i hope sega allows atlus to do what they really are according in their plans... if SMT remains to ninty so does Persona remains to SONY, hope it stays that way..

and can sega allow atlus USA to localized Yakuza, valkyria chronicles, phantasy star and any other titles that didnt leave japan if they do not want to do it by themselves?

I swear to god if SEGA dont localise their games I''m never buying any Sega product ever again - everyone knows that Sega are like with localisation

It's a good thing Disgaea is in the hands of Nippon Ichi Software.

One of the good things about buying Atlus is that Atlus does know how to sell niche titles in the West, so the chances of seeing a Yakuza 5 in the West did just increase.

Persona 5 now featuring Shadow the hedgehog.
Persona 4S Chie falls in love with Sonic.
Ettrian Oddesey after IV is dead the franchise sells even less then Valkyrie Chronicles III.

So it's finally over. It'll be interesting to see how this affects Atlus. I hope Sega localizes the more popular series at least.
