When the company Data East went bankrupt, Paon became composed of former Data East staff and bought the rights to some of their games, including Karnov,[1] Chelnov (sometimes known as Atomic Runner outside Japan),[2] the Kuuga trilogy,[3] and the Glory of Heracles series. They have released some of them on the Wii's Virtual Console. They have recently participated in the development of Super Smash Bros. Brawl. So far, Paon has developed games for the Wii, Game Boy Advance, DS and PS2. In March 2015, PAON Inc. merged with DP Inc. to form PAON DP Inc.[4]
