SETA Corporation (株式会社セタ Kabushiki-Gaisha Seta) (Full company name Super Entertainment and Total Amusement) was a Japanese computer gaming company, founded on October 1, 1985 [1] and dissolved on January 23, 2009. Seta was headquartered in Kōtō, Tokyo.[2] The American branch of Seta was located in Las Vegas, Nevada. [3]

As a video game publisher, it made games for the Nintendo Entertainment System, the Super Nintendo Entertainment System, and various other systems. It made games in North America but mainly Japan (specialising in golf and puzzle titles). SETA also developed the arcade system, the Aleck 64 which was based on N64 architecture. Also, SETA co-developed the SSV (Sammy, SETA, Visco) system.

On December 2008, parent company Aruze announced that Seta decided to close shop after 23 years of existence:

"Based on the deterioration of economic conditions within Japan as caused by the current international financial crisis, Seta came to the conclusion that the continuation of its business on its own would be difficult, and thereby resolved its dissolution and liquidation." [4]
