Deep Silver have announced a new partnership with ATLUS and SEGA to publish their titles in Europe, and have shared their plans to publish Persona 5 in Europe.
It is expected that Persona 5 will land slightly later in Europe than in North America, launching in the latter on Valentine’s Day. The publishing deal will cover the wide array of future titles for both physical and digital versions across PAL territories, including the SEGA’s title 7th Dragon III Code: VFD and ATLUS’ Shin Megami Tensei IV: Apocalypse. It is also expected that Deep Silver will also publish Hatsune Miku: Project Diva X in Europe, too.

“We are delighted to have signed this publishing partnership and look forward to using all our pan-European publishing network to maximize the potential of the ATLUS and SEGA games” said Dr. Klemens Kundratitz, CEO of Koch Media/Deep Silver.
“In entering this partnership with Deep Silver, I am truly delighted we will be able to release our titles in the European regions,” said Naoto Hiraoka, CEO, Atlus U.S.A., Inc., and senior vice president of publishing, Sega of America, Inc. “Not only does the deal span multiple titles, but Deep Silver has a strong presence in European and PAL retailers. They have a strong passion for being able to deliver physical games to our fans in those territories, which we hold in high regard.”
ATLUS has said that release dates for their titles will be announced “in the coming weeks”, so keep your eyes peeled.
