SEGA Shoulders ATLUS' Burden

SEGA is stepping in to purchase the parent company of struggling developer and publisher ATLUS, as announced in this press release (Adobe Acrobat format). Word is: "Under the agreement, SEGA will take over the operations conducted by Index, the bankrupt company that applied to the Tokyo District Court for the commencement of civil rehabilitation proceedings effective from June 27, 2013" (thanks Destructoid). According to Kotaku, the price tag for this is 14 billion yen (USD $141 million).

Does this mean we will finally get a new persona? Fucking travesty that the series skipped the entire current console gen.

Also the third version of the persona fighting game makes sense(when previous licensed fighters from the company never got sequels) since now they don't even have to pay a fee for the licence!

O god hope sega doesn't make the next persona a shitty handheld game like they did the valkyrie profile series. So conflicted by this news.
