Yakuza: Like a Dragon Is the Most Successful Entry in the Series Worldwide; SEGA Wants To "Globally Expand" Atlus' Games
According to SEGA's Shuji Utsumi, SEGA is looking to globally expand Atlus' games in light of Yakuza: Like a Dragon worldwide success
Speaking with Famitsu, as reported by ryokutya2089, SEGA's Vice President Shuji Utsumi confirmed that the seventh main entry in the Yakuza series has become the most successful release in the franchise thanks to its worldwide and multiplatform release. In light of this success, SEGA is looking into expanding Atlus developed titles globally with simultaneous worldwide multiplatform releases as well.
While select Atlus titles have been multiplatform releases, although not at launch, like with Persona 4 Golden and Catherine, this is definitely good news for the future. SEGA is already putting its global expansion plans into action with its future titles, as Lost Judgment, the second entry in the Judgment series, will be released worldwide on PC and consoles on September 24th.
