Gematsu began as a Blogger-hosted PlayStation blog called onAXIS in July 2007. Ten months and 3,860 posts later, the website moved to a self-hosted WordPress blog called ScrawlFX.

Over time, the website grew to cover every platform, with a sweet spot for Japanese video games. In May 2011, ScrawlFX became Gematsu, which today exists to provide readers with the latest games industry news, screenshots, and videos. We hope you love it.
