AQ Interactive Logo

AQ Interactive was a Japanese video game developer and publisher. AQ stands for Artistic Quality. It was the parent company of the developers Artoon, Cavia and feelplus, and most recently the U.S. publisher Xseed Games. AQ Interactive and its subsidiaries produced games both under the AQ Interactive name, as well as developing for other publishers such as Microsoft Game Studios and Nintendo. This was a former creator of Arcana Heart series.


AQ Interactive was founded on October 1, 2005 when Cavia, established March 1, 2000, changed its name and became a holding company responsible for the management of subsidiary companies as well as sales and promotion of game software. The old company's game planning & development business became today's Cavia Inc. which remained a subsidiary of AQI, until July 2010, when Cavia was re-absorbed as a part of AQI.

It published its first game in November 2005, the Xbox 360 launch title Tetris: The Grand Master ACE.

In 2011, AQ Interactive merged with Marvelous Entertainment (along with mobile gaming company Liveware.) The combined company became Marvelous AQL Inc., and AQ was absorbed into the Marvelous business operations.
