Atlus Delays Persona 3, Explains To Fans

What could be the last great RPG of the PS2 generation has been delayed, according to Kotaku and a recent e-mail notice sent by Atlus. Unfortunately, we don't have a new release date for Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 3, but we don't expect the delay to be lengthy. Atlus cites a manufacturing error in the art book (included with every copy of the game) as the reason for this delay...it may seem trivial, but props to the publisher for a desire to get it right.

Once they're done, we'll get a higher quality book, and thus, an overall better product. The e-mail Atlus sent is as follows:

"Due to a manufacturing error with regard to the Persona 3 Art Book, the title will regretfully narrowly miss its scheduled ship date of July 24th, 2007. This was an unforeseen scenario, and one regretfully out of our control.

Presented with the choice of compromising on the quality of the art book, or shipping the game without said extra, we decided to have the art book redone with a higher quality binding, which will cause a very short delay in the ship date of the title.

While all other materials and packaging related to the game are complete, we were unwilling to sacrifice the art book, and as such will expedite the manufacturing process to the best of our ability in order to release the title as soon as is possible.

We appreciate your understanding and will release a formal announcement when Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 3 ships.

Well, it's good to know that some publishers have standards.
