Job listing suggests Atlus developing “PS4 high-end action game” [Update 2]

Unnamed company seeking 2D concept art production.


A job listing at Japanese careers site Creator’s Partner Fellows seems to suggest that Atlus is working on a “high-end action game” for PlayStation 4.

The job listing, titled “Seeking 2D Concept Design / Key Animation Talents! PS4 High-End Action Game,” says that it is “a job for the in-house team of a long-standing consumer game maker famous for its unique goddess (megami) and demon RPGs.” Its job contents are listed as the following:

  • A newly under-development PlayStation 4 project. We will tell you of the game’s style when you are interviewed.
  • As for the genre, it is a game that includes action-based battle elements.
  • “2D concept art production” is the main duty [for this job].

While the company that posted the job listing is not named, its location is listed as Setagaya, which is where Atlus’ office is located. The “consumer game maker famous for its unique goddess (megami) and demon RPGs” line also applies to Atlus.

Thanks, Hachima Kikou.

Update 5:28 a.m.: The job listing seems to have been removed.

Update 9:10 p.m.: We did not notice it earlier, but there is also a job listing for a UI designer that is still posted. Thanks, Persona Central.
