Atlus doing an action game? I never saw it coming!
Atlus is on top of the world after the huge success both critical and commercial of last year’s Persona 5, but the publisher isn’t just going to ride that gravy train. On top of the forthcoming Catherine remake, it appears that Atlus is hiring for an as of yet unknown “High-End Action Game” through a listing spotted with Japanese career site Creator’s Partner Fellows.
While of course there’s no information on what kind of action game they might be making, it’s interesting to speculate on what they might be up to. Atlus has a long history stretching back to the early days of gaming, and while in the past they’ve acted as publisher for a huge variety of games, their in house productions have overwhelmingly been focused on role playing games, not action titles.
