Update (2015-08-19): Following the discovery of the three new domain names, NeoGAF user MysticDistance has also discovered that Atlus has registered the domains “atlus.hk” and “atlus.sg“—top-level domains for Hong Kong and Singapore respectively—on August 17, 2015, four days after the others initially found.

According to a WHOIS domain lookup, Atlus has recently registered three different official domain names for the company as of August 13, 2015.

With “ATLUS CO.,LTD.” as the registrant organization, the following are the three domains: “atlus.tw,” “atlus.asia,” and “atlus.us.” .tw is the Internet country code top-level domain for Taiwan, .Asia is the top-level domain extension for Asia and the Pacific, and .us is, of course, the one for the United States.

atlus.asia

The WHOIS domain search for “atlus.asia” brings up the following information:

atlus.asiaatlus.us has a similar WHOIS profile to that of atlus.asia.

This could imply the impending launch of Atlus company websites for other regions in Asia, especially considering that China was reported to fully allow video game console sales across the country since its 14-year ban last month, along with a PlayStation China Conference 2015.

These registrations could also simply be measures put in place to officially register the domains to ensure that no one else does.

Relatedly, in 2013, the Persona 5 official domain was discovered to have been registered in July, four months before the game’s official announcement.
