Kikizo Relaunching in November
Bear with us and forgive the lack of new stuff, as we undergo the DADDY of all rebirths.
Things have been a little quiet around here lately, but there's a good reason for it - and it's not that our that our social lives improved so drastically that work's taken a back seat...
The actual reason is that we've been readying the final phase of our biggest transformation ever. It's a transformation that kicked off at the start of this year, and dropped its first fruits with the launches of Flytrap Games and Blu-ray Daily (both of which are still running as normal).
But as we hinted at the time, that was just the beginning. The final stage of the rebirth of Kikizo is scheduled towards the end of October / early November, and will come complete with a NEW NAME for the site - and the simultaneous launch of an additional FOUR new sites that are ALL gaming focused.
We know it's a bit rubbish to suspend normal service while we work on all of that, but everything's being saved for the revamped site including this month's reviews and the killer interviews we're often best known for. We know it'll be worth it.
We'll be introducing some new faces on our team, returning to our sorely missed video coverage (but not in the way you might expect), and basically this will be a complete rebirth for us in editorial, technical, creative and commercial terms - we're really excited to show you what we've been up to.
We'll give you a shout when we're ready.
Kikizo has punched above its weight since 1998, and is still passionate after more than a decade of coverage. Kikizo obsessively brings the games industry's biggest names and brands into gamers' homes with breaking news and market leading interviews from the frontline - for example, it's currently the only consumer gaming site in the world to have interviewed all three platforms' global bosses: Satoru Iwata, Kaz Hirai & Robbie Bach.
Based in London's Leicester Square, Kikizo reaches a combined audience of over two million enthusiast and casual gamers per month (Hitslink/comScore) across Kikizo.com and a mix syndication partners including AOL, for a product that's as beneficial to game publishers as it is to gamers.
In 2009, Kikizo unveiled FlytrapGames.com, a new casual gaming site launched in partnership with AOL, followed by BlurayDaily.com, a Blu-ray movies site dedicated to one of entertainment's fastest growing and most valuable audiences. Further site launches are also in the pipeline.
