Iwasaki logo

Iwasaki Electronics Co., Ltd. (岩崎技研工業株式会社; Iwasaki Giken Kogyo Co., Ltd.; formerly Iwasaki Engineering Co., Ltd. in English) was a Kyoto-based company with an office in Tokyo. It was primarily known for making software development tools such as in-circuit emulators. Hiroji Iwasaki was the company president. [1]

Iwasaki was first contracted by Nintendo to reverse engineer Donkey Kong so that it could produce the sequel Donkey Kong Junior. [2] Nintendo did not have the source code as that was written by another company (Ikegami Tsushinki). Iwasaki would go on to program several of Nintendo's early Famicom/NES games. Several members of Iwasaki then started a new company in 1986 called Intelligent Systems, which also develops games and tools and has maintained a close relationship with Nintendo for its entire existence.
