Spike Chunsoft Lands Stateside With Newly Formed North America Subsidiary

Spike Chunsoft, Inc. to Serve as Base of Operations for Company’s
Global Publishing and Localization Strategy — Details to be Disclosed at
GDC 2018

TOKYO & LONG BEACH, Calif.–#Danganronpa–Japan-based video game developer and publisher, Spike Chunsoft Co., Ltd,
proudly announces the establishment of its wholly owned North American
subsidiary, Spike Chunsoft, Inc., which will serve as a base of
operations for its global publishing and localization strategy. Spike
Chunsoft, Inc. will serve as global publisher for titles developed by
its parent company led by Chairman Koichi Nakamura and President, CEO
Mitsutoshi Sakurai, in addition to projects developed by MAGES. Inc., a
subsidiary of the Dwango Corporation, under a newly formed strategic
partnership.

 

With the globalization of entertainment, the world has come to embrace
Japanese content with fans of the various alcoves the culture brings
creating their own diverse community. Japan-developed video games have
risen above “niche” status and their popularity continue to expand
across all game genres. Spike Chunsoft has grown with its community and
has launched Spike Chunsoft, Inc. with the mission to localize and
publish content that merits the dedication and expectations of its
audience.

Mitsutoshi Sakurai, President & CEO for Spike Chunsoft Co., Ltd. and
Spike Chunsoft, Inc. said:

Ever since our merger in 2012, we at Spike Chunsoft have dedicated
ourselves to creating fun and unique titles. Our world today is more
connected than ever — we can play games with people across the globe and
exchange information in multiple languages instantaneously.

But even as information is more easily shared, the world still holds
a wealth of undiscovered entertainment. As Spike Chunsoft, it is our
goal to cultivate this potential into something new and memorable that
transcends time, genre, and nationality.

Until now, our titles were produced in Japan and distributed
worldwide by our business partners. But given how the instantaneous
speed of information has become the norm, we believe that communicating
with our overseas audience directly is a new avenue for us to create joy.

Spike Chunsoft, Inc. connects us with our fans and their passion to
producing more of the fun and unique titles the global community has
come to expect from us.

We can’t wait to say “Hello, world!”

Spike Chunsoft, Inc. will reveal more at the Game Developers Conference
(GDC) in March 2018. The company will have a presence during the show
days for product demos, along with hosting its second annual,
invite-only event one evening to share more details on the company’s
global expansion plans.
