Gaming Ads: Hot•B USA

Hot•B was a Japanese company founded in 1983, though it originally released games under the name GAMU. The Hot•B name began appearing on games in 1987 and the USA branch opened in 1988. The "B" may or may not be short for bass (the fish) as Hot•B released quite a few fishing games during the 8-bit and 16-bit era. Hot•B's Japan location closed in 1993 while the USA branch actually stayed in business after its parent company shut down. I'm not sure when Hot•B USA closed but its last game appears to be Graffiti Kingdom which was released in 2005 for the PlayStation 2.
