Atlus’s parent company Index Corporation has posted a large loss as part of its Q2 financial report. The Japanese firm has enjoyed a great deal of sales success stories recently, but it hasn’t been enough to reverse the slump.

Siliconera reports that games like Persona 4: Arena and Persona 4: Golden have sold well, and helped the company’s game sales hit ¥5.65 billion / $58 million.

However, it ended up with ¥1.435 billion / $14.75 million of debt for Q2, with no reasons given as to where the loss has come from. The site adds however, that Index will be making lay-offs and reshuffling staff to stem the loss and pay back its debt.

We’ll have more on the index restructure as and when it happens.
