Personnel Database

The Kyoto Report database is a collection of thoroughly researched and archived information from various sources including websites, magazines, copyright postings, patent publications, and press media. Our research method specializes in obtaining obscure information from untranslated Japanese language sources - filtered though a rich historical interpretive lens of the company and the video game industry. A staple affixed to our database, is that all information is constantly fact checked and updated through multiple sources. This is the largest and most accurate credit and personnel information repository on the internet. Most of which will be transcribed and copied without permission. Please credit our website if you plan on borrowing any material. As with all of our sections and features, stay tuned for regular updates. Please enjoy the plethora of content and be encouraged to submit any additional credits to our public forums.
