Sega and Atlus have announced their plans for E3 2018, which include the announcement of two new Atlus games this week, as well as a new trailer to be shown at the event next week.
Two New Atlus Games Announced on June 7
Among the playable titles at the Sega / Atlus booth at the Los Angeles Convention Center, at West Hall booth #5222, will be two Atlus games that will be announced tomorrow.
SEGA is bringing a punch-packing playable line-up to this year’s show, where many landmark titles will have their first Western hands-on demos ahead of their upcoming worldwide releases, including a duo of new ATLUS titles being announced on June 7.
The current list of playable titles at the booth consists of the following Sega games:
- Shining Resonance Refrain
- Team Sonic Racing
- Valkyria Chronicles 4
- Yakuza: Kiwami 2
New Catherine: Full Body Trailer
Finally, it’s been a while, but ATLUS will finally be debuting some new footage of Catherine: Full Body as part of a new trailer being shown on the showfloor. A seductive and mature romantic action-adventure puzzle game from the makers of the Persona series. Catherine Full Body will include a new love interest, “Rin,” with distinct storyline elements for the character, and additional puzzle content. Vincent’s love life has never been so complicated and dramatic!
The game is slated for a Winter 2018 release for the PS4 and PS Vita in Japan.

Atlus and Sega Anniversary Comments
John Clark, Executive Vice President of Sega Europe
“With Atlus approaching its 5th anniversary as part of the Sega family, we’re delighted to finally have one unified stand at one of the most important gaming events of the year. We’re very excited to be showing the first romanticised Historical title in the Total War series alongside Team Sonic Racing on the very same booth as some of the most awaited western releases of Japanese titles. I have no doubt that everyone will find something to their taste on the Sega / Atlus booth this year.”
Naoto Hiraoka, President and CEO of Atlus U.S.A., Inc. and Senior Vice President of Publishing for Sega of America, Inc
“During the past year, we’ve seen a strong response from fans to key western releases in the Yakuza series and have heard their voices for more Valkyria Chronicles. As part of the wealth of IP owned by Sega, it is our pleasure to bring Yakuza: Kiwami 2 and Valkyria Chronicles 4 to fans at the show. This E3 also represents an important moment for Atlus as it nears its fifth year with Sega, and as part of that, we will have something to announce very soon for the west.”
The annual Electronic Entertainment Expo, one of the biggest regular video game trade shows, will take place this year from June 12-14, 2018.
