Interchannel, Inc. (株式会社インターチャネル Kabushiki-gaisha Intāchaneru) was a Japanese game developer and publisher. Previously known as NEC Interchannel and before that NEC Avenue, it was originally a subsidiary of NEC before 70 percent of the company was sold to Index Corporation for approximately 3 billion yen ($28 million) in 2004. Interchannel's games tended to be Japanese only, however the company established Gamebridge Ltd., a UK-based joint venture with Bergsala, that published its games in Europe. Only ten games were ever published.
In November 2007, GungHo Online Entertainment acquired the video game assets of Interchannel from Index Corporation, however, the Interchannel logo and copyright was maintained by Index Corporation. On September 5, 2013, once Index Corporation's assets were absorbed into Sega Dream Corporation, the Interchannel brand was dissolved.
