Savvy Games Group Inviting Nintendo, Capcom, Others to Establish Offices in Middle East

Savvy Games Group

Savvy Games Group, a prominent video games company, is extending an invitation to big brand such as Nintendo, Capcom, and others to establish offices in the Middle East as the MENA region continues to see a marked and impressive growth.

Savvy Games Group, which is backed by Saudi Arabia’s Public Investment Fund (PIF), is aiming to solidify their relationship with Japanese game giants Nintendo and Capcom as well as explore investment opportunities, including game localization, within the Middle East market.

“One of the main areas is how do we collaborate on localization products, and help Japanese intellectual properties grow in a region that right now is underserved because very little is localized” Savvy Game’s vice chair Prince Faisal bin Bandar bin Sultan Al Saud, according to Pocket Gamer.

“Game development is our long-term goal,” he added. “We want to build a global hub for gaming and esports.”

The company acquired Scopely, and the launch of the popular ‘Monopoly GO’ game has furthered Savvy Games’ impressive footprint in the industry while also establishing the game company as a major player in the space.

While it certainly seems like lofty aspirations, it does appear that Savvy Games Group is seeking to mold itself as the Nintendo and/or Capcom of the MENA region, which comes at a very opportune time to make such a monumental mark.
