May 9, 2019 – Shinobi 7 LLC, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Seven Seas Entertainment, is excited to announce a rebranding of the company name to reflect its evolution and growth. The new company name will be “S7 Games.” While the company will continue to publish tabletop games based on licensed brands, its focus will expand beyond specializing in Japanese brands to encompass a wider array of pop culture properties and genres, as well as original IP.
To date, Shinobi 7 has released card games based on such hit anime properties as Tokyo Ghoul, and My Hero Academia, as well as Sonic the Hedgehog: Battle Racers, a board game that includes pre-painted miniatures, coming this fall. Under its new banner as S7 Games, the company will release a Conan the Barbarian board game which will come to Kickstarter in 2019 (date soon to be announced) with a broader release to retail channels planned for 2020.
“The relaunch of Shinobi 7 as S7 Games marks a transition point for us,” says publisher and CEO Jason DeAngelis. “As S7 Games, we intend to broaden the scope and appeal of our products. My Hero Academia: The Card Game has been a great success for us, and now it’s time to level up even further.”
Derek Osborne, director of S7 Games adds: “As a subsidiary of Seven Seas Entertainment, not only do we have the backing of a well-known, reputable publisher with a fifteen-year history of producing quality, award-winning products, we also have a partner with a proven record of working with some of the best known and most beloved licenses in pop culture. Their passion and experience working with top companies the world over will allow us unique opportunities to license and create new products in some of the richest worlds and universes, while creating new and unique properties of our own.”
The rebranding includes a redesign of the company’s name, logo, graphics and communications. S7 Games’ new logo incorporates a nautical theme that ties into the Seven Seas family of brands. The relaunch of S7 Games’ website is planned for later this year.
