...and now we can anticipate the announcement of Persona 5 being Japan only.

In all seriousness, now the only hope that remains is that Sega Sammy keeps Atlus and Sega separate because if not...

On the other hand it might mean localization incidents like VC3 won't happen anymore but the glass half empty from this POV.

Let the Atlus farewells begin.

Its probably the best case for all systems. If one of the big three owned it a lot of fans would get mad! I also hope they let Atlus keep doing what they're doing. As they have done me no wrong!

This makes Sega the most well rounded publisher of the three. They now dabble in RPGS, Normal sonic stuff, and PC RTS games.

Really hopes this means we see a proper Phantasy Star game from one of Atlus Studios.

I took that as ripping apart index and integrating Atlus into Sega.

That would be cool. I like the Phantasy Star games, number 2 is still my all time favorite but the look and feel of the universe is enough to keep me going with the others.

This could be good or bad. My main worry is localisation.

If that's truly Sega's plan for Atlus, a little piece of my soul just withered and died.

Arcade and PC as well. (Which will mean they are pretty much identical).

@ogo79 Yeah and even though I hate phone games I can only hope that those iFools give SEGS all their cash... Whatever is necessary to bring us closer to the rebirth of Dreamcast 2 ;)

Bayonetta was dropped because Platnium makes nothing but bombas (evidenced by 101 Flopping). Sega is actually in a good place making a good amount from PC games and going hard into a few marquee retail releases followed up by digital content.
