Game Freak, Inc. (株式会社ゲームフリーク Kabushiki-gaisha Gēmu Furīku ) is a Japanese video game developer that currently creates games exclusively for Nintendo. It is most popular for developing the Pokémon series of role-playing video games.
Game Freak was originally a self-published gaming magazine created by Satoshi Tajiri and Ken Sugimori in the 1980s. Tajiri wrote and edited the text and Sugimori illustrated. On April 26, 1989, Tajiri and Sugimori started a video game development company with the same name. One of Game Freak's first games was Famicom action/puzzle game Quinty, which was released in North America as Mendel Palace. Its most popular series, Pokémon (ポケモン Pokemon )—the romanized contraction of the Japanese brand Pocket Monsters (ポケットモンスター Poketto Monsutā )—is published by Nintendo in Japan, North America and Europe.
