Phoenixx

Phoenixx—a new Tokyo-based company focused on the planning, production, and promotion of games and related goods, as well as the management of artists and game creators—-has announced its establishment.

Formed with a “creators-centric” concept, Phoenixx aims to help Japanese creators expand to the world, and western creators expand to Japan and Asia. Its goal is, “To inspire and nurture the human spirit—one creator, one game, and one neighborhood at a time.”
