Today Atlus released an extensive survey in which they asked the opinion of the fans on several rather intriguing questions.
The questionary is fully in Japanese, but it does touch some interesting points, beginning with whether the fans would like a new Persona board game, a fighting game, an online RPG, a strategy RPG, an action RPG, a shooter, or they’d prefer a completely new Persona 6.
For each of those options, we’re also asked which platform we’d like among PS4, Switch, PC, PlayStation VR, PS Vita, 3DS, Smartphones, or something else.
Interestingly, the survey continues by inquiring on whether fans would enjoy a remake of one of many of the developer’s games. The list includes the Devil Survivor and Devil Summoner series, the Etrian Odyssey series, the Digital Devil Saga series, the numbered Shin Megami Tensei titles, and the whole Persona series. For all of those options, the preferred platform is also asked, and the possibilities are the same as the previous question.
The next question asks whether we’d like to see spinoff games from Atlus properties developed by other developers. The titles listed are Soul Hackers, Devil Summoner, Devil Survivor, Persona fighting games, Persona dancing games, Persona Q, Etrian Odyssey, the main Persona series, and the Shin Megami Tensei series.
Another one inquires on whether we’d like Atlus to focus on developing a completely new IP, a mainline numbered game of their main series, a spin-off of their main series, a remake of past games, a port of already-released games to new consoles, non-gaming content like anime, or collaborations with other companies.
If you answer that you want a completely new IP, you’re also asked whether you’d like it from the Shin Megami Tensei team, the recently-formed Studio Zero, the Persona team, Vanillaware, or the Etrian Odyssey team.
Last, but not least, we’re asked again on which platforms we’d like the next mainline numbered titles of the Persona, Shin Megami Tensei, and Etrian Odyssey series. Once more, the options are PS4, PlayStation VR, PS Vita, 3DS, Switch, Smartphone, PC, or something else entirely.
Actually, I lied. That wasn’t the last question. The actual last one is whether you believe in the Phantom Thieves or not. I’m not kidding.
As a bonus, the survey also includes some pieces of lovely artwork of the upcoming game by Studio Zero code-named Project Re Fantasy. We glimpsed them in the latest teaser trailer, but now we see the full version of each.
