For the second semester in a row, the ETC is showing Osaka what it does best- rapid innovation and development of cross-discipline practical entertainment experiences. Working in collaboration with Sharp Corporation, the team will be designing new and creative user experiences for the third time on an exciting and futuristic new project. Continuing this unique partnership with Sharp Corporation will help ensure the ETC stays on the cutting edge of global technological development well into the future by creating never-before-seen technologies for the world of consumer electronics.
Though we can hardly contain our excitement and enthusiasm regarding this amazing opportunity, we are bound by a blood oath not to divulge the nature of our project. What we can tell you is the nature of our lives here in the beautiful coastal city of Osaka, Japan. Outside of our office window in the Asian and Pacific Trade Center, we can see the sway of palm trees as everything from romantically lit sail boats to massive transport freighters float into our harbor. Dozens of restaurants, department stores and other conveniences are literally right out our door, and even more are available in the fashionable World Trade Center attached to the ATC, along with the occasional concert or event. On weekends and holidays, the building is bustling with vendors, bands and cosplayers, and when we're not at the office we can access the rest of Japan's second largest city using a convenient subway system that connects all of Osaka. It's wonderful and especially fitting being located in Japan's center of entertainment and technology. Truly with Capcom, Square Enix and Nintendo right down the street, the energy and inspiration is palatable.
