I don't think Capcom is interested in much of anything, lately.

Besides crushing dreams I guess.


Monster Hunter.

In Japan, anyway...

Not like it ever mattered though. Capcom couldn't have afforded to buy up Atlus even if they wanted to.

No really. Capcom's worth less than Atlus' asking price right now.

And then I remember there's only been like five SMT related games I really enjoyed playing anyway, and wonder why I even cared in the first place.

Am I the only one who would think an Atlus created Phantasy Star game would be insane enough to work? (Better than Tri-ace...)

Anyway, not really sure what to feel on this. If Sega leaves Atlus to do their own thing, s'all good. If not..ugh.

Wouldn't matter though, it'd never leave Japan even if it did happen.

Yup, Sega seems to have completely given up on Phantasy Star in the west...and Yakuza...and Valkyria Chronicles...and they gave up on the Shining series years ago...err, what do they localize, again?  I guess there's...Sonic...

OK, we did get that Hatsune Miku game.  That's a small miracle, really.  On the other hand, being a rhythm game without any kind of story it was probably really easy to localize.  With Project Diva F 2 announced I wonder what the odds of getting that are...

I thought Nintendo had Sonic now, or was I imagining that.

Hah, if Nintendo owned Sonic maybe they could actually make a decent Sonic game...but no, that character definitely still belongs to Sega.  It's their mascot!

Maybe you're thinking of the "Mario and Sonic at the Olympic Games" series, a cross-over with both characters (in case you couldn't tell from the title...).  Though that's still developed by Sega with Nintendo's permission.

Wow. It seems like SEGA now focuses on producing mostly shit, and keeping the few non-shit titles Japan only. It's a great business model. Bastards.

And here's the list without Aliens: Colonial Marines shitting up the list.

I could've sworn they had more titles than just this and technically A:CM? Either way, that's a lot of ports.

Admittedly without Atlus fully acquired yet the true test will be once Nov 1st has come and some time has passed. Still, if they felt the need to lay off at Sega USA in advance it does imply there's some value in Atlus USA for them.
