Does this mean that future Atlus games (such as the Persona series) will be published by Sega, or simply distributed (in the same way that Valve games were distributed by EA at the retail level)? What does this mean for the Atlus brand name, or global branches like Atlus USA? Will this impact, say, publishing in Europe (where Atlus games have typically been published by third parties like Deep Silver)?

Hey Josh, we updated the story. This appears to be a domestic distribution deal that relates only to Japan.
