OverviewAtlus is a Japanese video game developer and publisher that was founded in April 1986, and is based in Shinjuku, Tokyo. In November 2006, Index Holdings acquired Atlus by buying a majority of its stock.
Their best-known creation is the Megami Tensei series, one of the largest role-playing franchises in history. The company's mascot is Jack Frost, a popular recurrent demon character from the series. While Megaten has never been as popular as many of its contemporaries, its games are often well received by fans and critics alike, with Shin Megami Tensei often considered a landmark of the series. Besides Megami Tensei, Atlus is also known for their Trauma Center series and several stand-alone games in various genres.
