Yuke's Co. Ltd (Also known as YUKE's Future Media Creators) is a video game company based in Osaka, Japan. It was established on February 26, 1993.

The company is best known for their development of the WWE SmackDown! game series (known as Exciting Pro Wrestling in Japan). Other games they have made include WWE Day of Reckoning, Evil Zone, EOE: Eve of Extinction, Sword of the Berserk: Guts' Rage, Berserk Millennium Falcon Arc ~Seimasenki no Sho~, Soukaigi, Rumble Roses, The Incredibles: Rise of the Underminer, UFC 2009 Undisputed, and the D1 Grand Prix series (which they also sponsor).

Recently, the company developed and published Neves, a puzzle game for the Nintendo DS.

Yuke's also owns 54% of New Japan Pro Wrestling, the top wrestling promotion in Japan. It is also their DVD production house.

In August 2019, it was announced that Yuke's had ended its partnership with 2K Games, the two having worked on the WWE 2K games since 2013's WWE 2K14, and development duties of the WWE games were turned over to Visual Concepts, starting with WWE 2K20 in 2019. They are currently developing the upcoming game AEW: Fight Forever (which is All Elite Wrestling's third game and the promotion's first console game), with the game being slated for a 2022 release.
