Team Deer Force was a development team within Intelligent Systems that produced Super Metroid. The team consisted of members from Team Shikamaru and GameBoy R&D, including Makoto Kanō, Yoshio Sakamoto and Toru Osawa, veterans of the previous two games in the series. In Super Metroid, the final credit before the ending is "Produced by Deer Force of Team Shikamaru". Team Shikamaru assisted Deer Force with the development of Super Famicom Wars. Deer Force's last credited game was Teleroboxer in 1995. It has presumably disbanded since.
