If like me you’re interested in video game marketing, it’s useful to know which agencies are focused on the industry.
Here’s a list I put together. This post was updated 9 October 2017.
A communications agency that provides corporate and European product launch support to Nintendo.
Supports Nintendo UK’s in-house marketing team on individual projects.
A former holder of the Nintendo UK advertising account.
Leo Burnett London
Created award-winning ads for the Nintendo Wii. I wonder what they would’ve come up with for Wii U?
A PR and communications agency retained by Nintendo UK for corporate and consumer support prior to 2012.
A media agency that created an award-winning partnership campaign designed to get older people playing Nintendo DS.
A consumer PR agency recently appointed by Sony to handle the launch of PlayStation 4.
A marketing agency “immersed in gaming”, which supports PlayStation in Europe.
A PR company used by Capcom for the launch of Resident Evil 6 and the Golden Joysticks Awards for media coverage. They even have a page on their site titled “Videogame & Technology”.
The Red Consultancy
Believed to handle Activision’s UK and European PR, media relations, social media and events PR.
