Cing is the company behind Trace Memory, also known as Another Code, as well as Hotel Dusk!
Town Factory's more of a design studio, they're the team comprised of ex-Level 5 (Layton) folks. Town Factory also just made Kizuna with Jaleco for Wii. Whether that's good or not... you be the judge.
The developer Vanpool, which made Freshly-Picked Tingle's Rosy Rupeeland, also helped out with the audio and sound effects apparently.
Team Member Trivia:
Kazuyuki Kurashima did character designs in Little King's Story, Mario RPG and Superstar Saga. And voiced Tingle in Freshly-Picked Tingle's Rosy Rupeeland.
Yoko Shimomura worked on a few songs, such as the one in the first trailer that's reused in the intro of the game. Composed for all four Mario RPG games, the original SNES game, and the three DS games.
Little King's Story begins with the story of a young boy named Corobo. Shy and without many friends, Corobo stumbles upon a mysterious and powerful crown whilst walking in the forest near his village. He soon discovers that the crown grants him the ability to charm any person and make them follow his orders. Suddenly, Howzer, the bull-knight appears informing Corobo that he is now King of the village and that he must not take this responsibility lightly. Returning to his sleepy village as a King instead of a shy little boy, Corobo begins a quest to turn his small hamlet into a noble, fantastic kingdom.
Little King's Story is the result of the combined heavyweight development team from some of Japan's most successful titles and features key contributors from the Harvest Moon series, Final Fantasy XII, DragonQuest VIII, Mario & Luigi RPG, Kingdom Hearts and Chulip.
