Atlus Can Use Sega’s Dormant IPs for Games


Sega recently acquired Index Corporation, with is the parent company of Atlus. What changes can we expect now that the companies’ powers have combined?

In an interview with Famitsu (translated by Siliconera), Sega Sammy’s Chief Operating Officer, Naoya Tsurumi, discussed the future of Atlus with the magazine. One of the big issues was brought to light was Sega would allow Atlus the use of its dormant IPs.

Tsurumi said, “While we have no intention of forcing this, we’d definitely love to have them utilize any of Sega’s dormant IPs.”

Some examples of these IPs include Jet Set Radio, Space Channel 5 and Sakura Wars. Project X Zone, a role-playing game for the 3DS developed by Monolith Soft and Banpresto, was released this year and featured several characters from these IPs. The prospect of seeing them in an Atlus-developed RPG is a pretty tantalizing thought for fans of the genre.

It’s also good to know that Sega will give Atlus some autonomy and will continue letting them do what they’ve been doing. Hopefully the marriage of the two brands proves to be beneficial for the companies and gamers alike.
