Established: 21 Apr 2000

Wow Entertainment Inc. began in 1992 as Sega's AM1, and became Wow on April 21, 2000. Director Rikiya Nakagawa keeps all the game, API, and network development in check while overseeing a group of 107 hard-working individuals.

The name "Wow Entertainment" was chosen because the company's goal is to consistently surprise people with the games we produce, and judging by our software lineup, we've lived up to our name.

AM1 really hit their stride in 1997, when they released The House of the Dead on the unsuspecting populace. The game's intense gameplay and gruesome themes captivated arcade gamers worldwide. AM1 carried this momentum into 1998, with The House of the Dead, Dynamite Cop 2, and the unique Get Bass (Sega Bass Fishing).

Software Highlights from Credited Titles

WOW Entertainment's first work that SPOnG is aware of is the 2001 title, "Alien Front Online" (Dreamcast).

The company has been involved titles released on the PC, PS2, Xbox, GameCube, GBA and Dreamcast. Of these, "The House of the Dead III" (Xbox) has been a best selling title.

The company's most recent involvement was on the 2005 release "Super Monkey Ball Deluxe" (Xbox).
