One of the most famous names in {{Arcade Game}}s, Taito was founded in 1953 as Taito Trading Company. One of its first products Taito sold was vodka, perhaps not surprising since founder, Michael Kogan, was a Russian Jew. But Taito branched into all sorts of businesses, including amusement equipment, and in 1973 Taito became one of the first Japanese companies to enter the video game industry. Taito's ''VideoGame/SpaceInvaders'', released in 1978, became an international phenomenon, leading to the establishment of the subsidiary Taito America in 1979. Taito's leading position in the video game industry enabled it to produce and distribute many games created by smaller developers such as Creator/{{Allumer}}, Hot-B, Kaneko, Creator/{{Natsume}}, Technos Japan and Creator/{{Toaplan}}. Taito closed its North American subsidiaries in 1995, due in part to the decline of arcades in the U.S. Several key members of the VideoGame/PsychicForce and VideoGame/RaySeries games would go on to form ''Creator/CyberConnect2''.
