Japanese developer Atlus is expanding its business into the merchandising territory, thanks to a new online store in which fans will be able to purchase items related to their popular RPG series like Shin Megami Tensei/Persona. The website is going online tomorrow Monday, October 16, and for now it will offer a limited selection of Persona 5 items and a Jack Frost plush. However, the company wants to expand its collection in the future, and offer its items to other regions of the world.
The company clarified on a message posted on their website that all items will be put on sale this week as pre-orders that will be sent in November and early December. This responds to their logistic limitations and their desire to at least satisfy the demand in time for Christmas. They also want to assure fans that any item tagged as ‘Sold out’ or ‘No longer available’ in the coming days will be put back in the future.
Among the items put in sale at launch will be phone cases, stickers, key chains, T-Shirts, caps, or the aforementioned plushes of Jack Frost and Morgana, with the collection being expanded in the future with other types of goods and games.
The North American Atlus Online Store will launch tomorrow October 16 at 8:00 AM PDT.
