History

The original companies that spawned Capcom's Japanese branch were I.R.M Corporation founded on May 30, 1979,[1] as well as its subsidiary Japan Capsule Computer Co., Ltd., both of which were devoted to the manufacturing and distribution of electronic game machines.[9] The two companies underwent a name change to Sambi Co., Ltd. in September 1981,[9] while Capcom Co., Ltd. itself was first established on June 11, 1983,[1] for the purpose of taking over the internal sales department.[11]
