What Is This Mysterious Atlus Website For?

By Ishaan . November 14, 2013 . 12:31pm

This morning, Atlus USA sent out another one of their Atlus Faithful newsletters about Aquapazza, the upcoming fighting game featuring a crossover of Aquaplus characters. Embedded at the very bottom of the newsletter, however, was a link to this mysterious site.



The animation on the site looks like that of an ultrasound. Additionally, the text on the left looks like it could be referring to a few of Atlus’ games, although that could just be my imagination. “Persist 5,” “Gold 4,” “Trial 2” could possibly be referring to Persona 5, Persona 4: Golden and Trine 2—although, obviously, we’re shooting in the dark here.


We’ll have more to report on the mysterious site as the situation develops. Meanwhile, over in Japan, Atlus are counting down to the next project by the Persona team.

    a Trauma Center game?

    • Margarita

      my thaughts exactly,
      i have been waiting for a new trauma center game to come out

    • angelx03

      That would work wonderfully for the Wii U.

    • Makes better sense than my first thought of ‘oh someone’s having a kid’.

    • Kornelious

      It could be trauma center, but the whole baby thing seems strangely specific

      • Juan Andrés Valencia

        Oh god…


        • AuraGuyChris


          *Sad Angie*

          “It’s a life of a baby. We can’t fail…!”

          *Makes a small mistake, cue angry Angie*


          • Exkaiser


      • Arcana Wiz

        maybe Comception 2 localization????

  • Jahred Down

    It’s a child….SNOWBOARD KIDS?!

    *sigh* if only.

  • Barrylocke89

    Which Aquapazza faithful email is this in?

    • revenent hell

      The one mailed out today i’d assume but mine didn’t have the link at the bottom unless im seriously missing something

      • Michael Martin

        It’s the thumbnail at the very bottom of the email. (under the “Published and distributed..” line)

        • revenent hell

          Wow … I am spectacularly special…
          Thanks for pointing that out..

  • idrawrobots


    • J_Joestar

      PersonaXEarthbound ?

      • idrawrobots

        If only there were more AtlusXNintendo games.

        • Kaetsu

          SMTxFE is good enough for me :)

    • ShadowDivz

      That avatar is….
      *adjusts glasses
      Hibari and Haruka’s asses bumping together!(Senran Kagura)
      ……In case anyone was wondering.

      • Chrystofax

        I was wondering what that was, but was to afraid to ask….Thanks!

        • ShadowDivz

          No problem. It’s what im here for.

      • Servant BerserCAR

        Thanks for the info. Now I can sleep well tonight. ( -‿-)

  • Chrystofax

    Maybe it has something to do with Conception? that rpg by Spike? thats the first thing that came to my mind…

  • Suicunesol


    Conception II for 3DS/PSV?

    EDIT: Hah, Chrysofax got it before me…

    • TheExile285

      Ohoho, that’d be cool

    • Chrystofax

      Heh, I remember playing the demo for the first one once, it would be nice if it came out in english

    • Audie Bakerson

      That makes sense.

      It also further fractures the NA licensees of all the stuff that has an appearance in Akiba’s Trip 2 (I think it is pretty minor though, just an in-game TV ad in a rotation of a bunch).

    • Kornelious

      Well it is Atlus…a lot the games they make can’t really be
      considered…normal (but in a good way) so it can be anything.
      Personally though, I’m hoping it’s an English release of conception 2 :)

      • Laer_HeiSeiRyuu

        They make puzzle and rpg games and localize weird things.

    • Michael Martin

      Maybe it’s just me, but it does look like it says “C2” just above “Trial 2.”

      • Exkaiser

        The .swf file is also named “sc_c2.swf”…

  • Aw, it’s a Pat!

  • Xaltmas

    It’s Daylight. The first-person survival horror game that Atlus USA is publishing. It centers around a woman who wakes up in an abandoned hospital.

    Check it, fools.

    • Barrylocke89

      Sounds like you nailed it.

    • Silver Citizen

      Daylight has already been announced. They wouldn’t be teasing something they’ve already told us about.

  • Taedirk

    Don’t forget the 2D button in the bottom left corner.

  • Riseabovethesky

    It’s smiling, must be a good sign.

    • revenent hell

      Well It did remind me of how Gremlins smile so yeah…..

  • TheRealMalek

    Catherine 2 birth of the half demon baby

    • ShadowDivz

      Roflz. But Catherine was(and should be) a one shot game.

