It looks like SEGA has bought Atlus parent company Index for 14 billion yen
Holy crap, guys. Nikkei is reporting that SEGA has come to terms to purchase Atlus parent company Index for approximately 14 billion yen.
There’s not much else, aside from this terribly Google translated version of the article:
“Index of civil rehabilitation proceedings in the game content production company, solidified a policy of management transfer substantially Sega Sammy Holdings. SEGA SAMMY acquisition the index with 14 billion yen to around November. At present, the company is promoting the debt compression business liquidation, I proceed with the restructuring to the axis of the core game business in the SEGA SAMMY under the umbrella.”
This has to be the largest purchase of another video game company SEGA has ever made.[Via NeoGAF]
