    SCE/SCEJ probably should have bought them up. A bulk of their stuff, just from looking at Wiki is on the PlayStation platform and I’d figure they’d fit right in with the added benefit of being in that 1st party stable (sharing of tech). SCEA/SCEE have been building up this gen but SCEJ has pretty much been the same and hasn’t been expanding much.

    Hopefully Tecmo-Koei lets Gust function as they have been.

    Hope this doesn’t somehow effect releases of these titles here.

      @Wolfe: NISA was handling their titles here, right? Just means Tecmo-Koei’s NA branch would take over NA publishing now.
