In the wake of the merger between Atlus and Index Holdings, a lot of gamers were in panic mode; thinking the worst would happen to many of their beloved series. Fear not however, as Atlus has issued an official response reassuring everyone out there that they are not going anywhere and that we will continue to see great games from them.
President/CEO of Atlus USA, Shinichi Suzuki had this to say about the merger in a newsletter to fans.
“We want to assure our fans and affiliates that Atlus remains in operation and will continue, as always, to support our beloved community with the finest quality game experiences possible.”
“The Atlus-Index merger allows us to achieve greater synergy among the Index group companies and further strengthens the foundation of Atlus, both in Japan and here in the US.”
This is great news as I personally am patiently awaiting Persona 5 on the PS3.
