Atlus Sale Attracts Bid From SEGA - That's right, SAYYYYGAAAAH!!!!
The ongoing sale of Atlus has attracted the attention of SEGAs parent company SEGA Sammy, which is among those to bid on the company in the hopes of acquiring it.
Atlus parent company Index Corporation filed for civil rehabilitation (similar to bankruptcy protection in the United States) back in June before announcing last month that it would sell its subsidiaries, including Atlus.
According to Bloomberg Japan, Sega was one of about 20 companies to place a bid on Atlus, a Japanese game developer and publisher with an extensive history dating back almost three decades. The long list of games it has been responsible for releasing include those in series like Megami Tensei (and the spin-off Persona games), Etrian Odyssey, and Trauma Center. Other games its developed or published include Catherine, Game of Thrones, Demons Souls (it published the game in North America), and Dragons Crown.
