Smilebit (スマイルビット) was a research and development division within Sega. It is best seen as a logical continuation of Sega Software R&D Dept. 6 (formerly known as Sega CS1).

Smilebit was formed of developers from CS1 and CS2, as well as members from PC Software R&D. Over time, Smilebit became the de facto studio for sports games (although it also diversified into other genres).
