Tecmo Koei Purchases Atelier Dev Gust

Tecmo Koei Purchases Atelier Dev Gust

Tecmo Koei has apparently made a move to make Gust, developer of the Atelier games, a wholly owned subsidiary through a stock purchase. Apparently, the popularity of the Atelier series prompted the purchase, since Tecmo Koei already served as a distributor for Gust.

It’s unclear how this shift will affect the relationship between Gust and NIS America, which localizes and publishes Gust’s Atelier games in the North America. Hopefully, Western fans of the series will still have the opportunity to play future games in the franchise, even if Tecmo Koei decides to leave NISA out of the picture.
