Kaga Electronics, behind every hit
Our involvement with clients in the entertainment industry dates back to the days of the space invader games. In the latter half of the 1970s, when the game first sparked an international cult phenomenon, we launched sales of electronic products, including monitors, for video games aiming to take advantage of this trend. When Nintendo Co., Ltd. released its first Nintendo Entertainment System, the 8-bit home video game console known in Japan as Famicom (FC), we manufactured the video game cassettes which were used by third-party video game developers. This provided us with the opportunity to accumulate technology and software knowhow related to video games and expand our operations into the genre of amusement equipment (arcade games). It was through this process that we built the foundation for our entertainment business.
