"Atlus is a very well established publisher and distributor of high quality video games and has a proven track record of sales and an excellent reach in the North American retail market," said Kalypso vice president Mario Kroll. "This partnership will provide Atlus with additional high quality video game content while offering Kalypso Media broader distribution and more effective sales, allowing us to concentrate on what we do best: making and promoting great games."
"For several years we have been providing limited distribution services to Kalypso Media," said Tim Pivnicny, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Atlus.
