Zedal rubber strapSEGA/Atlus USA

Yesterday, SEGA announced that from now on, they would publish Atlus USA’s games. This is basically the conclusion of SEGA’s acquisition of Atlus, which began in 2013. For fans, nothing will change: Atlus USA will keep on operating independently, as usual, with no impact on localisation or the brand itself (which will still be used). But for SEGA, this change will allow them to streamline their business operations.

Also, SEGA announced that Ivo Gerscovich was the new head of the Sonic brand and its related businesses in North America, Europe, the Middle East, and Australia. He will also serve as both the Sonic chief brand officer and senior vice president of Sega of America.
