Arena Entertainment, Inc. was a company set up by Mirrorsoft for publishing video games in the United States.

Mirrorsoft got into financial troubles when its owner Robert Maxwell was found dead in November 1991, with the business being purchased by Acclaim Entertainment in early 1992[3][4]. Acclaim retired the Mirrorsoft brand but kept the Arena name in use (alongside Flying Edge) until 1994, when it too was retired in favour of Acclaim.
