Tecmo Koei Purchases Atelier Series Developer Gust

#1Master_HapposaiPosted 12/7/2011 3:07:24 AM
Hungry to merge more, Tecmo Koei announced plans to purchase Atelier series developer Gust through stock acquisition. Soon, Gust will become a fully owned subsidiary. Tecmo Koei cited the popularity of the Atelier series as one of the reasons for the acquisition.

Prior to the purchase, Tecmo Koei (more specifically Koei) have been working with Gust for years as their game distributor. The relationship between Gust and Koei extended overseas where Tecmo Koei distributes Gustís games in North America and Europe. Itís unclear how this will affect the relationship between NIS America, the company that localizes the Atelier series in the West.

Atelier Meruru: The Apprentice of Arland is slated for release early next year. If the Tecmo cameos in Warriors Orochi 2 are any indication, we expect Rorona will be a guest character in Warriors Orochi 5 (if not earlier).

Sounds a lot better than what they have been making so far.

Um...

Okay, I'll say it right now, while I'm not really a fan of the Atelier Series and it's game play style, I'm shocked honestly. How the hell is this going to effect the games, if it has any effect at all? This is equivalent to Square-Enix buying the rights to Call of Duty. It's a very strange marriage.

Hmmm.... =_=;

I actually like NISA because they localize games despite sales (correct me on this). With Tecmo Koei, would they still keep localize GUST games...? I don't really like this :/

I would like the superpower to punch annoying cheeky fanboys over the monitor.

Sangoku Musou (Dynasty Warriors) and Atelier together? Sounds like Koihime Musou might find itself a very tough competition. :D
