Happy New Year everyone!
I’m Tatsuya Minami, President and CEO of PlatinumGames.
This year is going to make a turning point for us.
The titles we began when we started the company will finally be released this year. As was the case last year, it is predicted that this year will also see a recession, and the impact on the games and entertainment industry is expected to be considerable. However, I feel that the high quality, high value titles we are aiming to create are needed at times like these.
So to mark this turning point for the company, we have created a new logo.
We needed a new logo for our continued global expansion, and we also needed something new to show that we are enthusiastic and ready to head out and challenge the world.
The P in the logo, and the star next to it, are inspired by the Pt atomic symbol. Furthermore, the star is meant to signify Polaris, the current North Star, and the brightest star in the Little Dipper. We also chose a distinctive color for the logo, Platinum Silver. These choices have allowed us to express with the logo our shared ideals of high quality and lasting value.
This year, several of our titles will be released.
There are many emotions that come with releasing our first title out into the world, but we have absolutely no doubts about the contents of our titles and the vision that created them. Along with our new logo, we want to keep moving forward guided by our consistent values.
We hope you will join us this year.
