    Partnering with a RPG-focused developer.

    Arc System Works have entered a capital alliance with AQURIA, the developer of CRYMACHINA, The Caligula Effect, and Sword Art Online: Alicization Lycoris. This partnership will allow Arc System Works to grow its development capabilities in a variety of ways. 

    Founded on January 8, 2002, AQURIA is a Yokohama-based development studio with an extensive background in turn-based RPGs and action RPGs. Nearly 20 years after its founding, the company is entering a strategic partnership that could help the company flourish even further.

    Arc System Works and AQURIA Capital Alliance

    The Arc System Works and AQURIA capital alliance allows Arc System Works to expand its development capabilities for upcoming games while sustaining the viability of its development structure. This alliance was formed as the industry demands higher quality and volume for global releases as development scale expands. Both companies will likely team up to create new games, including RPGs.

    Arc System Works will strive to meet new challenges and produce high-quality works for its growing worldwide audience. Most notably, Arc System Works believes that AQURIA may provide useful development synergies that will help grow the capital in both companies.
