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.

Trivia:

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.
