Atlus Atlus Atlus...they just don't get it do they?
See, they had the chance to release their games from Nintendo systems from the very beginning. The issue is that they chose not to. Their stubborness to not release games outside of the ones that you developed games blew your chance for getting free money.
Let's start with Persona. What game in the series besides this spin off have they ever bothered to port on a Nintendo system even before the Switch?
The DS clearly had a large market for RPGs and is certainly powerful enough to atleast support 1-3 at the time but then they instead released them on PSP.
The 3DS outdid the Vita by a crapload but then they again, stupidly ignored the market for the 3DS and opted to be a Sony fanboy and release it on the PS4 and Vita.
And that's just Persona...what about Shin Megami? They released them on a mix bag where some are on Nintendo exclusive and others are other platform exclusive. Still to this day, Nocturne hasn't been ported multiplat. When the Swtich was out, they didn't bother to atleast take a nudge at releasing some of their older games to the Switch platform.
By now, Atlus should have just lost and remained bankrupt but the problem is that SEGA another master of stupidity owns them and decides to let them do whatever the hell they want to do. Atlus may not lose a lot but when considering that they need a survey to actually see the demand of their games to be ported on the best selling console right now is laughable.
I'd rather wished that Nintendo could buy them because atleast Atlus's exposure to RPGs can give Nintendo the push needed to focus on the RPG audience. That and they could potentially be the Golden Sun devs assuming they don't pull another Tokyo Mirage session crap.
