About ACQUIRE Corp.
ACQUIRE Corp. was established in 1994 as a small company consisting of only three people.
Sony Music Entertainment held a contest searching for an original PlayStation game design, to which Takuma Endo (President of ACQUIRE) sent his Tenchu game design and won. Sony Music then gave him the money to expand his fledgling studio and develop the game. Over several years, ACQUIRE grew from a 3-man indie developer to a full-scale game development studio, now one of the top independent development studios in Japan.
