It’s such an important market and it’s amazed me that so few professional western media outlets have established inroads into the east. That said, I can’t think of a better outlet to break into it. 4Sign inorRegisterto rate and replyJames Brightman Editor, North America, GamesIndustry.biz5 years ago Thanks Alfonso! GamesIndustry.biz expands with Japan EditionPartnership with Japan’s 4Gamer.net brings industry content to millions of readers across the countryGamesIndustry StaffWednesday 20th April 2016Share this article Recommend Tweet ShareGamesIndustry.biz is pleased to announce today that we’ve extended our reach across the globe yet again. Thanks to a partnership with Aetas-owned 4Gamer.net, we’ve launched GamesIndustry.biz Japan Edition, written entirely in Kanji to complement 4Gamer.net’s already sizable audience of 4.7 million monthly unique users. In addition to content being translated into Japanese from this website, 4Gamer’s team will be writing localized content about the games industry in Japan. Furthermore, GamesIndustry.biz has teamed with Silicon Studio Corp., a company specializing in temporary staffing services to the game industry, to extend its already world-class jobs board into the Japanese marketplace. The GamesIndustry.biz Career section of Japan Edition will provide information on different forms of employment, allow users to search information by skill set, and ultimately deliver a top-notch job-matching service.”With full-time writers in New York, San Francisco, Toronto and the UK, GamesIndustry.biz has been serving the needs of the industry in the West for years. To be fully global, however, expansion into Asia is necessary and I couldn’t be happier that we’re realizing that effort in Japan, home to industry stalwarts like Sony, Nintendo, Capcom and Square Enix,” said James Brightman, Editor in Chief of GamesIndustry.biz.Related JobsSenior Game Designer – UE4 – AAA United Kingdom Amiqus GamesProgrammer – REMOTE – work with industry veterans!

Since such humble beginnings, 4Gamer.net has grown beyond PC games and now covers more reporting areas including online, console and mobile games. Throughout the years we have been covering news and stories about the games industry and writing player-centric articles in hopes of the development of the industry.”We also have hoped to create media exclusively for the industry, and the strong partnership with such a well known publication like GamesIndustry.biz, a sister website of Eurogamer.net, and Silicon Studio Corp. is another step forward in realizing this goal. We are indeed honored to launch GamesIndustry.biz Japan Edition today.”Celebrating employer excellence in the video games industry8th July 2021Submit your company Sign up for The Daily Update and get the best of GamesIndustry.biz in your inbox.
