Nihon Falcom Corp.

Overview

Nihon Falcom (日本ファルコム) is a Japanese game developer based in Tachikawa, Tokyo. The company was founded in March 1981 by Masayuki Katō, who remained its chairman during subsequent years. Falcom initially focused on producing games for Japanese home computers (later PC Windows), though many of their most popular titles were ported to various console systems as well. In 2001 Falcom was incorporated.

Falcom was one of the pioneers of the action RPG genre, to which most of their best-known games belong. With their Dragon Slayer, Xanadu, and Ys series of action RPGs the company has established itself as one of the most influential developers in the genre. One of the key features in many of their games (particularly early titles) was "bumping" combat, which made action-based battles possible without the use of a separate "action" key or button.

They were also the fist company to apply vocals to game music, the first to have their own band consisting of professional musicians (the Falcom Sound Team JDK), and the first to produce separately available game music CDs.
