Shinichi Suzuki was the President and CEO of Atlus USA from 2004 to 2012. During that time Atlus USA grew the Shin Megami Tensei and Persona series plus picked up a bunch of titles like Baroque, 3D Dot Game Heroes, and Demon’s Souls.
Mr. Suzuki is now the President, CEO, and CFO of XSEED Games. “I have always respected XSEED Games, so this was an opportunity I could not pass up,” said Suzuki. “This is an exciting time for the industry and our company, and I look forward to navigating a course of success through the exciting changes in store as we advance XSEED’s publishing efforts by bringing even more highly anticipated titles to market across multiple platforms.”
“Suzuki-san brings a tremendous wealth of knowledge and experience that will no doubt benefit XSEED Games and our fans,” said Executive Vice President Ken Berry. “I am looking forward to working with him to further build upon the legacy that we built eight years ago when we formed the company as we position ourselves for an even more exciting future.”
XSEED’s next major title is Ragnarok Odyssey for PlayStation Vita. Orgarhythm is also slated for release this fall. We hear a spooky sequel may get localized too…
