ATLUS_Ascot_Logo

ATLUS, the great minds behind series like King of Fighters and Sherlock Holmes, have drastically slashed prices on four of their best selling PSN games. The four titles on sale are Droplitz, Rock of Ages, Shin Megami Tensei: Persona and Trine 2. All of them are great games and are well worth their full price, but you don’t have to pay that, if you hurry. From now until the rapidly approaching date of February 1, you can pick up anyone of these titles for 50% off their normal price.

Demon’s Souls digital download available for PS3 on Tuesday

Demons Souls US PlayStation Blog

This is exactly the punishment you have been looking for. ATLUS brings the hit RPG to PSN next week for only $19.99. Demon’s Souls was a surprise hit for the venerated JRPG publisher, as it provided a true challenge that harkens to classic games while integrating a style of online  play that is relatively unique to Demon’s Souls and its successor Dark Souls.

In what can be best described as the first successful Western RPG developed by a Japanese developer, Demon’s Souls is unforgiving in its doling out of punishment. Though the player is often abused by the game’s brutality, it has enough of a hook to keep the player engaged, though the weak of heart and patience will most likely be scared (and scarred) away. It offers an online play that is haunting; you summon ghostly friends to aid you in your quest or fight off the despicable spirits who invade your realm. The message system that allows players to help, hurt, encourage and cajole adds yet another unique layer to what is not surprisingly, ATLUS’s highest selling title of all time.

Between January 8th-14th players who download Demon’s Souls on PSN can participate in the PureWhite World Tendency event, which will offer a slightly less punishing experience to ease new players into the Demon’s Souls experience. Prepare yourself.

Zeno Clash II coming to PSN this Spring

Zeno Clash is back for more first-person brawling action and this time around, it will be available for download on PSN.

If you missed the first one, you should run out and pick it up, there is plenty of time to play through it. It is such a strange yet well put together game and story. In the first game you play as Ghat, a man who is seeking exile from his family, you might to if you had his family. His Father-Mother is a huge hermaphroditic creature that gives birth to human-animal creatures and as he gets further and further away things start getting stranger and stranger. I will leave the rest for you to figure out as we here at PSN Fans are not huge on spoilers, but be ready for it to probably be the strangest story you have ever heard.

As you can see from the trailer above, Father-Mother has been captured and now you [Ghat] apparently are trying to rescue “it”. All the characters from the first story have returned, as well as many new and interesting ones. You can expect this story to be just as twisted as the original and to encounter several very strange creatures. Not much more is known about Zeno Clash II other then you can expect to see it sometime in “Spring”, thanks to Carlos Bordeu, one of the developers at Ace Team.

Persona 4 reborn on PS Vita

Atlus is about to do it again. The remastered version of the dark rp,g Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 4, or Persona 4 Golden, is yet another amazing reason to own a PS Vita. Persona 3 for the PSP was met with critical success, however Persona 4 Golden for the Vita seems to be on its way to shattering the records, and for good reasons. Take on the role of a teenager who, with a group of friends, inadvertently stumble upon the cause of disturbing murders in the small fictional town in Japan. Hours of gameplay, extensive and interesting storyline, engaging combat and of course, demon collecting should keep any gamer busy.

Fans of the original should be pleased that the visuals have been remastered for the PS Vita. More than 1 ½ times more dialogue than the original release has been voiced in Person 4 Golden in addition to a new song and animation from Shoji Meguro. New story events, a new character and anime cutscenes were among other additions to the PS Vita version. There is even an online gameplay option. Having trouble in the TV world of Persona 4? Call out for help to receive assistance from other players online.

Investigating mysterious murders and demon keeping can begin when Persona 4 Golden is released for $39.99 on 11/20/12 for the PS Vita.

Zeno Clash 2 Announced for Next Year

In another piece of E3 news, Atlus announced that Zeno Clash 2 will make it’s way to PSN early next year. Players will again take the role of Ghat in the world of Zenozoik, only this time you’ll explore an open world with the possibility of co-op. Players will be able to drop in and out of co-op at will, and ACE Team co-founder Andres Bordeu promises that, “We will make certain that going back and forth between solo and cooperative play preserves the consistency and impact of the narrative experience…”

New mechanics will be added including a much needed lock-on system and as of yet unspecified RPG elements. Anyone who played the first Zeno Clash knows what to expect from this acid trip of a game, but if the trailer leaves you confused, it’s better to not fight it.

Rock of Ages rolling onto the PS3 this summer

Rock of Ages has been on Xbox 360 and Steam now for quite some time, leaving PS3 owners with a boulder sized gap in their gaming hearts. Recently over on the the developers forums, Ace Team posted that they have to go through SCEA and SCEE, leading us to believe it should be coming soon. Then Aram Jabarri, PR for Atlus, told Joystiq that if everything goes according to plan, then Rock of Ages “should be out worldwide for PSN in May/June”. It also appears as if the long wait will pay off for PS3 owners as Jabarri goes on to say that you can expect “bonus content, as well as SECRET bonus content…exclusively on PS3″.

For those of you that have no clue what Rock of Ages is, let us here at PSN Fans try and explain it. Basically you’re a rock, traveling through time, breaking down the door to rival castles before they can break yours down. The basis is definitely…strange and a bit simple, but add in the tower defense like placements and you have the stage for a unique strategy game like no other.

Persona 3: FES Transferring to PSN Next Week

Atlus’ RPG epic Persona 3: FES, which was released on the PS2 back in 2007, will be making its way to PSN next week as a PS2 classic. This news was broken during the most recent PlayStation Blogcast.

FES, the enhanced edition of Persona 3, contains a bounty of updates as well as a new epilogue. While improved, the core game still follows the same group of students at Gekkoukan High School as they battle the Shadows with their unique Personas. The game’s price is assumed to be $10, like the other PS2 Classics that have been released, and it will be available on the PlayStation Network next week. If you’re looking for a good JRPG to lose a few dozen hours to, look no further.

Digital Devil Saga Series Being Summoned to European PSN

Shin Megami Tensei: Digital Devil Saga and its aptly named sequel, Shin Megami Tensei: Digital Devil Saga II, will both be released on the European PSN store in the near future. This news comes through the UK Ghostlight blog.

Known in Japan as Digital Devil Saga: Avatar Tuner, Digital Devil Saga is a PlayStation 2, Atlus RPG first released in 2004. While still carrying the Shin Megami Tensei moniker, both games in the series put a much greater emphasis on the characters themselves instead of the demon summoning that the franchise is so well-known for. Members of the party have the luxury of transforming from human to demon form at will, as well as being able to alter equipped skills on the fly.

No solid release date was available on the blog, but there’s a good chance that Sony will be making that information known soon. Stay tuned.
