SEGA parent company SEGA SAMMY Holdings will acquire Index Corporation, the parent company of developer and publisher Atlus, in November, according to separate reports from Bloomberg and Japan’s Nikkei.
The deal is allegedly worth ¥14 billion (USD$141m).
Index Corporation filed for civil rehabilitation (similar to bankruptcy protection in the United States) in June. In August reports emerged SEGA SAMMY was one of around 20 companies circling Index.
Founded in 1986, Atlus is known for the likes of the Megami Tensei series (and the spin-off Persona games), Etrian Odyssey, and Trauma Center. Atlus was acquired by Index Holdings in 2006.
