Tose, the biggest developer you've never heard of.'s Editor-in-Chief Sam Kennedy has an excellent story up about a Japanese development studio which has created hundreds of games for almost every publisher you can think of. Going back to the NES days Tose has been making games for "publishers that simply don't have the resources to develop everything they'd like to release but don't want to necessarily give off that impression".

Often these games are ports or remakes, such as Valkyrie Profile: Lenneth for the PSP or Final Fantasy VI for GBA but they have also developed original titles such as Super Princess Peach for Nintendo and Dragon Quest: Rocket Slime for Square. It's a safe bet that the upcoming Final Fantasy I and II Anniversary Editions for PSP are being developed by them as well.

Do yourself a favor and give it a read, it's not often you actually see video game related stories that aren't just promos for the next big game coming out.
