'Tori Corporation' (Japanese: 株式会社トーリ; Hepburn: 'Kabushiki Gaisha Tōri') was a Japanese video game developer of various arcade games throughout the mid 1990s. The company was founded in 1977 and manufactured arcade parts across Japan. Tori is best known for their Exelrate series of futuristic racing games and Counter Attack. The company dissolved in the early 2000s, with Forcefield Entertainment purchasing all of the company's assets in 2001.
Tori Corporation was founded in July 1977 and manufactured parts and hardware for arcade games in Japan. That same year the company produced its first video game, Space Gunman. The company later became a video game only company and later produced the Densha Pilot, Exelrate and Counter Attack franchises. By the mid to late 1990s, the company was suffering financially and closed their video game division after Space Gunman 2 in 1999. The company later went back to manufacturing parts and hardware for video arcade games. The company finally closed in April 2000 with their assets being purchased by Forcefield Limited.
