Tokyo-based publisher Idea Factory, which owns Hyperdimension Neptunia developer Compile Heart, has opened Idea Factory International in California.
Idea Factory has been releasing its games—such as the Hyperdimension Neptunia, Record of Agarest War, and Hakuoki series—in western territories through third-party publishers. With the volume of content the company wishes to make available globally increasing—including “video games, animation, and social apps”—Idea Factory International intends to focus on “providing general and overall information regarding Idea Factory properties to North American and European fans.”
Former NIS America president Harusato Akenaga will lead the new company as CEO. Visit the company’s still to be opened website here.
