Japanese video game developer Santos shared a close relationship with Sega, with that company often manufacturing or publishing Santos' games. As Santos began experiencing financial troubles around the dawn of the 1990s, Sega acquired the company's employees and its games in December 1991 and established an entirely new company with much of the same staff and development projects named Megasoft.
Megasoft only worked on the production of four games (the most notable being Shinobi III: Return of the Ninja Master) before the subsidiary was largely dissolved and merged into Sega proper in November 1992. Many of Megasoft's games were released after the company's game development capabilities had ceased to exist.
While Megasoft was largely merged into Sega in November 1992, the subsidiary continued to exist in some form until 1996, when it was officially liquidated.
