President and CEO of Atlus' North American publishing branch, Shinichi Suzuki, stepped down from his position today. Naoto Hiraoka, head of consumer business at Atlus parent company Index Corporation, replaces him.

"I am so proud to have served at the helm of such a well-loved brand as Atlus," Suzuki said in a statement. "I thank my staff and all of the fans that continue to support the company and its games. Under new leadership, we will continue our proud tradition of excellent games and exceptional localizations. I extend my sincerest thanks to all who helped in some way to make us successful."

Suzuki first took the position back in 2004. He will remain with Index Digital Media, Inc. in an advisory role through September facilitating the transition.
