CA Sega Joypolis Ltd.[a] (formerly Sega Live Creation Inc.)[b] is a subsidiary of the Chinese company China Animations Character Co., which controls Sega-branded Amusement Parks in Asia, such as Joypolis.

History[edit]

The company was originally founded in April 2015, as Sega Sammy Holdings' amusement park division. Ownership of the Joypolis parks transitioned to this new company except for the Okayama branch, which transitioned to the arcade focused Sega Entertainment Co., Ltd.

In July 2015, the company opened a Joypolis in Quingdo, their first venue located outside Japan.

Sega announced in 2016 that China Animations would acquire a majority stake in Sega Live Creation for 600 million yen, effective January 2017.[1] After the ownership transitioned, China Animations renamed Sega Live Creation to CA Sega Joypolis Ltd, with Sega no-longer fully owning the parks. the 3 Orbi venues remained under the ownership of Sega, and Sega Republic was later closed down after the Sega license expired.
