Givro Corporation (株式会社 ギブロ?, Kabushiki-kaisha Giburo) was a Japanese video game development company founded in 1989 in Tokyo, Japan by Takashi Yoneda, who was previously employed by Technos Japan and Enix. The company was originally established under the name Almanic Corporation (株式会社 アルマニック?, Kabushiki-kaisha Arumaniku), which it operated under for a few years before changing its corporate name in 1995.[1] Givro would go on to produce games for home consoles such as the Super NES, Genesis, 32X, Nintendo 64 and Sega Saturn.[2][3] Givro released their final game in late 1997 and quietly dissolved at the end of the following year.[4]
