Three former staff members from NIS America have broken ranks to form a new company called “acttil”; the company’s name is based on six principles: “acceptance + creativity + teamwork + trust + innovation + love.”
Acttil was started by Jack Niida, Nao Miyazawa, and Hiroko Kanazashi, NIS America’s former Producer, Marketing Coordinator and VP of Production respectively. The new company will focus on videogame publishing, marketing and localization, though their inaugural press release also stated that they are open to other options, as well.
“We are optimistic with the current digital content environment. It is quite promising for independent developers and we would love to work closely with them and help achieve their goals“, says Jack Niida.
It will be interesting to see if this new company will work in conjunction with their former colleagues at NIS America or if they will strike out on their own to land new titles right out of the gate.
