Amusement Vision, Ltd. (アミューズメントヴィジョン株式会社 Amyūzumento Vijon Kabushikigaisha?) was a Japanese video game developer owned by Sega.

Amusement Vision was formed in 2000 and was then considered to be a second-party developer to Sega. On July 1, 2004, Sega's subsidiaries, Wow Entertainment, Amusement Vision, Hitmaker, Smilebit, Sega Rosso, and United Game Artists reintegrated into Sega following the merge between Sega and Sammy in 2005, and a holding company, (Sega Sammy Holdings), was formed. The subsidiaries ceased to exist and were renamed.

Games developed by Amusement Vision (Ltd.)[edit]


The team behind the original Super Monkey Ball series and F-Zero GX is one of the most prolific at Sega today. They created the Yakuza series and Binary Domain, and the leader Toshihiro Nagoshi is CCO of the company today. The Super Monkey Ball series spawned several installments on different consoles and phones.
