niche. Hmmm….

  • Mr0303

    Haven’t played Catherine, but this is the most likely candidate if it is a popular game from Atlus. This or another Persona Arena.

  • Uncle Ocelot

    Wasn’t there something for the PS2?

  • Uncle Ocelot

    The article doesn’t mention the rumoured game being a PS3 exclusive though.

  • Uncle Ocelot

    Well Atlus published a few titles outside of Japan, but in terms of games they actually developed on PS3, I think that just leaves Persona 5 and Catherine, and Persona just came out sooo…

  • Sure, but then why mention the PS3? :/

    Because the Xbox 360 wasnt that much relevant in Japan (take note the source of this news comes from a japanese source, Famitsu) despite some japanese games originally exclusive on it (most of them ended up re-released on Vita) such as EDF3, and a couple of dungeon crawlers & schumps.

  • Shattno

    I really hope it’s a sequel to Catherine, I really loved that game

  • That makes sense.

  • Uncle Ocelot

    The rumor is coming from a Japanese source, so I guess the 360 didn’t really factor into it.

    Catherine dancing all night. Remember this msg,

  • Matz

    I hope it’s a sequel with a different cast of characters and more pointless trivia about alcoholic drinks and sweet music from SMT/Persona games

  • Snorlaxation

    I’d love more Golden Playhouse installments.

    Maybe I’m just a brainlet, but I couldn’t figure out how to get it to work.
