Overview edit · view history

KID Corp. was a Japanese game developer and publisher based in the Shinagawa Ward of Tokyo. It was established in May 1988, and was headed by Hisayoshi Ichikawa. The company's initial focus was arcade action games, but in 1996 the company's focus shifted to bish┼Źjo games.

The company filed for bankruptcy in November 2006, and it was announced in February 2007 that CyberFront had acquired the rights to the KID brand and its entire game catalogue. Most of the development staff regrouped at 5pb., which would eventually regain the rights to several of KID's bish┼Źjo game properties. At its height, the company employed around 50 people.

Credited on 111 Games from 1989 to 2011
