By promoting the “Overseas Game Development Support Model,” KLab aims to generate revenue opportunities. Using this model, licenses are obtained for games from the Japanese IP holders who are aiming to generate overseas revenue by developing games jointly with overseas developers.
KLab strives to expand its business opportunities through the implementation of strategies for Universal IPs and Global Growth, as part of the 3 Pillars business policy, by leveraging its current knowledge of relationships with IP holders and overseas marketing.
Will other companies follow the steps of KLab to gain more exposure overseas, mainly through Chinese communities since the Chinese community do have quite a large following when it comes Japanese-like inspiration shown through different medias, notably through their animation and games.
