When we first pored over a recent email sent to us by Atlus -- a GIF-filled newsletter dated June 23, 1999, which is not today's date in the very least -- we thought we had inadvertently traveled between the folds of time while we slept. (Again.) Now, we've got another theory: Atlus might be hinting at a U.S. localization of its PSP port of Persona 2: Innocent Sin
, which arrived in Japan last month.
The time-traveling newsletter doesn't actually mention the title, but its artificial date syncs up nicely with the original PSOne Innocent Sin's release date in Japan. Of course, we may just be reading too much into this altogether. Maybe Atlus really did just want to send us an email extolling the virtues of Star Wars: Episode 1: The Phantom Menace
, and providing some helpful tips on surviving Y2K.
