SEGA to acquire Index Holdings?

06 Aug 2013

Reports from Bloomberg JP suggests that SEGA is interested in Atlus’ parent company Index and has placed a bid for the company among 20 other companies bidding.

The bidding has gone as high as 20 billion yen (or approximately US $203 million) and if all goes well, perhaps SEGA will be the new owners of Index according to

The company apparently already helps distribute games for Atlus so it wouldn’t be too far of a stretch to see their partnership grow.

I wouldn’t mind a SEGA acquisition as long as SEGA lets Atlus do its own thing or at least lets them localise freely.

However, SEGA has gotten a lot better recently; after all they are bringing Hatsune Miku Project Diva F for the PS3 to the west this year.

Not to mention that both Atlus and SEGA have a pension for quirky and niche video games.
