The Tokyo Design Center (東京デザインセンター) was a division of Sunsoft established in July 1987 [1]. Established with staff transferred from the main Aichi branch [2] and new hires, they developed a variety of games primarily for the NES/Famicom, PC Engine and Super Famicom. A number of employees split off to join F2 in the early 90s, and by 1997 they had stopped developing new games.
