Xbox: will Atlus games arrive on Microsoft consoles?


Could Atlus also start developing games for Xbox in the future? There is still no official confirmation on this but the new survey by the development team (in collaboration with SEGA) would seem to open up to this possibility. In fact, every year, the Japanese developer launches a questionnaire to the public, to find out their preference towards the target platforms of the titles. For the first time ever, the console family produced by Microsoft has also appeared.

The survey asks if players would like to see some of the key Atlus franchises, such as the Persona series, Shin Megami Tensei, Etrian Odyssey and many others on Xbox too. This is a very important opening, given that in recent history the developer has decided to publish his games on Sony consoles such as PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4, PC (like the recent arrival of Persona 5 Striker) and of course Nintendo Switch but has ignored in fact all the efforts of the Redmond giant in the gaming sector. There had been something of an opening in the past, with the release of some titles (including Catherine on Xbox 360 and two spin-offs of Persona 4) but it never materialized into a long-term collaboration.

Clearly the history of Xbox in Japan is not the happiest. Many will remember the efforts of Phil Spencer and more generally of the gaming division of Microsoft to try to enter the market of the Rising Sun. Some were more or less a success, such as Blue Dragon, while others turned out to be a real defeat like the now famous cancellation of Scalebound. Any public interest in Atlus games could be a very important assist to the brand and it is therefore not excluded that in the near future it will be possible to witness a more regular publication of the games on Redmond services and consoles.

However, we will ask the question to you: would you be happy to see the most famous Atlus series also be published on Xbox in the near future? Let us know yours by leaving a comment on this news!

If you missed Persona 5, you can easily retrieve it (at a great price) on Amazon.
