Renovation Products was Telenet Japan's US publisher of Sega Mega Drive games, publishing both Telenet's own games and several non-Telenet Japan titles. When Telenet stopped developing on Sega's systems in 1993, Sega acquired the studio (though not before publishing a single SNES game, Telenet's Doomsday Warrior) and they promptly disappeared.

Very few of Renovation's games were released in Europe, however a deal was at one point struck with Ubisoft for distribution in that region[1], which was subsequently challenged by Sega for undisclosed reasons[2]. No games were officially released, however, and Ubisoft themselves did not publish a game for Mega Drive hardware until Street Racer in 1995.

President Hideaki Irie would later become COO of Sega of America[3][4].
