Good news everyone. ACE has found a publisher for Zeno Clash, and it is none other than Atlus.

That’s not all though, come spring 2010, the updated version will have online and splitscreen co-op, along with some gameplay enhancements suggested by the community.
Also, players can expect a brand new mode for the game that Atlus is saving as a surprise.
Press release is after the break.
