Established in December 1979 as Jordan Information Service Co., Ltd. (株式会社ジョルダン情報サービス) [1] by president and CEO Toshikazu Sato (佐藤俊和) [2], Jorudan Co., Ltd. (ジョルダン株式会社) (as it was rechristened in December 1989) [3] is a company involved with software development, digital content for the Web and mobile phones, the travel industry, and more. [4]

In February 1999, Jorudan spun off its game business into a subsidiary called Nekogumi Co., Ltd. (株式会社ねこぐみ), which shut down in March 2001 [5] and was apparently merged back into Jorudan. [6] After a brief hiatus, Jorudan announced its return to the console game business in 2007 [7], but quickly retreated after two years.
