Enix was a Japanese video game publishing company founded in September 1975 by Yasuhiro Fukushima. Initially a tabloid publisher named Eidansha Boshu Service Center, it was renamed to Enix in 1982, and shortly thereafter ventured into video game publishing for Japanese home computers such as the PC-8800 Series, the X1 series, and the FM-7. Enix initially found games to publish by holding contests for programming hobbyists and publishing the winners, with the first titles appearing in February 1983. Enix continued to hold contests and publish the winners through 1993.[1] When Enix moved into traditional publishing for video game consoles in 1985, it began with ports of two of the more successful games, Door Door and The Portopia Serial Murder Case. From that point onward, Enix served as both a publisher for video games developed independently by other companies as well as publishing titles in franchises owned by Enix and created by licensed developers. Enix's flagship franchise was the Dragon Quest series of console games, developed by Chunsoft, with every main game in the series selling over 1 million copies. During its existence, the company developed or published dozens of titles in various video game franchises on numerous gaming systems. On April 1, 2003, Enix merged with video game developer and publisher Square to form Square Enix.[2] This list includes retail games published by Enix during its existence after its transition from hobby programming contests to retail publishing in 1985.
