Atlus Reveals Eternal Poison For US

Square-Enix may be looking to expand beyond the Sony platforms, but other dedicated veteran RPG companies are doing no such thing. Studios like NIS America and Atlus continue to support the PS2 with each new project - NIS's Ar Tonelico 2 is headed our way this December - and now, Atlus has yet another.

According to 411Mania, Atlus has officially revealed Eternal Poison for a North American release on the PS2. Each copy will feature a special soundtrack CD, and we're hoping we see it hit U.S. shores before the end of the year. From the early screenshots we've seen, the game appears to be a turn-based strategy/RPG blend, as there's one pic with a classic "game board" setup. But there should also be some cut-scenes and up-close-and-personal fighting within that structure, making for a diverse and entertaining experience. Well, that's what we assume simply by examining the very early screens; we have no official details on the title just yet. However, if you're one of the many RPG fans who have been disappointed in the lack of role-playing games on the PS3, you can always turn to the PS2.

As soon as more info comes to light concerning Eternal Poison, we'll be sure to let you know about it. NIS and Atlus...man, those guys know how to take care of their loyal fans, don't they?

I'm glad at least the PS2 is still getting RPGs (Persona 4, This, and Ar Tonelico 2)(as well as the PSP, Mana Khemai PSP) but it is disheartening to hear nothing for the PS3...

well developers are still taking advantage of being able to make makes for the PS2 for cheaper plus its open to a much larger market seeing as the PS2 has sold what now 125 million consoles or something, I think once the PS2 is done its 10 year plan a lot of those people will buy a PS3 and then we will see a lot of games for the PS3

Man, when is the PS2 going to die lol. Please start releasing RPGs for the PS3 before AT LEAST Q2 of next year... I know there are a few this year, Disgaea 3 and whatever else, but we need more now!

Christ! Enough of these's PS2 RPG's, all of them are just crappie little games based off anime, its obvious the PS3 is lacking in RPG's. Final Fantasys taking there time ( Too right after the disappointing FF12) So i need something while i wait for it, Oblivion just isnt the same.
