Nacon revealed the acquisition of Midgar Studio, developer of jRPG Edge of Eternity. The studio gained recognition for its games that feature high-quality technology and graphics to offer an immersive playing experience.
Of particular note is open-world jRPG Edge of Eternity, released in June 2021 to warm welcome from players, having been fondly nicknamed “French Final Fantasy”.
The Video Games division of NACON now includes 15 development locations (10 in France, 1 in Belgium, 1 in Italy, 2 in Canada and 1 in Australia), comprising nearly 600 developers, supported by a Publishing team of 70 people.
“Being creative and technically excellent at the same time is a challenge that is characteristic of Midgar Studio and our trademark. We are very happy to be joining NACON, who listen and understand what we are trying to achieve. With their support, we have the chance to fulfil our ambitions while retaining a lot of freedom,” said Jeremy Zeler-Maury.
“It’s always exciting for NACON to welcome a new team to our family, and to do it without restricting the creativity and work practices that are behind their success. Midgar Studio makes high-quality games in a segment that we have not yet specialised in. By combining the studio’s expertise with our own on the publishing side, we will soon be able to offer our players new, high-quality, French-made gaming experiences,” said Alain Falc, President and CEO of NACON.
