While not specifically mentioned in the press release, Persona Central had already pointed out earlier on that the game was briefly listed at the Atlus/SEGA E3 exhibitor page.

UPDATE: Atlus U.S.A. has posted an update, stating that they can confirm what they’ve always known, “that there’s nothing wrong or “dangerous” about our product” and that only a “tiny number of Amazon sales have been affected”. In other words, Amazon’s claims that the pre-order was cancelled due to “dangerous goods” contained in the product appears to be false. Atlus has stated that anyone affected by the cancellations should contacted their retailer.

Atlus U.S.A. has issued a press release today regarding the formation of Studio Zero, a new internal studio of Atlus in Japan. We wrote more about the studio in an earlier article, and the official press release below contains more information. At the same time, Atlus of Japan has updated the new website and also posted a concept video for the new game the studio will be working on, currently titled PROJECT Re FANTASY.
