Munich, Germany, July 6 - Deep Silver, SEGA® of America, Inc., and Atlus U.S.A., Inc.are entering a collaboration to publish multiple ATLUS- and SEGA-brand titles on consoles and handheld devices across all European & PAL territories.

The publishing deal will cover the wide array of future titles for both physical and digital versions across PAL territories, including the SEGA title 7th Dragon III Code: VFD, and the ATLUS titles Shin Megami Tensei IV: Apocalypse, and the hotly anticipated Persona 5.  

"We are delighted to have signed this publishing partnership and look forward to using all our pan-European publishing network to maximize the potential of the ATLUS and SEGA games" said Dr. Klemens Kundratitz, CEO of Koch Media/Deep Silver.

They'll be able to use that "anime fan on prom night" line for all of their Atlus game marketing.

This news saved my day and the upcoming year. I feared the worst for these games, but now they are going to get a PROPER RETAIL RELEASE.

They can't screw up the marketing with Atlus and Sega games, because that's done by their respective companies in the US. So this is straight up good news for everyone who have been waiting for these games in EU.

Awesome! Best news in days!

I wonder why Sega isn't publishing themselves? They have a European branch that would usually handle these kinds of things, right? If they do, maybe they were looking for a partner to help offset some of the risk?

They closed their European divisions a while back IIRC.

Oh...ok. Thanks for the reply, Sisibakbak!

They closed the Branch and opened it to restructuring almost everything. They're still present here. But mainly for Sonic and Segas Western Games like Total War or Warhammer. When it comes to the Japanese Games, they don't see a really profitable market in Europe. So, Sega Europe is a budget oriented Branch of Sega. If they are here or not don't make a big difference.

I send best wishes to my folks from Germany. Koch Media is a pretty strong party here in Europe. They actually publish every Square Enix Title in Europe for 15 years or even longer. Releasing the Sega/Atlus Titles under their Games Branch Deep Silver is quite a good idea since it worked with Catherine back in the days and this Games was presented in various European languages. So, great news, hope Sega and Atlus won't dump another European Partner, there aren't many left.

Feels like the mighty have fallen
