Persona 5, Shin Megami Tensei IV: Apocalypse and other Atlus titles will be Published in Europe thanks to Deep Silver. With SEGA having a publishing arm in Europe already the news of Deep Silver signing an agreement to publish Atlus titles in Europe comes as a bit of a Surprise. Beyond just publishing Persona 5, Deep Silver will also be publishing a series of Atlus titles, along with some select Sega games.

In a statement from Naoto Hiraoka, CEO of Atlus USA, Inc., and senior vice president of publishing at Sega of America he outlines that “In entering this partnership with Deep Silver, I am truly delighted we will be able to release our titles in the European regions.” he goes on to say “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.”
There is no release date for Persona 5 or the other titles involved in the Deep Silver publishing deal, however, Persona 5 is slated for a US release February 2017, so hopefully it comes to Europe not long after.
