Atlus Expect Persona Q Shortages At Launch In Japan

Recommended Videos

In a recent tweet, Atlus indicated that they expect Persona Q shortages at retail when the game launches in Japan. They suspect this will happen due to their other recent releases, which have sold out at launch or shortly after.


“In the case of the last few Atlus games, be it [Shin Megami Tensei IV] or [Etrian Odyssey Untold], there have been a lot of stores out of stock after the first week, or in the worst cases, on release day itself,” Atlus said in a tweet.


“We feel deeply for all the customers that were looking forward to our games but contacted us saying, ‘I couldn’t buy it.’ For those who plan on buying Persona Q, we believe it is safer to pre-order the game. We’ll be counting on your orders.”


Persona Q will be available in Japan on June 5th. The game’s launch will be accompanied by a limited edition Nintendo 3DS XL that is designed to look like a Persona compendium.
