TOSE Software Co. (simply referred to as TOSE) is a Japanese "behind the scenes" video game company. Originally a part of Toa Seiko, TOSE branched off from it as an independent company in 1979, establishing its headquarters in Higashiyama-ku, Kyoto. Since its inception, TOSE is believed to have been involved in the development of over 1,000 games; however, the company has refused to be credited in most of the games it has worked on, for which it has gained a reputation. TOSE is most well-known for its series The Legendary Starfy, featuring the character Starfy, who has made a few cameos within the Super Mario franchise.

TOSE first contributed to the Super Mario franchise by assisting in the development of Mario's Tennis on the Virtual Boy. TOSE later helped Nintendo in developing the Game & Watch Gallery series of games, and even later co-developed Super Princess Peach alongside Nintendo SPD Group No.2. TOSE also helped in the development of Square Enix's Fortune Street.
