Persona 5, 7th Dragon III Code: VFD and more coming to Europe via Deep Silver thanks to new publishing deal
Deep Silver, SEGA of America, Inc., and ATLUS U.S.A., Inc. have reached a publishing agreement to bring multiple releases from ATLUS and SEGA to European & PAL territories.
The just-inked deal will cover both physical and digital versions across PAL territories, including the upcoming SEGA title 7th Dragon III Code: VFD, and the ATLUS titles Shin Megami Tensei IV: Apocalypse, and the hotly anticipated Persona 5.
“We are delighted to have signed this publishing partnership and look forward to using all our pan-European publishing network to maximize the potential of the ATLUS and SEGA games” said Dr. Klemens Kundratitz, CEO of Koch Media/Deep Silver.
“In entering this partnership with Deep Silver, I am truly delighted we will be able to release our titles in the European regions,” said Naoto Hiraoka, CEO, Atlus U.S.A., Inc., and senior vice president of publishing, Sega of America, Inc. “Not only does the deal span multiple titles, but Deep Silver has a strong presence in European and PAL retailers. They have a strong passion for being able to deliver physical games to our fans in those territories, which we hold in high regard.”
SEGA and ATLUS have received much flak in recent years for the long delays between their stateside and European releases. Here’s hoping this new arrangement with Deep Silver ensures that our friends across the pond are able to get the latest releases from both studios in a more timely manner than they’ve come to expect.
