Toaplan Co. LTD.

Toaplan Co. LTD. was a prolific game developer that formed in the late 70s. They declared bankruptcy in 1994, and several former members of the company would go on to form their own companies, such as CAVE, Raizing, and Takumi.

In 2017, a Japanese company known as Tatsujin was formed, which is currently the rights holder of all Toaplan IPs. "Tatsujin" is also the Japanese name of the shooting game series known as Truxton in Western territories.
