The company formed a subsidiary, Treco USA in 1990 to begin producing games for the Sega Genesis system. It was thought that by using a different name, they would avoid any potential problems with producing games for the Super Nintendo System - since Nintendo and Sega were both battling for console dominance in the 16-bit arena during those days.
