In 2013, it was merged and became a brand of Kadokawa Corporation.

The company was the first distributor of the Pokémon Trading Card Game in Japan from 1996 until The Pokémon Company took over in 2006.[citation needed] Songs and albums from the Pokémon anime and the games were distributed under the Pikachu Records record label from 1997 to 2012. Following Media Factory's acquisition, game soundtracks as well as official Japanese strategy guides previously published by Media Factory are now published by OVERLAP, while anime songs and albums are now distributed by Sony Music Japan.
