Press Release2021/03/25

GameWith, Inc. (Headquarters: Minato-ku, Tokyo; Representative and President: Takuya Imaizumi; Securities code: 6552) announced today that it has launched a new division for Apex Legends, a battle royale game published/distributed by Electronic Arts that enjoys worldwide popularity, as part of its e-Sports business. With this, three new players have joined the GameWith team.

 

In 2018, GameWith announced its professional gaming team “GameWith,” which is competing in the Super Smash Bros. and FORTNITE divisions.

Apex Legends, the game to be added to the roster, is a battle royale game originally released in February 2019.

According to a market survey by Newzoo, the monthly active user count of Apex Legends on PS4 and Xbox One combined in Japan hit 1.46 million in July 2020*, a testimony to it being one of the most popular game titles now.

The three new players boast brilliant track records at competitions, but their selection was not based on this alone, as their characters match GameWith extremely well. Going forward, under our management, they will enhance team coordination and hone their skills. To provide the players with opportunities to remain active while not competing, we will support them in the realm of streaming, one of our fortes.
