For your morning helping of news that makes no difference whatsoever, I present this announcement from Sega from this morning. Time to put your cool guy glasses on.

Remember when Sega Sammy bought Atlus parent company Index Holdings? That's already enough names for confusion, right? But right before this all went down, Atlus started calling itself Index on the business side of things, right before the filed bankruptcy last year.

When Sega bought them up, they established a subsidiary and changed its name to Index Corporation. But as of April 1, Sega will have Index (Digital Media) renamed, now going with Atlus and Atlus USA. Fun fact: the Atlus division has 121 employees total.

To make this even more confusing (and thanks to Siliconera for spelling it all out), a newly formed Index Corporation *cough* will focus on development and distribution. 

Atlus, now that you're there and working, can you dig into that Valkyria Chronicles vault and do something?

Some concoctions will leave you feeling sick to your stomach. You need look no further than Yukiko Amagi's culinary misadventures for proof of that. Other pairings seem to work far better than they probably should, like Atlus...more

Etrian Odyssey Untold 2 opening film is just stunning

Etrian Odyssey Untold II: The Knight of Fafnir may be crawling to Nintendo 3DS in Japan next week, but we still haven't heard anything about Atlus USA's plans for a western release.  Maybe we'll learn something after Persona Q comes stateside later this month. In the meantime, check out the Untold II's opening movie, courtesy of animation studio Madhouse. It's so pretty!more
