Gaming Ads: Sunsoft

Sunsoft itself is actually a brand of Sun Corporation, a Japanese company originally founded in 1971 as Sun Electronics Corporation. Before gaming it made a variety of products, including automatic ticket vending machines, coffee makers, and personal computers. It released its first arcade games in 1978 and began making games for the Nintendo Entertainment System five years later with the Sunsoft name first appearing on game boxes in 1985. The U.S. subsidiary, Sun Corporation of America, also published console games under the Sunsoft name starting in 1987. Sunsoft had financial difficulties in 1995 which led to laying off most of its staff but the U.S. branch continued to publish games after that for a little while. However, all but the headquarters did close at some point in the late '90s I believe. Sun Corporation is still in business today publishing digital games for consoles and iOS/Android devices.
