To protect the data, Kadokawa shut down the affected servers and began a thorough analysis and investigation of the incident. Preliminary information suggests it may have been a cyber attack.

Kadokawa is committed to protecting and restoring its systems and, so far, there is no confirmation of data breaches. The Nico Nico streaming service and the online store KADOKAWA Game Linkage were also affected. The company assured that it does not store users’ credit card information, eliminating the risk of such data being leaked.

We will continue to monitor this situation to verify if it was indeed a cyber attack and if any data was leaked.
