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.
