THQ Nordic Launches a Japanese Subsidiary

THQ Nordic has announced they’ve launched a new branch in Japan.

The new subsidiary is called simply THQ Nordic Japan, and will handle distribution, public relations, and marketing for all THQ Nordic and HandyGames releases for the Japanese market.

The new branch is led by managing director Yuji Kato, and is THQ Nordic’s second international distribution outlet, aside from their 2012-launched United States branch.

“In our opinion, the only real way to truly embrace (pun intended) the Japanese market is to run it with a team of Japanese professionals, which was our approach for the new Japanese subsidiary,” THQ Nordic managing director Klemens Kreuzer said in a press release. “A warm, heartfelt welcome to the entire team based in Tokyo, Japan. Good things come to those who wait and we took our time to realize it with the best setup possible.”

THQ Nordic Japan managing director Yuji Kato added, “At this point, I would like to quote Persona 3: ‘Two in Harmony Surpasses One in Perfection.’ Our team is prepared, honored and absolutely ready to kickstart THQ Nordic’s operations on the Japanese market. We are honored that we were given this opportunity and can not wait to bring THQ Nordic content to our Japanese audience.”

Here’s the key staff, of which THQ notes have shipped over 200 titles in 15 years to the Japanese market:

  • Yuji Kato – Managing Director
