This company is the editor and supervisor of franchises such as One Piece, Naruto or Dragon Ball, so it has a lot of influence in the Japanese animation universe. However, it is aware of the potential of video games, and that is why it has now announced a new publishing division focused on their distribution.

A total of 4,000 developers have registered for this program, and the publishing division will support the distribution of more than 10 gamesmany of them still unannounced.
At the moment, we know the name of some of these mysterious games: Oni (developed by Kenei Design studio), ukiyo (Seaknot Studios), The Tower of Children (Alpha Touch) and Captain Velvet Meteor: The Jump+ Dimensions (Momo-pi Studio).
