Tradewest is a American video game publisher, known for publishing the Battletoads and Double Dragon games in North America.


The company was founded in 1986 by John Rowe, Leland Cook and Byron Cook, originally publishing SNK's Arcade titles but later moving to the console market. The company would be acquired in 1994 by WMS Industries and dissolved, alongside Williams and other companies purchased by WMS, into Midway.

In 2009 the European branch of Midway Games would rebrand themselves as Tradewest Games, effectively reviving the company 15 years later, though they eventually closed their doors definitely in 2013.
