The financial news source Nikkei reported on Wednesday that the game developer Gust and its new owner Tecmo KOEI Holdings aim to make social games of Gust's Atelier console role-playing game franchise. Nikkei was covering the announcement earlier in the day of Tecmo KOEI Holdings' acquisition of Gust as a wholly-owned subsidiary. According to Nikkei, the acqusition price was 2.2 billion yen (about US$28 million).
Nippon Ichi Software currently distributes the Atelier games in North America.
