NEC Avenue was a software development division of NEC. It was merged with other studios to form NEC Interchannel in 1995.

Alongside Hudson Soft, NEC Avenue was responsible for publishing a significant portion of the PC Engine, CD-ROM² and Super CD-ROM² games library. It also created some accessories for the console, and published video game-related music CDs (which in 1994 represented about 10% of the business[1]).

The company should not be confused with other divisions of NEC, including NEC Home Electronics which was also publishing titles for the PC Engine family.
