Empty Clip Studios, LLC is an American video game developer based in San Diego, California.


Empty Clip Studios was founded in July 2007 by Matt Shores and Francois Bertrand.


It maintains an emulation software development kit known as Arsenal. It was used for the re-release of the Nintendo Entertainment System game F-117A Stealth Fighter and the Japanese-exclusive Famicom game Stargazer (星をみるひと, Hoshi wo Miru Hito).

Arsenal was also used for NHL '94 Rewind, a re-release of the Sega Genesis game NHL '94 which was available to purchase by people who owned NHL 21.

The promotional game, Streets of Kamurocho, which was released on Windows for the 60th anniversary of Sega, used Arsenal for the gameplay engine, which was from Streets of Rage 2.
