Arika is a Japanese video game developer. It was formed in 1996 by former Capcom employees. The name of the company itself is the reverse of the name of the company's founder, Akira Nishitani, who (along with Akiman) created Street Fighter II.
Arika's first game was Street Fighter EX. It was successful and was followed up with two updates (Street Fighter EX + and EX + α for the PlayStation) and then two sequels, Street Fighter EX2 and Street Fighter EX3.
Arika is well known for the Tetris: The Grand Master series, Cardcaptor Sakura series, and an obscure Namco fighting game called Fighting Layer (that had two of their Street Fighter EX characters as playable). They also did MegaMan: Network Transmission (based on the famous MegaMan Battle Network series). A recent notable game by the developer is Endless Ocean, a scuba diving game for the Nintendo Wii.
