Atlus teases that it will announce a new title soon

Atlus has been plenty of busy at this year’s Tokyo Game Show not only promoting the upcoming games like Persona 5, Odin Sphere: Leifthrasir and 13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim (which was announced at TGS). But it seems that isn’t all the small publisher has up its sleeve, according to Atlus director of consumer software Naoto Hiraoka, “Soon, we will announce a new title” Hiraoka teased during a Sega Group title presentation.
