Shinra Technologies partners with NTT and Techorus and announces launch date of Japanese technical beta

25 Jan 2015 New York - Shinra Technologies Inc., Nippon Telegraph and Telephone East Corporation (NTT) and Techorus Corporation have started the supercomputer Cloud gaming technical beta test partnership in Japan for three months, starting on February 17th, 2015. Shinra positions this technical beta test as the first step toward the launch of its supercomputer Cloud gaming platform.

Shinra's technology is optimal when paired with a high-quality infrastructure, and ensuring the stability of the three-month technical beta in Japan is NTT East's stable, high-speed optical fiber network and distribution system. Likewise, finding a partner well-versed in GPU rendering and optimization is integral in enabling the high-spec visual fidelity of Shinra's platform, and Techorus' significant experience in this field makes them an excellent match.

The Japanese technical beta test includes flagship titles selected from different eras of Square Enix history, including Final Fantasy VII, Tomb Raider (current-gen), and Hitman: Absolution, as well as the gorgeous Agni's Philosophy graphics demo. Additionally, the beta test lets players get their hands on Space Sweeper, a new indie game showcasing the Shinra platform's versatility in the form of an overhead, sprite-based, twin-stick MMO shooter that offers vast expanses of territory to conquer while blending mechanical simplicity with tactical depth.

Shinra Technologies Inc. President, Yoichi Wada, noting the importance of proper infrastructure, stated: "In order to create new game experiences through revolutionary technologies, we need to fundamentally change everything about content, infrastructure and business models."

Following the conclusion of its beta test in Japan, Shinra is planning a similar beta test in the United States in the summer of 2015.
