Atlus USA Says It Is Currently 'Unaffected' By Financial Troubles

Early this morning, we caught wind of bankruptcy-like "civil rehabilitation proceedings" at Index Corporation, the parent company of Persona-makers Atlus. Today, after Kotaku reached out for comment, the company's president tells us Atlus USA is "unaffected" by the proceedings at Index and will be carrying on day-to-day activities.

The full statement sent to Kotaku from Naoto Hiraoka, boss of Atlus USA:

Currently, Index Digital Media, Inc. and the ATLUS brand are unaffected by the Index Corporation proceedings in Japan. We’re carrying on day-to-day activities, business as usual. Shin Megami Tensei IV and Dragon’s Crown are still releasing on July 16 and August 6 respectively, and we’re licensing and publishing third-party titles such as R.I.P.D: The Game and Daylight. We want to thank all of our fans for their outpouring of support.

We'll let you know if and when we learn more.


    Damn, this is probably going to effect Persona 5.
