Nippon Ichi Software Launches 30th Anniversary Website; 3 Unannounced Titles Teased

Developer Nippon Ichi Software has launched its 30th-anniversary website, comprising a message from President Tetsuhisa Seko, a timeline of the company’s countless releases, and a page teasing anniversary titles.

Currently, Shin Hayarigami 1・2・3 is the sole anniversary title on the website, being a compilation of remastered horror visual novels by the developer. However, there are three blank tabs, which are likely games that have not yet been announced. Considering the company’s extensive catalog, It’s possible that these will be more collections.

You can view the President’s translated message below via our team’s Ryuji:

Thank you very much for visiting our 30th-anniversary website.

Thanks to everyone; we celebrated our 30th anniversary on July 12, 2023. We would like to take this opportunity to express our sincere gratitude to all of you for your support and patronage. To celebrate our 30th anniversary, we will be producing commemorative gifts and holding small events for a year starting this July. The theme is “未来へ (Toward the future).”

Our company was established in 1993, and our journey as a game developer began with the release of our own product, Jigsaw World, in 1995. Since then, we have continued our business amidst changes in the environment, transitioned through various gaming and technological innovations, and have made sure to keep up with those changes. However, as we look ahead to the next 50 or 100 years, we believe that one thing will never change.

And that is: Our desire. To continue to create good products and services for our customers. We have been dedicated to developing good products and services to provide enjoyment to the world and please our players, business partners, and of course, everyone. Though we have received both compliments and hate alike, we will never change our mindset, and we will continue to work together toward the future so that we can become a company that can further satisfy everyone.

I hope you’ve enjoyed this past year.

President and Representative Director Tetsuhisa Seko
