Gaming Ads: American Sammy

Sammy was founded in Japan in 1975 while the American Sammy division was opened in California in 1988. Between 1996 and 2002 the U.S. branch underwent a couple name changes and moves between Illinois and California. American Sammy no longer exists but the Japanese company does and in 2004 they purchased a majority stake in Sega to create Sega Sammy Holdings that now acts as the parent company of both Sega and Sammy that operate as separate companies.

American Sammy published around 20 games primarily for the Nintendo Entertainment System, Super Nintendo Entertainment System, and Game Boy platforms. Some of its more recognizable games include Rolan's Curse, Michael Andretti's World GP, and the home port of the arcade game Twin Cobra.
