NIS America have announced they will no longer be publishing Atlus games in North America and Europe. NIS America Marketing Director Takuro Yamashita told MCV that it has become a lot more difficult for them to publish games ever since Atlus was bought by Sega. Stating..
“Around ten days ago, we terminated our alliance with Atlus in Europe and the US. Atlus became very picky about selecting the European publishing partner after it was bought by Sega. It always cherry picked its EU publishing partner based on who offered the highest minimum guarantee on a title by title basis. I noticed that it was very difficult for NIS America to establish an equal-partnership with Atlus. Atlus and its European games have contributed a lot to the expansion of NIS America in Europe. I would like to express my greatest appreciation to them for that.”
