June 27, 2016

Ninja Division Publishing™, LLC and Seven Seas Entertainment™, LLC are proud to announce the formation of a new joint venture game company, Shinobi 7. Combining Ninja Division’s expertise in superior quality game design with Seven Seas’ know-how in license acquisition and curation, Shinobi 7 will focus on producing tabletop games that are based on hit anime, manga, and pop culture brands.
“I’m absolutely thrilled about our partnership,” says Seven Seas Publisher Jason DeAngelis, who will act as Shinobi 7’s CEO. “Ninja Division is a groundbreaking company that has created a new category of chibi-style games. They are experts at what they do, and have earned the respect of the gaming community. Combined with Seven Seas’ licensing capabilities, Shinobi 7 is well-positioned to acquire and curate licenses and make high quality games.”

Shinobi 7’s new games will join Ninja Division’s lineup of breakout brands such as Super Dungeon: Explore, currently produced in four languages with sales of over 100,000 core games and more than half a million expansions. Ninja Division Publishing will oversee marketing, promotions, sales, warehousing, and fulfillment for all Shinobi 7 products.

“I’m very excited about the potential this joint venture creates for both companies” says Ninja Division Partner Kai Nesbit, who will act as Shinobi 7’s President. “As the leading independent manga publisher in North America, Seven Seas has a tremendous amount of experience and expertise in licensing content from Japan. Together, our joint venture will bring a fresh perspective to the game market.”

This fall, Shinobi 7 will launch its first title, Space Dandy Galactic Deck-Building Game. As seen on Cartoon Network’s ADULT SWIM™, Space Dandy is a hit anime series created by legendary director, Shinichiro Watanabe, best known for his work on the anime, Cowboy Bebop.
