HanaHo Games Inc is a division of Semco/PVG that services the commercial coin-op industry. HanaHo primarily produced the HotRod arcade joystick. They also sold a line of non-coin-operated PC game machines (the machines had a coin door, but it was non-functional) that included 50 game titles from Capcom. The company was started by Tony Hana and Conway Ho. The first product was the game GhostHunter. It was headquartered in Cerritos, California.

In January 2010, the official website was "down for maintenance".


Through the 60s and mid 70s Semco produced store displays for Disney, Circuit City, Sears, Kraco Radio, JD industries, and Complete Warehouse Video showroom displays.

In the 80s the video game era came to a peak and Semco acquired PVG (Pacific Video Games) and started producing arcade cabinets for companies including Gremlin/Sega's Frogger, Star Trek, and Zaxxon, Wedges/Ledges, Lealand's Dragon's Lair and Super Off Road arcade video games cabinets, Indian Gaming Reservation Slot machines, Video Poker machines, Capcom's Street Fighter arcade video game cabinets, and Sega Gameworks Custom Classic Cabinets and Custom Arcade cabinets.

In December 2007, Capcom Games filed a federal lawsuit for copyright and trademark infringement against Hanaho Games and its President Conway Ho. in regards to the use of their properties in the Arcade Legends 2 and Ultimate Arcade 2 arcade cabinets.[1] The case was voluntarily dismissed with prejudice in February 2008. In 2010, Hanaho developed updated ports of Splatterhouse, Splatterhouse 2, and Splatterhouse 3 for the Splatterhouse reboot.[2]
