SEGA says it’s “very interested” in releasing Atlus games in Europe
Posted on 1 year ago by Brian(@NE_Brian) in General Nintendo, News | 9 Comments | 0 Likes
Atlus and NIS America recently terminated their relationship. In Europe, it’s an interesting situation. The two sides no longer working together means NIS America won’t be handling any of Atlus’ releases in Europe going forward.
SEGA SVP of commercial publishing John Clark relayed to MCV that the company is “very interested” in taking over NIS’ role. He said:
“We’re very interested in bringing all of the group’s Japanese content not just to the West, but to Europe in particular. We are always trying to find a way. And that’s an on-going process. That’s something we are continually assessing and talking to and if there are really strong opportunities to support the Japanese content in Europe, we’ll do it.”
You would think that SEGA would want to be in charge here since they’re Atlus’ parent company. Hopefully it all works out in the end!
SEGA has no plans for 7th Dragon III Code: VFD in Europe currently, looking into it

7th Dragon III Code: VFD will be arriving in North America this summer. Unfortunately, there hasn’t been any news for European gamers, and there’s still not a whole lot new to report.
SEGA did address the RPG’s European status in a new video posted today. The company’s Dan Sheridan mentioned that there are currently no plans to bring 7th Dragon III Code: VFD to Europe, but added: “There’s nothing we can confirm today, but we are looking to see if it’s something we can make happen.”
Here’s the video in question:
SEGA shares details on 7th Dragon III Code: VFD DLC
Once 7th Dragon III Code: VFD hits store shelves, new downloadable content will be made available. SEGA shared information today about what plans it has in store on this front.
First, a free in-game bonus item will be distributed at launch. The Nagamimi doll will be free forever, and provides unique voice interactions between it and whatever voice actor you selected for your protagonist (of the 40 to choose from).
On top of that, seven additional DLC quests will be rolled out that can either help players along with XP/money boosts and unlockable characters, or challenge players with a post-game boss rush. Here’s the full rundown:

SEGA says Sonic is “a perfect fit for theme park partnerships”, will have an E3 presence

Global License’s May issue has an article dedicated to Sonic. Chief brand officer Ivo Gerscovich along with SEGA of America’s Kisten B. Zimmer had plenty to share about the character.
One topic discussed is SEGA’s interest in bringing Sonic into theme parks. Specifically, there’s a quote from Gerscovich in which he states, “The [Sonic] brand is a perfect fit for theme park partnerships.” There have been other recent hints about this before, so it seems quite possible that it’ll happen at some point.
Global License also indicates that Sonic will have a presence at E3 next month. The article states that “SEGA has a lineup of events planned for the Beloved Blur Blur’s anniversary that started with a Twitch panel at SXSW and will be followed by events at PAX, E3, San Diego Comic-Con, New York Comic-Con and a 25th anniversary party at the House of Blues in San Diego.” Much of this we knew about previously, but the E3 part does appear to be new.
Other than that, Global License’s article talks about merchandise, YouTube, and Twitch plans. There’s nothing in there about a new Sonic game, but any news on that front would come from a big event like the 25th anniversary party, which will have “surprise announcements”.
