Saudi crown prince seeks soft power in gaming hub Japan

Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman visits Japan next week, where he will hold talks on energy as he hunts for more opportunities in gaming as he tries to improve Saudi Arabia’s image.

The reputed ‘Call of Duty’ fan has launched a multi-billion dollar venture into the gaming sector – from small eSports to game development – as part of his Vision 2030 transformation strategy for the oil-rich kingdom.

Saudi Arabia’s sovereign wealth fund has a roughly 8% stake in Nintendo, and the country is planning a theme park based on the Japanese manga franchise “Dragon Ball” in a new “entertainment city” outside Riyadh.
