Arc System Works Celebrates 30th Anniversary With A Music Video Featuring All Company Staff



Arc System Works is celebrating its 30th anniversary this year and they put together a special “30th Anniversary Theme Song” music video featuring all the staff from the company.


Arc System Works has somehow managed to stay in the industry and celebrate its 30th anniversary this year. So, we would like to thank all the fans who have supported us throughout the years, as well as various business partners and freelancers who helped us along the way with developing and publishing games.

We thank all of you from the bottom of our hearts.

In order to commemorate the 30th anniversary, we created something that will find a home in the hall of fame and peoples’ hearts. While our main business is in developing games, we hope this video may put a smile on some faces.

It’s time for all that hard work to be paid off!

The song’s also available for download on our official Homepage!
