NIS America No Longer Publishing Atlus Games in Europe

News ATLUS NIS America


For a while now fans of Atlus games in Europe have been able to enjoy a near simultaneous release schedule with their North American counterparts but it seems that is going to be coming to an end. NIS America‘s MD Takuro Yamashita has spoken with MCV and he has stated that the company has “terminated our alliance with Atlus in Europe and the US.”

The reason stated appears to be Atlus’ merger with Sega as he goes on to state that “Atlus became very picky about selecting the European publishing partner after it was bought by Sega. It always cherry picked its EU publishing partner based on who offered the highest minimum guarantee on a title by title basis. I noticed that it was very difficult for NIS America to establish an equal-partnership with Atlus.”

Whether this means that fans of Atlus games will need to wait for over a year for English releases of games in their region, like Shin Megami Tensei IV, is currently unknown.

After playing games since a young age and getting into anime a bit later on its been time to write about a little bit of everything.
