For a local animation studio, working with gaming industry stalwarts such as Sony and Square Enix, among other big names, may seem like a pipe dream.


That was not the case for Passionrepublic Sdn Bhd. It has produced a number of AAA (pronounced as triple-A) content for such game developers and publishers. Its projects include Batman: Arkham Night, Dark Souls 3, and Uncharted 4: Thief’s End.


In the video gaming industry, triple-A is an informal classification that refers to games with high development and promotion budgets, typically developed by large studios.


Despite its claim to fame, Passionrepublic president Ng Aik Sern remains down to earth. He says the company chose projects based on its ability to allow his company’s talent to grow in knowledge and experience.
