Anime Expo 2023 will take place from July 1st to 4th, and the convention’s program schedule has been recently published. Previously, the “Shin Megami Tensei 30th Anniversary Concert” had been announced at the expo for July 1st. Now, there are two additional standout panels that seem to be teasing upcoming, Atlus-related announcements.
On July 3rd, Atlus will have a 50-minute industry panel in the morning. The description is as follows:
Join ATLUS West and be the first to know about all the exciting happenings! By the time you’re reading this, the cat is out of the bag.. head over to the mobile app for more details on our news and special guests! ***This room will NOT be cleared for the next panel.***
The statement “by the time you’re reading this, the cat is out of the bag” seems to be a program description meant to be seen after an upcoming announcement, but before the panel on July 3rd.
That evening also features a second 50-minute panel with the following description:
Get ready for an evening of excitement with ATLUS West as we bring you our latest and greatest! Head over to the mobile app for updated details on panel topics and our special guests. ***This room will NOT be cleared prior to this panel. This room will be cleared for the next panel.***
The descriptions for both panels seem to suggest that an announcement will be made, and that whatever it is will be discussed at length through these events.
Recently, in terms of possible upcoming Atlus announcements, the “P5T.JP” domain name was updated, indicating what could be a new Persona 5 game. Several unannounced titles were previously teased for 2023, and it seems that we might soon get a glimpse of what those entail.
