Sega is now the proud owner of Atlus


I guess Atlus is going to have to stop looking at themselves as “the little guy.” Index Corporation, the parent company of Atlus, has been acquired by Sega in an auction that was completed yesterday.

According to the acquisition contract, Sega is now the new owner of Atlus’ game catalog (including popular JRPGs like the Persona series and the larger Shin Megami Tensei series) as well as the new employer of the company’s nearly 400 employees. Financial terms of the deal weren’t disclosed, but Bloomberg is estimating that Sega paid 14 billion yen ($141.5 million) for Atlus.

Atlus will be run by a new division within Sega known as Sega Dream Corporation and the acquisition is expected to be finalized on November 1, 2013.
