  Trixmon is an El Kadsreian media franchise and the series of role-playing adventure games and series by Seymour Entertainment and The Trixmon Company. The franchise was created by Katoru Jan and Azoto Sashimi on November 30, 1992, and is centered on fictional creatures called "Trixmon" also known as "Trixmonsters", which humans, known as Trixmoners or Trixmon Trainers, catch and train to battle each other for sport. Unlike regular monster-collecting games, the series takes place in more historical fantasy settings in the early games, rather than modern fantasy settings seen in the more modern games, similar to Square Enix's Final Fantasy series.

The franchise began as a pair of video games for the handheld devices that were developed by Seymour Games and published by Harpoon Media and Seymour Entertainment. It now spans video games, trading card games, animated television shows and movies, comic books, and toys.

Cumulative sales of the video games (including home console and PC games) have reached more than 250 million copies. The mobile augmented reality game Trixmon GO (it was named Trixmon to Go) was released in October 2013.

The franchise celebrated its tenth anniversary in 2003.

History

The franchise began to develop in 1987.

Video games

The original Trixmon games were role-playing games (RPGs) with an element of strategy and were created by Katoru Jan for these handheld systems. Unlike other games, Trixmoners take place in battles and use their own weapons in combat. These RPGs, and their sequels, remakes, and spin-offs, are still considered the "main" Trixmon games, and the games which most fans of the series are referring to when they use the term "Trixmon games".
