Xseed grew today starting with the acquisition of Atlus Online from Index Digital Media. Atlus Online handles MMORPGs like BattleSpace, Knights of the Sky, Pandora Saga, and Shin Megami Tensei Imagine.
This new company has a rather familiar name, Marvelous USA, and will be run by Shinichi Suzuki, who is the current President and CEO of Xseed and former President of Atlus USA. Ken Berry will continue to direct publishing and localization efforts for console and handheld games. Tatsuya Nishioka from Marvelous AQL will handle digital titles from Marvelous Online.
“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.”
