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?

Marie's persona in Persona 4 Ultimax is so pretty

Beating on people with your handbag is less cool than beating on people with a folding chair, but it's still pretty cool. Also, throwing presents at them. Very sweet. Marie will be paid DLC for Persona 4 Ultimax. And can we talk about that music? So fun. more

Persona Q coming November 25, let's loop the opening until then

Persona Q, the chibi 3DS amalgam of Persona 3 and Persona 4 characters, has a North American release date: November 25. The opening is still amazing. The premium edition is pretty nice, too. Shadow of the Labyrinth has won me over since its announcement -- or maybe it's just the dearth of Persona -- so I'm pretty ready.more
