Sting and Atlus must have avoided the friendship ruining game Dokapon Kingdom. The two companies are pals. Moving forward they’re going to be best buddies. Atlus is now responsible for publishing and marketing Sting developed games in Japan.
Not a huge paradigm shift for North America where Atlus USA released Sting titles like Baroque and Yggdra Union domestically. In simple terms if Sting develops a game in Japan, Atlus Japan will publish it, and since their parent company is involved chances are good — no very good Atlus USA will publish the game overseas. Now to wait for the next episode of the Dept. Heaven series and a downloadable version of Baroque Shooting.
