Burst Arts Inc. (株式会社バーストアーツ) is a Japanese video game publisher founded on September 15, 1992. Originally formed as a subsidiary of Namco, its well-known line of work include PetropolisO.K. Buster (after buying it from Sony), Power Battlers, Robot Summoner KiteDimenbeasts, and Realm Souls.

As of 2011, Burst Arts has severed ties with Namco and ended up merging with Multisoft. Since then, their franchises were marked with well-deserved praise, with the company acknowledging that they have prioritized quality over anything else.
