Which of the Big 3 are going to buy Atlus?

Sony, Nintendo or Microsoft?

In terms of likeliest:
Nintendo>Sony>Microsoft.

Nintendo due to FExSMT and some upcoming 3DS games. Not to mention the support they gave to the 3DS.

Sony due to Persona.

MS due to lack of JRPGs and Japanese-centric games.


I wonder what the Sony fanboys would feel... if Nintendo up and grabbed Atlus and all of its IPs, including Persona.

I really hope if someone buys them its not the big 3 because I don't want atlus games to be exclusive to platforms. If anyone buys Atlus I hope its square enix.

I don't think that'd be a great idea.

Maybe Marvelous? They already have a partnership for Atlus Online in the US now.

My gut reaction at Squeenix is bleh, but realistically they have been a good publisher. Better than Nintendo getting Atlus and not letting them localize 3rd party super niche games like Code of Princess (since they wouldn't be worth the effort financially), nor letting them give first-print bonuses with every game.

Uh... except that all of SE's non-Final Fantasy stuff has been published by Nintendo for the last 5 years because SE hasn't through it was financially viable to do so, so I think Nintendo would be preferable if that's your concern.

I think you're a bit confused. Atlus had essentially nothing to do with Demon's Souls. They simply published the game in NA. From Software and Japan Studios made the game, Sony published it in JP and Namco in EU.

Lmao, sure, I can see Square Eidos buying them just to kill off their presence in the west. Just like they did with Enix.

Then it would be sad that they will still have to ask Nintendo to publish their titles in the west, lol.
