Today: 50% Off Atlus Games in the “HOJAEFJAAM” PSN Sale

Aram Jabbari's Avatar Posted by

Manager of PR and Sales, ATLUS

Friends of the Blog of PlayStation,

‘Tis a week — nay, why not call it an entire month — of celebration! Those of you who hath recently vanquished thy terrible foe known as “school” are now celebrating as much sloth and inactivity as your parental figures are willing to permit. Those of you who work for a living are looking forward to pleasant possibilities of the vacational variety, hoping some pool/beachside lounging is in your immediate future. The United States and Canada both celebrate their Independence Days.

Really, it’s a cool month (non-literally, as many are feeling right now, sadly), and as we mentioned earlier, there’s no shortage of cause for celebration. Which is why Atlus is so excited to announce the “Half Off Just About Everything For Just About A Month” (HOJAEFJAAM) PlayStation Network Sale, a 50-percent–off sale for just about every Atlus game in the PlayStation Store library!


Through July 31st, the “HOJAEFJAAM” (pronounced like it’s spelled) PSN promotion is cutting prices in half on pretty much every title Atlus has to offer via PlayStation Network, a collection that includes

Only $19.99 (originally $39.99)


The sleeper hit of 2011, Catherine challenges gamers’ minds and reflexes with its brazen mix of drama, horror, fast-paced action puzzles, and its daring exploration of the psychology of commitment and love. A terrific example of Atlus’ internal development studio firing on all cylinders, the game’s perfectly executed visual design and aural presentation, combined with the spectacular animated sequences of Studio 4°C, allow for true lasting impact on the player.

Trine 2
Only $7.49 (originally $14.99)


Trine 2 is one of the most beautiful, vibrant, lush, entrancing games ever made. It’s also a fantastic three-player (local and online) cooperative physics-based action platformer. Playing as one of three highly specialized characters, the Knight, the Wizard, or the Rogue — or all three, provided you’ve got two friends to play with — you will trek through a series of jaw-dropping set pieces filled with hazards to traverse and monsters to best, each area oozing with as much color as the talented developers at Frozenbyte could squeeze out of the light spectrum.

…Not to mention these other acclaimed hits, cult classics, and whatnot:

Class of Heroes
Crimson Gem Saga
Hexyz Force
Kenka Bancho: Badass Rumble
Knights in the Nightmare
Riviera: The Promised Land
Shin Megami Tensei: Persona
Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 2: Innocent Sin
Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 3 Portable
Yggdra Union
Rock of Ages
The Cursed Crusade

$7.49 (originally $14.99)

$4.99 (originally $9.99)
$14.99 (originally $29.99)

Visit the PlayStation Store on your PS3, PS Vita, or your PSP (as applicable) and take advantage of these killer savings. In fact, why not take all three out and try to use them at the same time? Just for laughs, and also to prove to the universe that you’re the ultimate PlayStation fan.

Surely you all have a PS Vita at this point? What? WHAT?! Don’t you know Persona 4 Golden is coming soon?! You know, the first Vita game to sell over 100,000 copies in Japan? WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR!?

The “HOJAEFJAAM” PSN Sale ends on July 31st.

Dear GREAT OVERLORD Aram Jabbari *Awesome Manager of Public Relations and Sales, at awesome Atlus* Have the awesome and Great minds at Atlus considered bringing the SUPER ROBOT WARS OG (Original Generation) to the PSN store? Or considered remastering the ps2 japanese versions with trophies and releasing it state side? Would Atlus consider publishing the upcoming PS3 SUPER ROBOT WARS OG version next year? Thank You

Even after completing Persona 3 seven times, I bought it again, just to finish one more time on my Vita.
I love you, Atlus. *-*

Bought Catherine, would love to add Demon’s Souls to my digital collection as well :)

Velmard said:

July 4th, 7:58 am

I think there is a problem because i remember that ” The cursed crusade” was 19.99, no 29.99, please confirm because is the only game that i want and for my is a lot of difference.

Thank for all the sales that you give to us

Thank you Atlus; my wallet was weighing me down. Thankfully, digital copies are weightless or my PSVita would be weighing me down now.

Where is 3D Dot Game Heroes?!

NoGodsOnlyMan said:

July 4th, 8:25 am

I have p3p on vita and that game is just a timeless gem, love it

I wonder, is persona 2 better than 3 to warrant the higher price,? only one way to find out!!!!


love atlus

Welmosca said:

July 4th, 10:17 am

Hey how about Trine 1 yep the 1st Trine?????????…I got Trine 2 for free and Catherine I’ll buy in disc.So no love for Trine 1?

Velmard said:

July 4th, 12:31 pm

Aram Jabbari, i know that you don’t put the price of the games, but i want to show you the mistake that make with “The Cursed Crusade”.
In this post:

The Cursed Crusade PS3 $14.99 (originally $29.99)

In this post:

The Cursed Crusade (now $14.99, original price $19.99)

In this post:

The Cursed Crusade ($19.99)

i don’t know if you can or not make something but is a BIG mistake and i want that the person of Atlus know this because they are making a good job with this sales, but in this specific game is not a 50% is only a 25%, and all can make a mistake

Thank for read me and please answer me when you can

Pd: sorry for my bad english

G-Cage said:

July 4th, 12:51 pm

What am I waiting for? The only game that could force me to buy a VIta is Monster Hunter. And that is still MIA on the Vita. And where is the English versions of Monster Hunter: Online and Monster Hunter 3?

