Established in Osaka, Japan in 1969 by Kagemasa Kozuki, KONAMI is one of the video game industry's biggest success stories.

By 1984, KONAMI had opened successful offices in the US, UK and a Key German subsidiary and extended into home formats. It enjoyed huge success on the Nintendo NES format, extending its market share with a wave of well-received titles. KONAMI's successful initial public offering on the Tokyo stock Exchange crowned the 1988 business year. As the business grows, KONAMI also listed to London, Singapore, and New York Stock Exchange. KONAMI now has world wide operation throughout Europe, Asia, North America, and widened its business line to Health & Fitness, and Gaming.
