Atlus brand will carry on
With the announcement of Index Corporation’s (Atlus’s parent company) financial troubles, many fans were worried about the developer Atlus’s fate. Though we previously learned that Atlus USA would be okay, Kotaku has translated some tweets from the Japanese company as well that thanked fans and assured them that the Atlus brand would carry on.
This is undeniably good news for fans of the company. Many fans were concerned that perhaps one of the developers would no longer be around if Index Corporation went under, but now we know differently.
Atlus is the developer of the classic Shin Megami Tensei series and the spinoffs, which include the ever popular Persona games. They also have acted as publisher for several other wildly popular games, such as the fiendishly difficult Demons Souls and its successors Dark Souls and the upcoming Dark Souls II.
With Atlus Japan officially continuing, what new games can we expect from the talented team?
