Manga Publisher Seven Seas Entertainment has acquired complete ownership interest in game company Shinobi 7, and has set up a flooring deal with Diamond/Alliance for Shinobi 7 products. [Note:  corrected December 17, 2018 to reflect new information provided by Shinobi 7.  Although this deal was characterized as an "exclusive distribution deal" by Shinobi 7 at the time, it is more accurately described as a "flooring" relationship, under which Diamond/Alliance stores inventory and ships it to other distributors as needed.-- ed.]

Shinobi 7 was formed by Seven Seas Entertainment and Ninja Division in 2016 (see “Seven Seas and Ninja Division Form New Game Company”). Shinobi 7 has released the Space Dandy: Galactic Deck-Building Game; Tokyo Ghoul: The Card Game; and publishes the My Little Pony: Tails of Equestria RPG in the U.S. and Canada through a deal with European studio River Horse Games (see “Ninja Division and Shinobi 7 Bring 'My Little Pony' RPG to North America”). The Tokyo Ghoul card game and My Little Pony RPG will be available through Ninja Division until March 15.

Shinobi 7 is now a subsidiary of Seven Seas Entertainment and will operate with an independent management and production team.
