ATLUS announces ATLUS-O-Weenie 2011 Costume Contest

ATLUS announces ATLUS-O-Weenie 2011 Costume Contest

Every Halloween, kids and adults alike get ready for the tradition of dressing up to rustle up some yummy treats. Fans of the titles published by Atlus are able to dress up as their favorite characters from the popular games and submit entries for a chance to win one of many great prizes. Each year Atlus has held their ATLUS-O-Weenie for gamers to show off their best themed outfit.

This year will add three new categories in addition to the number one fan-picked entry and four randomly chosen winners. There shall be a best Catherine themed, best KoFXIII themed, and best Persona themed category. Vice President of Sales and Marketing, Tim Pivnicvy, had this to say:

“With so many games with characters that fans have really developed a strong connection to, we felt that it made sense to give each of these categories some special recognition.”

Prizes will include a $300 gift card for the grand prize winner, $200 for the winner in each special category, and $25 for the four randomly selected runner-ups. Not to mention that the first 200 successfully approved entries will receive a free Steam copy of Atlus and ACE Team’s quirky action/strategy title, Rock of Ages. Overall, prizes that definitely seem better than that candy bar you’ll goggle up before Halloween even gets here.

Want to enter? All participants have from noon PDT on October 18th until 11:59am PDT November 11, 2011. From then until 11:59pm PDT November 18, 2011, everyone can vote for their favorites. ATLUS-O-Weenie is open to those 18 years of age and older who reside in the United States and Canada. To submit your entries, click the link here.
