As more and more players leave the on deck circle and become Steam Deck owners, the fine folks at Sega/Atlus would like to remind these newly mobile PC gamers that a bevy of their offerings has been tested as “great on deck“. This means they can be hanging out at Junes while waiting in line at Target, traversing the streets of Kamurocho while waiting for your turn at karaoke, and making some crazy money in the back of your Uber. The possibilities are there and plentiful.
