NetEase Games has launched yet another studio in the past week, this time revealing PinCool Inc., which will focus on console titles.

NetEase Games has revealed another studio this week as they have launched Pincool Inc., which will focus specifically on console games. This particular company will be based in Tokyo, Japan, and will be staffed with a bevy of industry experts with "extensive experience in different facets of the interactive entertainment field, including video games, movie creatives, live events, and IP licensing." While the news of the launch of the new company is cool, it did not come with any plans at this time. Which means whatever they are working on is being kept so top secret, they didn't even want to mention at the start of it all that they were working on anything. We got more info on who will be running the place below.
