THQ Nordic has official incorporated THQ Nordic Japan KK (株式会社/kabushiki kaisha).
THQ Nordic Japan KK will be responsible for distributing, PR, and marketing for THQ Nordic and HandyGames’ titles to the Japanese market.
“At this point, I would like to quote Persona 3: “Two in Harmony Surpasses One in Perfection”. Our team is prepared, honored and absolutely ready to kickstart THQ Nordic’s operations on the Japanese market”, comments Yuji Kato, Managing Director of THQ Nordic Japan KK. “We are honored that we were given this opportunity and can not wait to bring THQ Nordic content to our Japanese audience.”
“In our opinion, the only real way to truly embrace (pun intended) the Japanese market is to run it with a team of Japanese professionals, which was our approach for the new Japanese subsidiary. A warm, heartfelt welcome to the entire team based in Tokyo, Japan” comments Klemens Kreuzer, Managing Director at THQ Nordic GmbH. “Good things come to those who wait and we took our time to realize it with the best setup possible.”
While the Persona 3 quote is a great way to get the attention of gamers in that region (and the western region if we’re being honest), no new game has been announced at this point. However, the team will consist of a group of people who have together already delivered more than 200 titles in the last 15 years in Japan. This will be the second international distribution outlet, with first being the US-based corporation.
