Hirameki International Group Inc. was an American company founded in March 2000 which specialized in translating visual novels from Japan and releasing them to the American market. It is named after the Japanese word for the noun "flash" or "insight". On January 2, 2008, the company elected to bow out of games production.[1]

In November 2010,[citation needed] Hirameki returned as a video game accessories reseller for their home company, Cyber Gadget, of Japan. As of March 2011, they are the only authorized seller of Cyber Gadget video game accessories in the United States.[2]
