Tose Co., Ltd. (株式会社トーセ Kabushiki-gaisha Tōse ) is a video game development company based in Kyoto, Japan. It is most known for developing Nintendo's Game & Watch Gallery series, various Dragon Ball games, as well as other Nintendo products. Tose has developed or co-developed over 1,000 games since the company's inception in 1979, but is never credited in the games themselves (an exception to this is Game & Watch Gallery 4 and the The Legendary Starfy series, as Tose shares the copyright with Nintendo), and according to the American Nintendo Power Magazine, TOSE likes it that way. "We're always behind the scenes," said Masa Agarida, Vice President of Tose's U.S. division. "Our policy is not to have a vision. Instead, we follow our customers' visions. Most of the time we refuse to put our name on the games, not even staff names." As such, Tose has gained a reputation for being a "ghost developer".
