    Banzai, huh. Will be interesting to see if it will just stay a management and marketing arm or if they intend to actually start developing games from there at some point. Not the cheapest place to develop games from but Japan has had a relatively unknown AA game development scene for a while, although it was one that was a lot more console than PC focused and a bit less indie than what you saw in Europe. With how blind and dumb some Japanese companies have been they might just be able to buy out some companies and IPs should one fuck up badly enough. Or maybe we'll just get bad end and it will just start publishing mobile gacha games since the Japanese game industry is not that big and very occupied.
