Raizing / Eighting / 8ing

Raizing, also known as Eighting Co. LTD. / 8ing, is a Japanese game developer and publisher, well known for their contributions to the arcade shooting game genre. Raizing acted as the development branch of the company, Eighting functioning as the publishing branch. Raizing was comprised of former Compile and Toaplan employees, including Sotoyama Yuuichi, Kazuyuki Nakashima, Yokoo Kenichi, and Shinobu Yagawa. Yagawa was involved in programming for the games Battle Garegga, Armed Police Batrider, and Battle Bakraid, and he would eventually move on to work at CAVE, contributing to various projects such as DoDonPachi Dai-Fukkatsu Black Label.

Raizing was incorporated into Eighting in 2000, and they have effectively ended development of shoot-em-ups since then.
