It was revealed today that Nippon Ichi Software and Idea Factory have formed a new company which they are currently calling Preapp. The company will be based in Yokohama and was actually created back in July with only five employees.
The companies chose today to reveal the company because it began operating today with former NIS America president Haru Akenaga leading the company. The purpose of Preapp is to focus on overseas business consulting and licensing. Akenaga himself actually owns 75% of Preapp while Idea Factory and Nippon Ichi only hold 10% of the company which means it was likely Akenaga’s idea originally.
