    —An expansion of the Shueisha Creators CAMP support business.

    Shueisha Creators CAMP, established as a new venture by Shueisha, will be further strengthened through management support from Shueisha Games.

    Shueisha Game Creators CAMP began with the idea that the know-how cultivated by Shueisha in the manga business over many years to discover and support the talents of new creators, can also be utilized to support talented game creators both solo and with few staff.

    In addition to game creators, Shueisha Game Creators CAMP also supports collaborations between creators and creators-in-the-making in various genres related to game development, including manga artists, novelists, visual artists, illustrators, and sound creators, helping bring new games full of ingenuity to the world.
