Overview edit · view history

Psikyo was a Japanese game development studio, most likely established in 1993. Its first arcade game, Sengoku Ace, was released in March 1993. The company is known for a number of shooters and Mahjongg titles. Psikyo was acquired by X-Nauts in mid-2002. In 2003 it was reported X-Nauts closed the Psikyo video game business in 2003, but that was later corrected. New releases carried the name X-Naut.Psikyo, but only as a label as the actual development work was outsourced to other teams.
