This year, the greetings card features:

Happy new year! In 2018, we released “Dragon’s Crown Pro,” “Persona 5: Dancing in Starlight,” “Persona 3: Dancing in Moonlight,” in addition to new games such as “Etrian Odyssey Nexus,” and “Persona Q2: New Cinema Labyrinth.” “Persona 5” was also adapted into a television anime, and after over 2 years, it achieved 1 million sales in Asia, including Japan. Thank you very much for your kind support.
Starting with Catherine: Full Body releasing in February 2019, we are steadily preparing unannounced new titles. Please look forward to a follow-up report of Shin Megami Tensei V, as well!
