Atlus pushes Steal Princess into May

Atlus pushes Steal Princess into
May, soothes wounds of disappointment with Spoils Mini-poster for your thoughts?

Atlus U.S.A., Inc. today announced
that Steal Princess, the genre-bending puzzle-platformer for Nintendo DS™, has
been delayed until May 19th. Unrelated to the delay but serving as a special
treat to fans that either pre-order or pick up the game at launch, each and
every copy of Steal Princess will include a special mini-poster with beautiful
art inspired by the game.

"Releasing a few weeks later gives
us more time to familiarize gamers with this creative, original title," stated
Tim Pivnicny, VP of Sales and Marketing at Atlus. "Because Steal Princess will
be available through fewer sales channels and in smaller quantities than other
Atlus releases, finding the optimal launch conditions is critical to ensuring
that this daring new release avoids getting lost in an already busy April."

The mini-poster extra, selected by
fans through online voting, will be tucked behind the cover art, ensuring it
reaches pre-order and launch date customers in perfect condition. This continues
the Atlus Spoils program that provides fan-favorite extras with many Atlus games
at launch.
