With our offices in Fukuoka, Tokyo (Japan) and Montreal (Canada), we have developed over 30 different game titles, been involved with cinematic animations, and in recent years we have also been involved in producing manga. In this way we have been working on different ventures within the entertainment industry, and we want to show our appreciation to clients, fans, and users alike, all over the world, who have supported us over the years.

To close off our 25th anniversary with a bang, we have released the CC2 25th Anniversary Visual as well as a New Music Video from LieN.

【Message from CyberConnect2 CEO Hiroshi Matsuyama】

Our 25th anniversary came at a time of global hardship and restraint. It was an anniversary devoid of the ability for staff to hold celebrations together. However, we spent the year with the mindset that we should do what can be done, and not focus on what we cannot control. We received a torrent of celebratory messages and comments in celebration of this big milestone, our 25th anniversary, and we want to introduce these in the music video of our new celebratory song. All of us at CyberConnect2 have felt the love these past 25 years, and we will be working hard to bring you new content as we continue this journey. We thank everyone from the heart, and hope you look forward to what is to come.
