Japanese game company M2 is probably best known for their lovingly ported retro game releases such as the “SEGA 3D Classics” series on 3DS, as well as their "ReBirth" game series which consists of original sequels to popular classic games. Despite their long history in game industry, only recently has M2 ventured into releasing completely original titles not based on any established franchises. They have also recently gained attention with their 2D character animation tool, E-mote.
