Atlus' Secret Game is Growlanser IV: Over Reloaded
Atlus has slowly been teasing the name of their next release through a series of email and Facebook clues. Today, we received the forth in our inbox, pretty much confirming our suspicions as to the game's identity.
Clue 1: The game's title begins with the letter "G"
Clue 2: The game's title ends with the letter "R"
Clue 3: It can best be classified as a strategy RPG
Clue 4: It is the forth release in its series
Clue 5: It is a PSP game
Based on these clues, we're pretty sure Atlus's next release is Growlanser IV: Over Reloaded, an enhanced PSP port of the popular Japan-only PS2 strategy RPG. Growlanser isn't a series with much history in America, and though Growlanser Generations bundled the first two games together for North American PS2 owners, the package was less known for the actual games and more for Working Designs' ridiculous special-edition premium items (I still have that watch somewhere...). We'll have to wait and see if this one finds an audience.
Check out the game's opening to see what Growlanser is all about. Namely very shiny anime people.
