Atlus is a video game company known for making quirky and arguably original RPG's and strategy games for various different Nintendo handhelds and consoles (though mainly the former). Notable video games published by Atlus include, though are clearly not limited to Snowboard Kids, various Trauma Center games, and a host of GBA RPG's. In 2013, Sega bought Atlus' parent company, Index, and spun off the company.
They're stationed in Japan, though a sub-company known as Atlus USA is found in America, where they do most of the English localization for both Japanese Atlus titles and others that are just published by them. After SEGA bought Atlus, Atlus USA absorbed Sega America and the teams localize both companies games together with some getting different branding
