Kadokawa Games Would Like to Look Into Releasing its Games on Nintendo Switch, Steam and More

October 28, 2016

Kadokawa Games has been a fairly PlayStation-centric developer and publisher in the past few years, publishing most of its games on Sony’s console. Yet, they might look into expanding to other platforms, as President Yoshimi Yasuda told DualShockers during an interview.

“We would like to deliver our games to as many peoples as possible, in the best route possible. Therefore, in the future we would like to look into the Nintendo Switch or Steam and any other hardware that has an install base.”

In recent years, Kadokawa has also been very proactive in finding a way to deliver its games to western fans, going as far as announcing the worldwide releases of God Wars and Root Letter from the very beginning, also providing trailers subtitled in English by default, which is very unique among Japanese publishers.

We asked Yasuda-san whether this is a policy that will continue down the line, and the answer was definitely encouraging:


“Our fundamental strategy is to release any games that Kadokawa Games develops for Western gamers.”

It’ll certainly be interesting to see what Kadokawa Games has in store for the future, but in the meanwhile, you’ll be able to read the full interview, focused on Yasuda-san’s own brainchild God Wars: Future Past, tomorrow.

Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality) and MMORPGs are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
