Tier One Entertainment, a gaming and esports entertainment company has announced its first foray outside of the Southeast Asia region by expanding to Japan. The expansion is a part of Tier One Entertainment’s strategic move when they signed an investment deal with KAYAC, a Japan-based interior firm, and Warner Music Group, a global media company that has a strong market presence in Japan.
Along with its plans to discover the hottest up-and-coming local talents to sign and develop, Tier One Entertainment is debuting its first idol group in Japan to delight Japanese and global fans.
These four multi-talented individuals are set to redefine what it means to be an influencer and content creator who challenges the status quo. The idol group will be a new breed of Tier One talents who will elevate the level of content creation to new heights, delighting fans across the globe. The first member was announced by the company, with details shared by its Chief Executive Officer, Tryke Gutierrez, during the official launch live stream on 8 October. Multi-talented model and cosplayer Harry “har_fie” Field will be the first member of “Project 4,” the unofficial name of the idol group. The rest of the members will be revealed in a series of promotions that Tier One Entertainment will launch in the next couple of months.
With the company strategically positioned at the intersection of content creation, media properties, and esports, the launch of the new idol group comes along with its vision of bringing gaming to the mainstream. Moreover, the gaming and esports company also are looking to find those who are willing to join its mission in bringing esports and gaming to the mainstream as it opens its office in Japan this year.
