Starfy Wiki logo.png This article is a short summary of TOSE.
Starfy Wiki features a more in-depth article.

TOSE (branched out from Toa Seiko; the parent company) is a large Japanese company that works on thousands of games as what is referred to as a 'ghost developer'; a developer that rarely attributes themselves for their work. This is because they have strict confidentiality agreements with their clients.

TOSE has worked with Nintendo many times. Although most of TOSE's works are meant to be kept secretive, they legally openly credit themselves in works such as The Legendary Starfy series (conceived by both TOSE and Nintendo; which they also partly share the rights to with Nintendo) and some copyright to the Famicom Tantei Club series is owned by TOSE. TOSE developers are also overtly disclosed in the credits of Dragon Quest VIII: Journey of the Cursed King.
