Atlus being absorbed, though its name shall remain

0

Now, now. It's not as bad as it sounds. Atlus, everyone's favorite Catherine developer/publisher, isn't being dismantled or shut down, but rather being merged into its parent company, Index Holdings, which purchased Atlus back in 2006.

The move is designed to increase efficiency and allow for better use of group resources. Besides Atlus, Index Holdings are also the masters of Index, a mobile game development outfit (connection to Persona 3 Social?), and anime studio MADHOUSE, who made Highschool of the Dead, Death Note, and like a billion other shows.

Representatives said that for the time being games will be continue to be released under the Atlus brand. That's good since, as an Atlus fanboy, I've been conditioned to open my wallet whenever I see its logo.
