Index Corporation and Nintendo announce new collaboration
Index Corporation (headquarters: Setagaya, Tokyo, CEO: Yoshimi Ogawa) has announced a collaboration with Nintendo Co., Ltd. on a new RPG for the recently launched game console, Wii U™. The collaboration was unveiled as part of the Nintendo Direct presentation on Wednesday. The title is a joint effort between the ATLUS brand and the Nintendo Fire Emblem series.
The ATLUS brand has released many popular titles including the Shin Megami Tensei series and Persona series. Recognizing the raving fan base of the Shin Megami Tensei series, and considering ATLUS brand’s commitment to high quality content and game development, the partnership is a natural fit for the two brands.
Currently, Index is earnestly proceeding with development, while Nintendo will deliver news out to the customers.
Prior to this announcement, Index had only developed and released games from its own brand, ATLUS, but this collaboration is intended to be a new step for multimedia expansion.
From this joint development, Index hopes to expand its own brand, as well as optimize the efficiency of its resource placement and increase revenue.
