ATLUS comments on Shin Megami Tensei 30th LIVE: Band of Shadows Concert
“Everyone at ATLUS looks forward to celebrating 30 years of Shin Megami Tensei at Anime Expo with what will be an awe-inspiring celebration for fans to attend and enjoy.
The evening will solely highlight the rich history of the series and will not include any major announcements.”
It’s quite notable ATLUS is already tempering fan expectations for ‘major announcements’ with that last line.
