The company entered the Japanese market with the aim of designing, producing and testing game software, and optimizing it for Japanese client companies. In addition to the support from JETRO, they also utilized “Select Kanagawa NEXT”, an incentive program for attracting companies to Kanagawa, to establish its Japanese subsidiary in October 2020 as the sales base. In the spring of 2021, the company began full-scale operations at this sales base in Yokohama.

Upon establishing the company's Japanese base, JETRO's Invest Japan Business Support Center (IBSC) arranged meetings with the local governments (Kanagawa Prefecture and Yokohama City), lent temporary office space (IBSC Kanagawa), provided market information (subsidies and incentives) and consulting (registration, tax, and labor), and introduced service providers (administrative scriveners, tax accountants, real estate agencies, and banks).
