REBRANDING PROCESS

We renovated our brand to level up your experience.

 

BRAND OVERVIEW

SEGA Corporation is a Japanese multinational video game developer and publisher head-quartered in Shinagawa, Tokyo. Founded by Martin Bromley and Richard Stewart as Nihon Goraku Bussan in 1960, the company acquired its predecessor, Service Games of Japan. Five years later, the company was known as SEGA Enterprises, Ltd., after acquiring Rosen Enterprises, an importer of coin-operated games and devices.

In 2002, SEGA stopped manufacturing consoles to become a third-party developer and was acquired by Sammy Corporation. SEGA has been recognized for its time supporting its own video game consoles, its creativity, and also its innovations. In more recent years, it has been criticized for its business decisions and the quality of its creative output.
