Atlus’ Project Re: Fantasy could be a PS4 game hints job listing

Project-Re-Fantasy-01512If you guys didn’t know Atlus launched a new in-house studio named Studio Zero which is being lead by veteran designers. The studio will have big heavy hitting names like Persona series producer and director Katsura Hasino, Persona artist Shigenori Soeijima, and even composer Shoji Meguro will be working on the studio’s first game going by the code name: Project Re: Fantasy. Outside of that, Atlus has been pretty hush on the game but now we have more clues as to what console Atlus’ Project Re: Fantasy might debut on. If you guessed PlayStation 4, you where right. Congratulations! The website Levtech Creators posted a job listing for a PlayStation 4 with the description: “the production of character motions in a newly in-development PlayStation 4 game.”

Oddly enough the position is for a series that is ‘popular worldwide’ and that one entry has sold over 1.5 million copies. This makes me question if this job listing is for Atlus’ Project Re: Fantasy because it hasn’t had a entry yet and for sure hasn’t sold 1.5 million copies. Though we do know that the Persona series, specifically Persona 5 is a world wide hit that has sold over 1.5 million units. Though a lot of veterans from Persona 5 are working on Atlus’ Project Re: Fantasy, so many they are using Persona 5’s success to hire talent for this new studio. 

The ‘last’ bit of info confirms that Atlus’ Project Re: Fantasy will be a “traditional RPG”, which won’t surprise Atlus veterans considering that is what their bread and butter is. Are you guys excited for Atlus’ Project Re: Fantasy? Do you think we will see more official news come Tokyo Game Show 2017?

Atlus’ “Project Re Fantasy” first artwork and details revealed

Project-Re-Fantasy-01510A few days ago we told you that Atlus was working on a new fantasy based JRPG which would be developed by a new in-house team called Studio Zero and would be lead by in-house veteran designers. We now have more details on Atlus’ “Project Re Fantasy” which is the current title for the project. We do know that the game won’t be related to previous property and take place in a fantasy setting unlike their other Atlus games that take place in a modern world. Persona series producer and director Katsura Hasino, Persona artist Shigenori Soejima, and composer Shoji Meguro will all be working on the project.

Atlus’ “Project Re Fantasy” will have a live stream on December 23 at 20:00 JST (3am PST) and after that they will start large scale recruitment for the title. Seems that the project is still a ways off. Weekly Famitsu had an interview with Atlus’ company director and Studio Zero creative producer which you can read a translated version after the jump.
