In the past we’ve already featured fanart related to SEGA and Atlus characters on our website, and today we’d like to share Koyorin‘s artwork with you. I think you’ll agree that it looks really impressive! Below you can find a large selection of Koyorin’s artwork from the past 3 years that was based on various SEGA and Atlus franchises. On the side of Atlus and Vanillaware you’ll find fanart based on the Persona franchise, Catherine, Dragon’s Crown and Odin Sphere, while on the SEGA side there’s artwork of Selvaria from Valkyria Chronicles, Bayonetta, as well as Hatsune Miku and KanColle.
It appears the first result of the end of the partnership between NIS America and Atlus in Europe has become visible, as Dragon’s Crown was removed from the EU PlayStation Store. Curiously, the game was actually part of the Big in Japan sale which we covered recently, making the removal of the game even more of a surprise. Fortunately, it appears the game will be returning to the PlayStation Store, as Atlus will be selling the game directly. NIS America has issued this statement to various gaming websites:
With regards to our previous statements on Dragon’s Crown for the European PSN, we must extend our deepest apologies to Atlus and European fans regarding the incorrect information about the removal from this store.
The removal of Dragon’s Crown from the European PSN was part of NIS America’s and Atlus’s mutual agreement on this title. We are happy to announce that Dragon’s Crown will be available directly from Atlus in Europe through PSN.
Please look forward to Dragon’s Crown returning to the European PSN soon.
Whether or not more Atlus games published by NISA will be rendered unavailable on the EU PlayStation Store is unclear, as NISA Europe doesn’t appear to have all the information themselves. It also not clear if the game will be back on sale on the EU PlayStation Store before the end of the Big in Japan sales.

In one of our earlier articles we reported that various SEGA games are currently being discounted during Sony’s Easter Sales on the EU PlayStation Store. Now, the US PlayStation Store is getting a range of discounts of its own. Like in the EU sales, these include Yakuza 5 and the Project DIVA F games (although unlike in the EU, Project Diva f on the PS Vita isn’t being discounted).
