Raizing, also known as Eighting Co. LTD. / 8ing, is a Japanese game developer and publisher, well known for their contributions to the arcade shooting game genre. Raizing acted as the development branch of the company, Eighting functioning as the publishing branch. Raizing was formed by former Compile employees, including Yuuichi Toyama, Kazuyuki Nakashima, and Yokoo Kenichi. A notable hire was Shinobu Yagawa previously from KID.
