What!? No, Sega better localize the main SMT series (don't care about the spin-offs and yes that includes Persona) as well as Atlus other IP games.

Damnit damnit damnit damnit damnit DAMNIT!!!! Why Sega?! I mean, it's better than getting picked up by a console maker, but Sega's going PC-focused with everything but Sonic, they suck at localization, and quite honestly Sega of America sucks at advertising niche products. They better not mess with their business structure or things will go straight to hell...

Nintendo should buy Sammy...Yay!
But in all seriousness though...WHY?! The main reason why Bayonetta 2 was dropped was because of..''fianancecial'' issues! and SMT...it's probrobly japan only.

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.

But the first Bayonetta sold about 1 million. How is this a bomb?

The real question is, what does this mean for Shin Megami Tensei X Fire Emblem's future?

Avian fact of the week: The Moa, an extinct relative of ostrichs and emus that inhabited New Zealand, was the tallest bird that ever lived at 12 ft tall (3.6 m). It was also the only known bird to have no wing structure.

So potentially we'll be having Megami Tensei Pachislot machines, dozens of Persona freemium mobile games, and what may be an online social Etrian Odyssey with trading cards? What's not to like?

Because Sega is terrible with money. Another reason why I'm worried about this...

@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

Oh, I'd love to see Sega try and reenter the console realm. Things to look forward to with the Dreamcast 2: sneaking the system into stores without telling anyone, releasing half a dozen poorly supported add-ons and keeping 3/4 of their best games in Japan only. Sega's business acumen is fantastic!

Tomb Raider sold 4 million in 3 weeks and that was a bomb. Put that into perspective.

Apparently S-E went into the red solely because of the western market, when they released Tomb Raider, Sleeping Dogs, and Hitman Absolution in the same quarter, all of which sold millions worldwide, and still all 3 underformed. Not surprisingly, Square-Enix had to restructure the entire company after that...

No no no Squeenix, just no. If they failed to "meet expectations" and still sell millions of copies AND had to restructure, there is something wrong with the company, not the NA "ineffective" market. That's just poor management.

Hence why they restructured. That was pretty much why they fired their president, remember?

This is... not what I would have wanted. SEGA isn't exactly the best business out there, and their philosophy really doesn't mesh well at all with Atlus. Those day one automatic collector's edition stuff won't be a thing anymore. But even worse, this could basically just get rid of the chance of any more Atlus games coming outside of Japan. You know how SEGA loves to keep nearly all of their stuff in Japan. And with SEGA releasing nearly all of their games on PC or phones, this isn't exactly something I would have wanted. That's without mentioning SEGA's crappy western advertising for anything somewhat niche (I'm looking at you, Valkyria Chronicles).

Hopefully, SEGA's just using Atlus to make better localizations on their games and to keep pumping out the IPs they just acquired.
