THQ Nordic has opened a Japanese branch to market and distribute their titles in that region. It’s something that the company has been wanting to do for a while, as they already distribute titles in North America and Europe from their main and Deep Silver branches respectively.

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,” said THQ Nordic managing director Klemens Kreuzer 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.

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.
