In a recent press release, Atlus has announced that Deep Silvers will be publishing Atlus/Sega titles in Europe, including distribution of physical releases.
Stop me if you’ve heard this before:
“We’re working on it.”
It’s an oft-used PR phrase that people have come to see as a general throwaway response. And while I can’t speak for every case, I can at least tell you that when it comes to publishing our games (and SEGA’s!) in Europe, it’s true. We are working on it. Or were, really, since we just inked a deal with Deep Silver to release multiple upcoming titles in Europe. Physical versions.
“So wait, does that mean Persona 5 will get its own European release?”
“Shin Megami Tensei IV: Apocalypse?”
Not to mention the SEGA title 7th Dragon III Code: VFD, which will also be published by Deep Silver. (Reminder: SEGA owns ATLUS!) Plus several other titles that haven’t been announced yet!
We aren’t ready to share release dates for those just yet, but for all our fans in Europe, we can finally say “we worked on it, and now we’ve got an answer for you.”
We’ll be working closely with Deep Silver to bring information specific to the PAL region releases for both the current and upcoming titles. But for now, we are just relieved that our EU fans have an answer to “will these titles release in Europe?”
