Special Site for Arc System Works' 35th Anniversary Now Abailable!
On May 12, 2023, Arc System Works celebrated its 35th anniversary, and published a special website to commemorate the 35th anniversary!
At the time of publishing, the site includes a message from CEO Minoru Kidooka, a section where you can look back on the history of Arc System Works' 35th anniversary, and a 35th anniversary questionnaire, etc. The 35th anniversary history is very interesting to see which titles were released at which time of the year.
The website will be adding content as it becomes available, so be sure to check the Arc System Works 35th Anniversary Special Site from time to time to make the commemorative 35th Anniversary year even more exciting!
Another event, that tournament, has been announced on the special site again this year, but more on that later.
