Overview edit · view history

Sony Computer Entertainment Japan (SCEJ/SCE Japan Studio) was the Japanese production and development arm of the parent company Sony Computer Entertainment Incorporated (SCEI). Considered by the parent company as its "founding" studio, it was established in November 1993. The studio employed over 400 people and was located in Tokyo.

Most of its actions fell under the domain of the parent company, but many games developed in Japan by Sony Computer Entertainment and its affiliated developers carried credits for SCEJ.

In 2009 it was part of the SCE Worldwide Studios group.

In the last week of February 2021 Sony confirmed that Japan Studio would be closed and the remainder would be absorbed into ASOBI Team, which was initially started as a division of the studio.

Credited on 113 Games from 1983 to 2020
