星期二, 九月 9th, 2008 by Aren at www.digitaldevildb.com

Aeria Games & Entertainment announces that it has obtained the rights to host and translate Shin Megami Tensei Online IMAGINE, a Megaten MMORPG produced by CAVE headquartered in Japan. This announcement comes only a week after a polled petition was spotted in Aeria’s game forums. Out of the 1230 votes cast 70 percent of respondees pledged interest in patronizing a local edition of Imagine.

MegaTen

Aeria appears decided in marketing the title “MegaTen”, though the original title has not been airbrushed from promotional materials. Announced are plans for eventual North American and European releases including English, Spanish, German, and French services. So far it is unclear whether any restrictions will be placed on foreign currencies as is now done for the long running Japanese market.

Aeria (located in Santa Cara, CA) is a company well known within the online gaming community for it’s freely playable online games including Shaiya, Twelve Sky, Domo, and Last Chaos. This is Aeria’s first Megami Tensei title and it is yet to be seen how MegaTen might differ from Atlus USA’s offerings. As stated by Aeria all Aeria productions are “free-2-play” or based on some variation of the “cash shop” business model where an “item mall” allows players to buy virtual commodities via AP or Aeria points, which are in turn purchased in exchange for domestic currency, or “real world” money, at Aeria’s website. Unlike MegaTen’s Japanese counterpart, it is reported Aeria has a history of rewarding players AP. Otherwise it is unknown how Aeria’s version might differ in terms of game-play.

The following day “SpencerC” explained his role as “the producer for MegaTen” and announced a need for “tech savvy volunteers” to aid with translation and localization. Unfortunately Aeria has chosen to remove these announcements from public view, including the acquisition press release. If anyone has remaining copies of these materials, www.digitaldevildb.com would like to include this information in its database.

Atlus USA Makes Game Developer’s Top 20 Publishers List

星期二, 十月 9th, 2007 by Tony at www.digitaldevildb.com

Things have been pretty quiet in the Megaten world as of late. Even in terms of general related Atlus news there’s not been too much to say.

Gamasutra has an interesting article up about Game Developer’s Top 20 Publishers. The list is generally dominated by the top players every one would name, such as EA, Nintendo and Activision. Of particular interest, however, is Atlus USA’s appearance in spot 18.

Pretty nice.

Persona 3 Atlus Interview

星期五, 八月 31st, 2007 by Tony at www.digitaldevildb.com

Hey everyone. Just writing to inform you that our interview with Atlus for Persona 3 is posted on the site. There’s some discussion of FES, older SMT releases, the Japanese rating versus the US’s M rating and so forth.

Some of the questions were crafted before anyone at this site got to actually play the game (not to mention those who submitted questions in our forum). In those cases, anyone who has played the title will know how those components work. They’re being left in the interview for completion’s sake, but also because there is some interesting insight at times.

Super big thanks to both Aram and Yu at Atlus for taking the time to help us out, despite the headaches of the delay, E3 and other releases in the pipeline.

Persona 3 in Europe?

星期五, 七月 27th, 2007 by Tony at www.digitaldevildb.com

Persona 3 has started popping up on retailer websites for European release in 2008. While Game, for example, does not list a publisher on their web site, others are marking it as KOEI. This makes sense since they recently published Devil Summoner in the area.

My assumption is that this likely will only be translated into English for a general UK release. As far as I’m aware, Shin Megami Tensei: Nocturne is the only game released in PAL format so far that actually offers multiple languages.

In any case, if more news pops up we’ll post it. Thanks to ShinByakki for pointing this out.

Fredric Paul’s article touched off a discussion with some colleagues of mine, who agreed that Google abuses has become careless thanks to its “monopoly” with AdSense by (among other things) callously dropping AdSense participants for alleged click fraud without a reasonable appeals policy. A request for an explanation fell on deaf ears, and my colleague was left with the impression that Google “would have been more likely to work with me,” if it weren’t in such a strong position.
