SEGA / ATLUS had an incredible showing at E3 2018. Leading up to the show, the company announced three new games headed to the West, including the highly-anticipated Persona 3: Dancing in Moonlight and Persona 5: Dancing in Starlight, set for an early 2019 release, as well as the localization of the Ryu ga Gotoku Studios-developed Fist of the North Star: Lost Paradise, planned to launch on October 2, 2018.
Demos for all of the SEGA / ATLUS-announced titles were available at the booth, marking the first-ever playable hands-on demos for the English localizations of Persona 3: Dancing in Moonlight, Persona 5: Dancing in Starlight, Fist of the North Star: Lost Paradise, Valkyria Chronicles 4, and Yakuza Kiwami 2. A demo of Shining Resonance Refrain was also released to the public and available during the show. The demo is currently available on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. New trailers were premiered for each of these games at the show, all of which can be viewed on the SEGA and ATLUS YouTube channels, or by clicking on the game titles above.
Finally, while not playable at the show, ATLUS also revealed new gameplay footage of Catherine: Full Body, a seductive and mature romantic action-adventure puzzle game from the makers of the Persona series, as part of a new trailer being shown on the show floor.
