NIS America to publish more Atlus games in Europe after new deal

Tuesday, 9th April 2013 08:06 GMT By Dave Cook

Atlus will be bringing more of its titles to European shores following a deal with publisher NIS America. It seems fans of series like Etrian Odyssey, Shin Megami Tensei and much more will have a lot to look forward to in future.

Having just published Persona 4: Golden earlier this year, and Etrian Odyssey IV further down the line, NIS America’s new deal will see many titles head to Europe within a reasonable timeframe, not many months or years after their initial release.

Siliconera got in touch with the publisher to get a statement on the matter.

Vice president of European businessTakuro Yamashita replied, “NISA’s European producer approached Atlus USA to propose a partnership for publishing Atlus titles in Europe, and after discussing and finalizing everything, we came to an agreement

“NISA has self-published a large number of RPGs in Europe since 2009, and Atlus had a strong desire to license their titles to a company that had experience selling RPGs in Europe. So the talks between the two parties went very smoothly.

“Currently, the games are selected on a title-by-title basis. However, NISA is very interested in establishing a long-term relationship with Atlus to secure future titles from them.”

There you have it. What games would you like to see brought over to Europe? Let us know below.

    Oh thank god, lets hope Dragon Crown releases in Europe in 2013. Because the PS Vita release schedule is very barren. Soul Sacrifice releases in a month and we getting news about it within the week :D

    First thing all Japanese devs have to learn is to release globally on the same date.

    I guess Ghostlight got pissed off with them after that disaster Devil Survivor: Overclocked.

    But maybe this will end the stupidly long delays. Than again this is Atlus so i wont be holding my breath.
