ATLUS’ Mother Company Owes a Lot of Money to a Lot of People, Including Kadokawa and Nintendo

We already knew that ATLUS’s mother company Index Corporation filed for Civil Rehabilitation (the Japanese equivalent of a soft Bankruptcy) a few days ago, and today we finally know who the main creditors are

If Dragons Crown came to Wii U
I would be so Happy

Why? This game is coming to PS3 and Vita. You don't like it?

He can't wish for it to be ported to a particular system? Is that a crime against this stupid brand loyalty people are obsessed with?

It's not like he's wishing PS3 and Vita owners can't get it.

Nintendo could just take like 50% stock in exchange for no debt and then Atlus games would be over in US on Wii U and 3DS more.

looks like it will be a fun game.

Yeah but that's not exactly what this article is about... oh well.

Nintendo & Atlus, WIIU may as well live for decades.

SMTxFE at least means that Nintendo will have to do something about it, i say buy it. Their console still get the most ATLUS games anyways.

jc485732026d ago

man, Kadokawa may as well absorb Atlus.

OrangePowerz2026d ago

Sony or Nintendo should buy Atlus or anybody else as long as it's not MS.

Kenshin_BATT0USAI2026d ago

I personally hope no one buys them and they become independent.

OrangePowerz2026d ago

If they have the finances for that yes, but I'm not sure they have.

DarkBlood2026d ago

remeber they can not be bought out by a
non-japanese so theres nothing to worry about with microsoft lol

im fine with either sony or nintendo or maybe a joint ownership might be easier

That's not going to happen.

As I understand it, this "mother company" stuff is a mistranslation--in Japan, Atlus is just the brand-name. The actual company name is Index. So when you hear Index is in trouble, and probably culpable, what that means is that ATLUS, itself, is in trouble.

So, really, there are two possible outcomes: they're bought out by a major publisher, or they dissolve into the ether and their franchises crumble to dust.
