Akinai GamesYukes Company of America has launched a new division called Akinai Games that will focus on downloadable games. Yukes emphasized that Akinai will develop downloadable games for the Wii, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, while plans for the PC and mobile phones are not yet set.
According to the company, "'Akinai,' in Japanese, is loosely translated to 'keep entertained,' symbolic of the company's effort to offer a variety of high quality and fun downloadable games. The company logo was inspired by the 'Maneki Neko' or 'Lucky Cat,' a traditional Japanese cat sculpture which is believed to bring good luck to its owners and is typically displayed at a storefront's entrance. The arrows within the Akinai Games logo represent the uploading of video game entertainment for consumers to download and enjoy."
