Arika is a Japanese video game company formed in 1995 by former employees of Capcom. The company now works with Nintendo to produce video games for the WiiWare and DSiWare services. Their work in the Mario franchise mostly consists of the Dr. Mario series, namely Dr. Mario Online Rx, Dr. Mario Express, Dr. Luigi, and Dr. Mario: Miracle Cure. Outside of the Dr. Mario series, Arika developed Super Mario Bros. 35, a version of Super Mario Bros. that features battle royale mechanics similar to those from Tetris 99, another game developed by Arika.[1]

Outside of the Mario franchise, the company also developed the Tetris: The Grand Master series, Street Fighter EX, and the Endless Ocean series.
