During the NIS America streaming event earlier today, the company announced that it was teaming up with SEGA/Atlus to distribute a multitude of games throughout North America. This doesn’t mean that SEGA/Atlus is publishing them, NIS America is still the publisher on the box but SEGA is the distributor. What does that mean? I have no clue. Is this SEGA and NIS America team up to make it easier to distribute these titles to more mainstream shops?
SEGA is listed as distributing the following titles part of their SEGA and NIS America team up:
- Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana (PS4, PSvita)
- Cladun Returns: This Is Sengoku! (PS4)
- The Silver Case (PS4)
- Touhou Kobuto V: Burst Battle (PS4)
- Tokyo Tattoo Girls (PSvita)
- Culdcept Revolt (3DS)
- RPG Maker FES (3DS)
- Disgaea 5 Complete (Switch)
- Redout (Switch) (Nicalis published)
That’s quite the number of titles. What are your thoughts on SEGA and NIS America team up? I personally love it, I have always wanted SEGA to push more Japanese skewed titles over here and this is a good start. With SEGA already buying Atlus, would you guys freak out of they also picked up NIS America?
