CLASS OF HEROES TARDY, GETS DETENTION UNTIL JUNE

IRVINE, CALIFORNIA -- MARCH 30, 2009 -- Atlus U.S.A., Inc. today announced that Class of Heroes, the upcoming first-person dungeon crawler for PSP® (PlayStation®Portable) system, will be delayed until June 9th. The anticipated RPG, an homage to the genre classics, promises to bring expansive character and party customization options and deep, involved dungeon crawling to PSP system owners across North America.

"Just days prior to manufacturing, a show-stopping bug was discovered," explained Aram Jabbari, manager of PR and Sales. "We will under no circumstance ship a product with foreknowledge of such an issue, and so we must delay the game to resolve the problem and deliver a final product to our fans that lives up to the high standards we aspire to and that they deserve."

Class of Heroes is now scheduled for release on June 9, 2009 with an MSRP of $39.99.
