ArtePiazza is a video game development and computer graphics studio based in Japan. Their name derives from the Italian words for "art" and "a public square".
The company is best known for its involvement in the development of the Dragon Quest series by Enix and later Square Enix. While ArtePiazza was mostly responsible for the CG design and illustrations of some of the early titles, they produced enhanced remakes of others. This includes Dragon Quest V for the Sony PlayStation 2, as well as Nintendo DS remakes of Dragon Quest IV, Dragon Quest V, and Dragon Quest VI.
Other projects besides those based on Square Enix properties include the development of the PSP and PlayStation 2 game Innocent Life: A Futuristic Harvest Moon and the co-production of Koei's Wii title Opoona.
