Atlus And Their Swag Showcase Trailer

By Spencer . March 18, 2009 . 6:13am

Almost all video game trailers focus on showing a game — that’s the point of a trailer. This clip released by Atlus takes a different approach, it highlights their Atlus Spoils goodies. Most Atlus games these days get the Atlus Spoils treatment with automatically bundled soundtracks and figures given to pre-orderers.


Free stuff is always welcome, but Atlus could take the Atlus Spoils program a step further with full blown special editions. Given a choice between a deluxe edition game with a ton of swag (a la Working Designs) and a lower price vanilla game which would you choose? What kind of items would you want?


  • I honestly don’t know. CDs and artbooks are pretty much the standard. It would be fun to see a little spin on things, but I love any goodies from my favorite games.
    What I do know is that the Atlus D Shop (and NIS’s Japanese shop) has some cool stuff I wouldn’t mind getting my hands on. There’s this really awesome white masked guy they’re selling now.
    Can’t go wrong with plushies!

    I’d like more “making of”-type extras. Documentary style interviews with developers and scriptwriters, insights into design decisions and inspirations regarding the story, stuff like that. I love my plushies, soundtracks, artbooks and whatnot as much as the next guy, but all of that piles up.

    Having some sort of commentary track right along a second playthrough of a game would be awesome as well.

    I like art books, “making of” features and the like. I usually really don’t care about music CDs. I lot of the time I never even use the music CDs. I have the Luminous Arc 2 CD lying gathering dust, but I love that gorgeous Luminous Arc 2 art book, and don’t mind paying extra for those kinds of things if it’s necessary.

    depends on the game and the bundle. If it’s a game I really like (or think I will like) and the bundle has some really nice things, then I would buy the deluxe pack.
