But guess what happened: Peter Jackson announced that he would in fact direct it, and you got a heck of a lot more excited. Right?
Remember Dragon's Crown, the next project from Vanillaware announced at last E3, a multiplayer action RPG with beautiful hand-drawn visuals slated to come to PS3 and PS Vita?
BREAKING NEWS: Atlus is taking over publishing duties in Japan and North America! What's more, key (and very talented) members of the Atlus internal development team will be involved with the project as producer(s).
You know, some of the people who've worked on games in the critically acclaimed Persona series. Yeah, we know: we're stoked, too!
What does this mean for the game? For one, it means that it's going to be better than ever. It will, however, come a bit later than originally...
