Headquarters: Japan

WOW Entertainment (ワウ エンターテイメント) was a development company housed within Sega during 2000 to 2003.

It can be seen as the logical continuation of Sega Software R&D Dept. #1 (formerly Sega AM1)[1]. Unlike AM1, however, WOW was made to focus its efforts on the home market, despite having maintained its distance during the Sega Saturn years.

In 2003 WOW Entertainment merged with Overworks to become Sega WOW (briefly "WOW Works").