      • TheRealMalek

        it wasn’t, it has been announced as an new franchise…

        • Scarlet_Devil_Slave

          No, Golden Theater was announced as a franchise. Catherine itself was a one-time thing.

        • ShadowDivz

          You sure? I mean, it’s hard to have a sequel when a game has 8 endings.

          • TheRealMalek

            You make one of the ending “canon” and you can have a sequel even if some players won’t be happy

      • Laer_HeiSeiRyuu

        Q FAk U.

        Erica needs more demented poor souls! TORMENT THEM IN 3D

  • DesmaX

    Hm… I would say Daylight, since it’s seem related.

    But those “Persist 5” and “Gold 4” are kinda bothering me. And that “Center of new releases” does seem to imply a new announcement

    • Xaltmas

      Perhaps Atlus USA is setting up their own channel-type site, like the JP branch is?

      Atlus USA did just shut down their forums, so maybe they are redoing their site?

  • revenent hell

    Well it could be a number of games since it does say “Center for new releases” so that makes me think more than one obviously.
    All of the above!. The more games the ,uh, poorer I get to be.

  • Trauma Center: Labor Panic (you heard it here first)

  • Audie Bakerson

    16 FPS? Insert a jab at how it is clearly for the system of your choice here.

    • Juan Andrés Valencia

      16 FPS? Ah hah! I knew it! Atlus got the rights for Two Worlds.

  • Juan Andrés Valencia

    Trauma Center: Personas of The Unborn Godess

  • Guest

      Yes…. yes…

    • $61526767

      lol. That isn’t a bad idea.. that would make my day. plus, this had me laughing. lol

    • Ric Vazquez

      LOL, I think that wouldn’t be bad at all XD

  • Sentsuizan_93

    The wonderful birth of Persona 5? :O

  • NorsonWood

    Can someone tell what that “SIC3” stands for?

    • revenent hell

      I kind of thought it looked more like S/C 3…. even so I still don’t have a clue what it is sorry.

      • NorsonWood

        now that you mentioned it, it does look like S/C 3 … no idea either lol

        • revenent hell

          ” Steambot Chronicles” ?
          Its highly unlikely but the only SC thing that I can think of at the moment.

  • ShawnOtakuSomething

    Persona 3/4: Teen mom Edition

    • Mavalex

      Starring all the girls Minato/Yu knocked up in their games

      • ShawnOtakuSomething

        Persona 4
        Yu: .what was that thing my father said before I left?
        Dad: “Remember son, don’t be silly wrap your willy.”
        Yu: shit

        Persona 3

  • Miyako Arima


  • Linhua

    … and then, a new Persona was born.

  • EX+

    Persist-5 Gold-4
    Yeah, I can’t interpret this at all. I think it’s going to be a game where you play as a doctor and perform surgeries.

  • Alexander Aubert

    persona 5 or a new trauma center game?

  • Junko Enoshima

    It’s the return of Giygas, duh.

    • ShawnOtakuSomething

      “hurt me more ness”

  • A baby so…
    Conception 2?

    I would like a new Trauma Center, perhaps it is adding pregnancy to the mix.

    • Kelohmello


  • Kaetsu

    An ultra sound of Nyx?

    • Testsubject909

      Well she is female in Nocturne.

  • Guest

    Shin Megami Tensei: Parenthood Survivor xD
    Life simulator. Decide which path to raise your child: The Good, the Bad or the Ugly

  • Kaetsu

    My prediction:
    -The ultrasound symbolises the birth of a new Atlus(since Sega acquired them)
    -The things on the left side represent games they will announce
    Persist 5=Persona 5
    Gold 4= Persona 4 Golden on 3DS?
    SC3=Steambot Chronicles?
    C2=Conception 2
    Trint 2=?

    EDIT: I just realised the top of the website says “Centre For New Releases”

  • Goldenboi1210

    First thing I thought of when I saw this was the teaser trailer for Panopticon.

  • KiTA

    If you hit forward and then play on the flash (right click), a heartbeat starts and the picture changes. If you wait, you start hearing baby sounds. More sounds (laughter) happen if you click random things while the hearbeat is going.

  • DragKudo

    Persist: Continue to be believed wrongly: to continue being widely believed or accepted despite evidence or proof to the contrary

    A shadow, the golden shadow?
    Shadow/ The false self: an unconscious aspect of the personality which the conscious ego does not identify in itself. Because one tends to reject or remain ignorant of the least desirable aspects of one’s personality, the shadow is largely negative.

    Persona/ The True Self: To describe a sense of self based on spontaneous authentic experience, a sense of “all-out personal aliveness” or “feeling real”.

