Hi there! It’s warmer and warmer day by day, but has summer already come? I feel hot rather than warm because I’m excited that I will be able to inform you of our new application for iPhone/iPod touch! Before the application, today, I would like to introduce our new brand name for the applications.


IZUMOGASIN is a brand name of the game applications for iPhone/iPod touch created by AQ Interactive and Ubiquitous Entertainment Inc. Under this name, new and innovative games which will be created utilizing mixture of Japanese conventional game-create experience and ZeptoTool’s technology, will be released. The 1st game is released in this April, this month! 7 games are going to be released within this year.

For inquiries or further information about our games, please e-mail to inquiry@izumogasin.com

We can provide free copies of the application for webmasters or the mass media. Please let us know if you are interested in. (We are sorry but the number of free copies is limited. Providing it will be stopped after a certain number of inquiries. Thank you for your understanding!)

I suppose that readers are not familiar with AQ Interactive, so I would like to introduce a brief profile of the company.

AQ Interactive was founded by Mr Hayao Nakayama who has also founded SEGA. It is a rising game publisher where a number of creators who have worked at SEGA or SQUARE work. Mr Hironobu Sakaguchi, who is famous for Final Fantasy series, is also a member of it.

Mr Tomoyuki Takechi, ex-chairman of SQUARE and one of founders of UEI, is the president and CEO of AQI, which is a public company capitalized at 310 million yen.

I will inform the application itself soon, so please be patient until then! Of course, please remember to ask the free copies to the inquiry@izumogasin.com if you are interested in.

Hope summer will come to you as well.

See you soon.
