From the article, "Atlus used to be our go-to company. When it came to a hot Japanese game, we would know in our hearts that Atlus would be there. Yet suddenly, in the span of a few years, XSEED Games is the company that we can really trust. While Atlus has stepped back and played things safe, primarily localizing Japanese games from its own development studio, cutting back on other localizations and publishing generic and less-than-impressive games like Rock of Ages and the forthcoming God Mode, XSEED is blazing a trail and testing its boundaries. XSEED has gone from publishing niche games like KORG DS-10, Flower, Sun and Rain, and Half-Minute Hero to providing the kinds of games that change people’s lives, like The Last Story and the entire Ys catalog."