PlatinumAura said:

July 4th, 12:54 pm

i’m a day late here but thanks Atlus I will definitely be picking up Knights in the nightmare, Persona 1 and Persona 2 before the end of the month. My vita is about to take some serious abuse!

darkfoxs1995 said:

Ya knoe ATLUS would make everyone love you EVEN MORE? Adding PS2 classic ATLUS games like Both the Devil Summoner and Digital Devil Saga games on there. You can’t forget Nocturne either. C’mon guys you know you want too. :D

Sekoku said:

Awesome sale, Atlus. <3

C_Y_P_H_E_R said:

July 4th, 3:32 pm

Please bring Trine 2 and Rock of Ages to the PS Vita.

Sevyne said:

July 4th, 4:49 pm

@NoGodsOnlyMan Persona 2 is a much much different type of game than Persona 3. It’s a really good game though. The reason for the higher price on it though is because it’s a newer PSP release than P3P. It’s an older game of course, but newer to the portable only being like a year old or so. Due to that it didn’t see a permanent price drop when all of the other Atlus PSP games did recently.

Sevyne said:

July 4th, 4:52 pm

@Welmosca Atlus didn’t publish Trine 1 and this is an Atlus sale.

jrowand said:

July 4th, 5:21 pm

Just bought Catherine at that price first time buying things digitally.

EternalDragonX said:

July 4th, 6:32 pm

Nicely done Atlus , even though I’m not a fan of any of your games as of the past 10 years I respect and appreciate acts like this for the fans.

lonewhitewolf1 said:

July 4th, 8:27 pm

bombevil said:

udarthjoker said:

July 4th, 9:47 pm

Hi, thanks for the great discounts.
LOL, I just noticed that you didn’t make/distribute Arcana Heart 3, just Arcana Heart 1 which sadly is not on the PSN.
btw, any chance we ever see another Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Summoner game? I liked Raido Kuzonoha’s games.

Elvick_ said:

July 4th, 9:50 pm

I’d like Persona 2: Eternal Punishment news too.

Limited physical release for the love of gods. I needs it for my collection…

D3drick7 said:

July 4th, 10:53 pm

Which does Atlus love more, our love or our money?

Pick one…..

iTofuMan said:

July 5th, 1:31 am

Good to see someone here actually catering to the portables. Going to be grabbing Persona 2 to finish up my collection of games from that series. and will probably pick up more portable titles. i would get Catherine, but i really want that Deluxe edition . other than that as usual Atlus by far is one of the greatest 3rd party devs and that they help out a lot more than Sony in general is doing on the portable side.

Heck i can be sure had Sony taken a hold of this i doubt any portable titles would have been in it. hence look at the Summer sale. zero portable titles, and yet here is Atlus doing their job at catering to the fans. Thanks!

Objection_boom said:

July 5th, 4:05 am

Wow, this sale would’ve been great if perhaps psn would let me add funds instead of always telling me I have an error and with holding me from not only making purchases but adding ANY money to my account. No internet or connection problems, so what’s the point if psn won’t bother to let us purhase anything, I only tried a billion times to uy Catherine, but to no avail because,oh, look it’s that pain in the ass error occured(80023102)
This sale would be cool’ if it perhpas psn would let us take advantage of it >.>

Welmosca said:

July 5th, 10:22 am

@Sevyne – Oh ok thanks…I didn’t knew.Really thought it was Atlus too.

jadashake said:

July 5th, 11:29 am

Want free $50 or $20 PSN cards??! Bamboo Wallet APP for Iphone and Droid…use code JS1128376 Ive gotten over $100 in PSN credit for free in a week!

theanacondavice said:

July 5th, 2:05 pm

Catherine to keep my PS3 busy and Class of Heroes, Kenka, and Persona 1 &2 (already have 3) to keep me busy on the Vita front all for $60!

Thanks Atlus! :D

ChanceDeath said:

July 6th, 12:57 pm

Atlus, you make my Vita purchase worth while, Sony on the other hand makes me weep and I go back to my 3DS.

Richter_ak-47 said:

July 7th, 2:08 am

Oh atlus, how i love you so. I only wish working designs was still around. Still I wouldnt mind seeing atlus do a remake of the original Lunar silver star story…i know they wouldn’t goof it up.

udarthjoker said:

July 7th, 8:54 pm

LOL, I wanted Arcana Heart 3 but I just saw that #3 is not by Atlus. Just Arcana Heart 1 and that is for PS2.

udarthjoker said:

July 7th, 9:00 pm

oh, an also THANKS A LOT! Atlus for still caring about the PSP, THANKS! you might be one of the few companies that still cares about the PSP. This way my psp will have even more playing time. (yes I still play with my PSP, and I am sure I am not the only one that still does. I will buy a Vita, but that doesn’t mean I will stop playing with my psp, so many great titles for the psp).

Star_Paladin said:

July 8th, 12:23 am

I was all ready for the Steam Summer Sale for my PC.

Then. Atlus.

Atlus kicks my door down, holds an evoker to my head and threatens to summon all my personas on me if I do not give them all my money.

Every Persona game and Catherine later, I am broke.

Dear Atlus:

There is a problem with SMT Persona that I bought and downloaded from the store which has caused problems for my PSP. It won’t let me save game data and if does save, the PSP freezes thus corrupting all my saves. I contacted Sony and they said the file itself is corrupted and to contact Atlus instead. I downloaded this over 3 times now and still with issues. I have a PSP 3000 slim with a Sony 2GB memory card. The SMT Persona game has 511 MB. Help?

Rainbowlover said:

July 9th, 1:26 pm

I’m gonna grab Catherine, I have been waiting forever for an affordable price drop for me. I will also think about picking up the first persona game because I’ve never played the series and know nothing about it. If I like the first, I’ll be sure to buy the rest and I have been interested in getting the 4th one for the PSVita so getting the first at a good price is awesome. Thanks Atlus!

Old_PopTarts said:

July 9th, 10:09 pm

quinaire said:

July 21st, 4:20 am
