CYBIRD was founded 18 years ago at the dawn of the Japanese mobile Internet, and under the corporate concept of “Smile with Mobile”, the Company has been providing users with a steadily expanding range of mobile contents ever since. In the game business, for example, we have popularized a slew of innovative titles beginning with the IKEMEN Series of original love simulation games featuring a variety of historical characters and the BFB Series of simulation soccer games. In the content business too, we are deploying well loved titles in the entertainment field such as Kazuko Hosoki’s Rokusei Senjutsu (Divination by Six Planets), Ryuji Kagami’s Psychological Astrology, the Detective Conan Series, etc., and we are also developing our business in the lifestyle and mobile marketing fields with titles such as SURFING GUIDE MAP by Nami-Aru?, which is the go-to app for surfers in Japan.
At the root of all of our businesses are our mission “to create happy moments” and our vision of “continuing to be a passionate company”. Moreover, rooted in this basic corporate stance, we are steadily providing our customers and partners with a set of values that we call “Challenge”, “Essence” and “Love”.

However, the business environment surrounding CYBIRD has changed a great deal during the course of the past 18 years. Now that “Mobile” has become “a very ordinary thing” that most people use widely in their everyday lives and the mobile content market has reached a state of maturity, CYBIRD itself has arrived at a major turning point, although of course, our mission and our vision will not change as a consequence. In addition, we intend to maintain our stance of providing people with value in the shape of “Challenge”, “Essence” and “Love” just as we have up to now. Nevertheless, as we head into this new era, the time has come to redefine these values once again.

So, what do we mean by “Challenge”? Much more than merely the capacity for tackling new things, our challenge is also the determination to make success certain as well as to produce innovation. What do we mean by “Essence”? The essence of our business is to accurately grasp the needs of the era and to provide products and services that are supported by our customers.Lastly, what do we mean by “Love”? We demonstrate our love by providing services as professionals, and by respecting our colleagues and partners who create value.
In this way, we will endeavor to progress to the next phase while reaffirming the value of our products.

At CYBIRD, one of our main strengths is certainly the fact that we possess a wide variety of original contents that have obtained the broad support of our customers. In addition, we are blessed with many excellent partners. However, in order to create even greater value in future, we cannot afford to satisfy ourselves by merely maintaining and expanding our current advantages. We also need to keep providing innovative solutions in response to the needs of people who demand original media by making the best possible use of our rich and diverse store of content to create such media. And just as the leading players in the game business have now moved from packages to the Internet, the content business must also continue to change.
CYBIRD will keep changing in line with the era while continuing to treasure the many assets we have been cultivating up to the present. Please look forward to even more exciting things from CYBIRD in future.