  • Mnstrzero00

    A smartphone game. I have no more hope left in me.

  • My guess when I saw this earlier was Conception. But I couldn’t remember if the newest was on 3DS, since I saw this on goNintendo.

    Oh, it says Women’s Health on top though. . . I assume they specifically mean the ob/gyn, which is a better hint toward Conception 2.

    • TheExile285

      Vita & 3DS

  • Eder García

    who is the father? next on Maury

  • Chaos_Knight

    Sega and Atlus are having a baby.

    • Ric Vazquez

      That makes sense :) I hope the baby has Persona as it’s first name XD

  • Rake

    >Wild guess.

    It’s Tatsuya’s incarnate so he can whoop Minato’s and Yu’s ass, and put the two in their place~

  • Lazulis


  • Mental

    On top of that.

    All this speculation is a bit exciting.

    • Kaetsu

      That was from June…

      • Mental

        My mistake. Sorry for the confusion.

      • JustThisOne

        Whoops. Didn’t notice myself. >__<

  • DragKudo

    This could be that new Megaten game they were talking about. I mean Shin megami tensei means rebirth of the true goddess. Maybe this is it. With that being said i still think it’s trauma. Doesn’t make sense if it’s conception 2. It came out in August.
    Rebirth of Megaten game or Trauma.. Devil Children?

    • chroma816

      The “rebirth” is more of a spiritual/transcendental/reincarnation kind of thing – it has nothing to do with actually being born.

      • DragKudo

        Rebirth can be either way. In Megaten it is both. Since the reincarnation will need a body/vessel.

        • chroma816



          She was already a character anyway. The entire series is named the way it is due to a character in the novel the games were originally based from. It’s extremely unlikely we’ll get another character, nor that a game will center on her again. The way you’re thinking about it, based on the name, would be like if Pokemon literally had a monster pocket pokemon, or Chrono Trigger was literally about a gun.

          • DragKudo

            SMT= rebirth of the true goddess. not megami tensei. and izanami was and is still a character in the megaten games. She played three major roles. Pokemon do have monsters in you pockets. Guns have triggers, not all triggers are part of a gun. Each SMT game had the rebirth of a goddess. Most of them was izanami. How is it unlikely we’ll get another character?

  • Isaac Newton

    P4G for the PS3 = F*CK*NG SOLD!!

    • Kaetsu

      If P4G is coming to another system I feel like it would be 3DS however I would still gladly pick it up for PS3 if it does come out for it.

      • Testsubject909

        Close to zero chances.

        Megami Ibunroku Persona has been on Sony since it’s inception and has remained only on Sony consoles.

        • Testsubject909

          Inception… Conception… Something-tion.

  • Nitraion

    I can only think trauma center….

  • Goldenboi1210

    First thing I thought when I saw this was the Panopticon teaser trailer.

  • Lordshade

    Mara and Ariochs baby maker.

    • Testsubject909

      What about Diana?

  • PersonaSpace

    I hope Sega isn’t the father.

  • MXC

    So it’s either Freedom Wars or Conception II. Well either way Imma be happy.

    • ShadowDivz

      Is Atlus even involved with Freedom Wars?

      • MXC

        I don’t really know XD. But if people are gonna hope for Conception II, as unlikely as it is, Imma hope on Freedom wars as well.

        • Arcana Wiz

          freedom wars is first party. :P
          if it gets localized it will be by sony.

          • ShadowDivz

            It should be localized.

    • DragKudo

      Conception 2 came out in august. So it’s not that.

      • Reki Honoo

        Conception 2 came out in august in japan. The conception series has never made it outside of japan, so this could very well be an localization of conception 2.

  • 07thCrow

    Did the first Conception game ever get released in the west? I’ve never seen it, and I can’t imagine Atlus would release a sequel before the first game ever came out (unless it’s both!). Either way, I’ll be excited if this turns out to be Conception 2 or the next Trauma Center! xD

  • Anon-non

    I’m sorry, but my wishful thinking assumes everything that Atlus teases is Persona 5, lol!

  • Ouch My Head Said Dionysus

    Conception: Please Deliver My Child!

  • Croix Zapp

    Persona 5: Son of Jack frost

    • Testsubject909


  • Wada

    Half-Life vs Persona Crossover game. Due out in 2050, maybe.

  • darkbartz

    Eternal Punishment please. I know that it has completely nothing to do with the picture whatsoever, unless you twist it around, then maybe it might fit?

  • Kaetsu

    If it’s a new Trauma Centre game does mean we would see it on Wii U?
