The Atlus Brand Will Carry On, Says Japanese HQ

Kotaku wrote:

Atlus's parent company is in trouble. It's being investigated and going through what sounds like bankruptcy. Scary times. But wait!

The good news is that Atlus USA previously told Kotaku that it was "unaffected" by the Index Corporation proceedings in Japan. Index Corporation is Atlus' parent company. But what about Atlus Japan? You know, where they make the games? That's the better news.

Today, Atlus Japan's official website and Twitter account and thanked everyone for the concern, adding, "From hereafter also, the development and sales of the Atlus brand as well as the consumer business will continue."

So, as the Japanese brand confirmed, the retail and download sale of Shin Megami Tensei IV will continue. Ditto for Etrian Odyssey Untold: The Millennium Girl, which was released on June 27. "Other retail and download titles that are currently on sale will continue to be sold as they are currently."

Atlus Japan also confirmed that Dragon's Crown will go on sale in Japan as planned on July 25 and 3DS game Devil Survivor 2: Break Record is still slated for release. Details regarding that release are scheduled for a later date.

And finally, Atlus Japan tweeted that the Persona Music Fes 2013, a Persona music event at the Nippon Budokan, will continue.

All of this is good news. Hope titles in development, announced and unannounced, are likewise not effected by Index's troubles.

A lot of people hope that, when ATLUS is mentioned. But, ATLUS does not publish games in the EU. Either Marvelous or XSEED will probably pick up this Vanillaware game later on... ;)

I pre-ordered a import copy of Dragon's Crown by the way.

Isn't INDEX being investigated for Enron Level fraud and is also on the verge of Bankruptcy. Unless Atlus is being sold to someone how int eh world are they okay. They sold to index in the first place due to company troubles irrc. While the curent slate of products and events are good to go, what about next year.

ATLUS games are the bread and potatoes of my video game diet these days. It would be awful if anything happened to such a wonderful developer.

Has anything been said of Shin Megami Tensei X Fire Emblem though? It seems like they haven't even started working on it yet and all this craziness going on has got me just slightly concerned on that project'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.
