As of today, we can welcome Marvelous USA to the ranks of North American publishers. Parent company Marvelous AQL has decided to consolidate their American publishing under the new moniker, bringing the Xseed JKS brand back under the main company’s umbrella. Along with Xseed, Marvelous Online and Atlus Online will all be folded into the Marvelous USA unit, and none of their production schedules should be affected. Marvelous acquired the rights to Atlus’ online branch from Index Digital Media. The acquisition included MMO titles Shin Megami Tensei: Imagine, Knights in the Sky and other titles.
“Marvelous USA unifies our US operations under the global Marvelous brand while giving our customers topnotch products and support for both traditional and online social and mobile games,” said Shinichi Suzuki, President and CEO of Marvelous USA. “Our XSEED Games console and PC brand will continue to offer the quality games and service for which it is known, and Marvelous Online gives us expanded reach into mobile and online social gaming markets.”
