Atlus Publishing Steal Princess In North America

image Marvelous is co-publishing most of their games with XSEED, but Atlus still seems to be taking care of some Marvelous titles. On top of Luminous Arc 2 Atlus picked up Steal Princess, Climax’s spiritual successor to Landstalker. Not entirely unsurprising news since an English version was already announced for Europe, but it’s good to have some sort of confirmation of a North American release even if it’s just an ESRB leak as of now.


I played the Japanese version of Steal Princess and it starts off slow as molasses with a bunch of training levels. Once you get past the first batch Climax has some brain bending platforming puzzles to solve. Post-game players can create and trade user created Steal Princess levels over via Nintendo Wi-Fi. There are six spots for user levels on one DS cart and if Atlus can do one thing to improve the game over the Japanese release its creating a community for Steal Princess map makers.

    My main man Spencer, always on top of things!

    Question now is if the European and North American titles will use the same translation/localization. Not sure how much I / they can trust Rising Star Games for a quality job.

    Nice to get confirmation… my inner LandStalker fanboy wants this BAD.

  • megaten fan

    Atlus, bring over Devil Summoner 2 on the PS2 already!

  • cj_iwakura

    megaten fan: give them time. You really think they’ll announce DS2 before P4’s released?

  • jarrod

    Yeah, I bet we get Devil Summoner 2 *and* Devil Survivor next summer/fall.

    Megaten wise, I more eager for Atlus to finally pull back the curtain on their Wii and PS360 games…
