Game Freak

officially stylized as GAME FREAK inc. and GAMEFREAK inc., is a Japanese video game developer. It is best known as a developer of the Pokémon series of role-playing video games.

Description

History

Predating the video game company, Game Freak was a self-published video game magazine created by Satoshi Tajiri andKen Sugimori in the 1980s. Tajiri wrote and edited the text and Sugimori illustrated. Tajiri also used "Game Freak" as his pen name when he wrote as a freelance writer to publications such as Family Computer Magazine and Famicom Tsūshin.

On April 26, 1989, Tajiri and Sugimori started a video game development company with the same name. One of Game Freak's first games is the Nintendo Entertainment System action and puzzle game Quinty, which was released in North America as Mendel Palace. Its most popular series, Pokémon (ポケモン Pokemon)—the romanized contraction of the Japanese brand Pocket Monsters (ポケットモンスター Poketto Monsutā)—is published by Nintendo in Japan, North America and Europe.

In October 2015, Game Freak bought Koa Games, a mobile development company.
