Pre-Stage Inc. (株式会社プレ・ステージ). Established in 1959, incorporated December 6, 1991. Headed by Hiroshi Fujimoto (藤本浩史). Built out a console development team around 1994 which included a number of former Technos Japan, Sting, and KID staff; this team appears to have been headed by Double Dragon creator Yoshihisa Kishimoto (岸本良久).

Most of this team left around 1998, though the company continued to produce mobile and edutainment titles for a few years after. Today the company's focus is on contract software development for businesses.
