Tecmo, initially a supplier of cleaning equipment and now best known for Ninja Gaiden and Dead or Alive, was founded on this day in 1967!

Acclaim Entertainment, Inc.


According to Wikipedia, Acclaim's founders used the same naming convention that their former employers at Activision had used when jumping ship from Atari (as with their compatriots who started Accolade): choosing a name occurring slightly earlier when sorted alphabetically. This one-upmanship was trumped by the fellows at Absolute Entertainment.
