Click here to request a video game article.
Articles require significant coverage in reliable sources that are independent of the subject.
Optional: Please sign your request after creating it as it will help the person notify you if the article is created/the request is declined.

If you think an article about video games should be added to Wikipedia and know that it meets the inclusion criteria above, please list it below with URL links to the reliable sources that prove its notability (e.g., reviews or dedicated coverage from IGN or Polygon, but not forum posts, blogs without a professional staff, or the official website of the subject). Please do not add games or developers that do not yet meet this notability criterion, as they will be deleted; instead help us work on another current article and remember to add the game/developer if they meet the criteria in the future. Once an article is created, please remove the request. Please see Wikipedia:Articles for creation for more information on what articles are acceptable. Thank you.

If you placed a request here that was since removed, it likely did not meet Wikipedia's general notability guideline, and is not a fit topic for an article at this time.

  • MAGES. is a large Japanese media company with interests in video games, music, and other media. It has an extensive article in the Japanese-language Wikipedia here:
    • Potentially, though the article would require a good look at japanese sources. Some English language source mentions though: [1], [2]. Sam Walton (talk) 16:08, 18 November 2014 (UTC)

I checked on this and apparently 5pb. turned into Mages. So this may already have its own page but with the old name? source GamerPro64 21:38, 13 August 2017 (UTC)

@GamerPro64:No, I think 5pb. still has merit as a historical article about a former company. According to the article, MAGES. is comprised of more companies than just 5pb.ZXCVBNM (TALK) 11:01, 14 August 2017 (UTC)
@GamerPro64:Actually upon further research it's more like a currently active subsidiary of MAGES. but certainly not the entire company.ZXCVBNM (TALK) 17:08, 14 August 2017 (UTC)

  • "Sanwa Denshi (video game component manufacturer)" - Was deleted for failing to meet notability guidelines. Regardless of this, appears to have a strong presence in Japanese language world. Title should be as given here to avoid confusion with Sanwa Electronic, bearer of the sanwa-denshi domain name and shares the same kanji lettering.

Coverage in Japanese language sources only helps establish notability for the Japanese Wikipedia. To establish notability for the English Wikipedia, we need coverage in English language sources.--Martin IIIa (talk) 04:57, 2 January 2018 (UTC)
@Martin IIIa: per WP:GNG, non-English sources can be used for establishing notability. Oornery (talk) 18:55, 2 January 2018 (UTC)
Agreed. English sources preferred, not required. Otherwise we would never be a true general encyclopedia of the world. -- ferret (talk) 19:03, 2 January 2018 (UTC)
If we were meant to be a general encyclopedia of the world, we wouldn't have separate Wikipedias for other languages, article titles would be the worldwide common name instead of the common name in English language sources, and video game infoboxes would always contain release dates for non-English speaking countries instead of only when the game originates in that country.--Martin IIIa (talk) 16:52, 4 January 2018 (UTC)
We're a general encyclopedia in English. The other Wikipedias exist to present that same content in other languages. It's not a scope limitation on topic inclusion. See Wikipedia:Systemic bias. -- ferret (talk) 16:55, 4 January 2018 (UTC)
But that would present an obvious redundancy. Japanese speakers, for example, are naturally going to be reading the Japanese Wikipedia. What sense is there in repeating the same research, editing, and maintenance several hundred times over, once for each language, on top of dealing with the translation issues, for a subject that is only notable to people who speak Japanese anyway and thus don't need the article in any other language?--Martin IIIa (talk) 17:30, 4 January 2018 (UTC)
Ferret is right - It makes no difference what language the reference is in, it adds notoriety to the English Wiki. Lee Vilenski(talk) 19:46, 4 January 2018 (UTC)

GameFAQs is not a reliable source. However, the game is reviewed in GamePro 99 (December 1996), Next Generation 24 (December 1996), and Electronic Gaming Monthly 88 (November 1996). Mobygames lists several more reviews that we can try looking up, most of them for the Windows version of the game. There's also a one-page preview in Next Generation 22 (October 1996).--Martin IIIa (talk) 15:33, 2 January 2018 (UTC)

  • Sonic the Hedgehog Megamix - Arguably the most well-known modification created for Sonic the Hedgehog.
