ATLUS was a modest Japanese company that needed an RPG to define itself and prove profitable, in order to carve out a space in a market primarily dominated by Dragon Quest and Final Fantasy. Shin Megami Tensei, its flagship series, struggled to achieve the desired impact, and over the years, low sales and a series of poor decisions almost erased the company from the map, although miraculously, it stayed afloat. After years of experimentation, they found the formula that would lead to success: Persona. This franchise, derived from Shin Megami Tensei, emerges from the human psyche and leaves no one indifferent: its captivating message has managed to enchant millions of players worldwide, thanks to the emotional involvement it represents and its invitation to reflect on our own nature.
