Nintendo is building a Game Development Office at its former headquarters
Nintendo announced that it is expanding to two new locations, including building a new studio on the site of its previous headquarters.
Nintendo is a large and growing company that is responsible not only for producing its own hugely popular console like the Nintendo Switch, but also for producing some of the most popular first-party game releases on the internet. world. In the year 2000, Nintendo grew out of the headquarters it had been in for decades, although it remained in Kyoto. That growth continued into 2021, when Nintendo announced that they would be expanding one more time – to the location of their former headquarters.
On Friday, Nintendo announced that it is working on two significant expansions for its game development teams. One of those extensions took the form of a new building built on Kyoto location of its former headquarters. Other buildings near the site already house Nintendo’s Mario Club QA Team and Nintendo’s Research Center Kyoto, so it can be thought of as a new facility and expansion of Nintendo’s existing studios in the area. .
The second expansion attempt involved Nintendo renting two floors from a new government building located near the current one Nintendo Headquarters. The 6th and 7th floors of the Kyoto Municipal Waterworks Building will be leased from May 2022 onwards. These extensions are described as serving two purposes. 100 billion yen (880 million) will be spent to expand Nintendo’s game development efforts while 50 billion yen ($440 million) will in turn be used to produce non-game media.
Nintendo says that they were able to expand so aggressively in part because Nintendo Switch Performance Exceeds Expectations. Of course, Nintendo also says that the company has always prioritized growth in its “continuous” effort to deliver products and services that “bring new surprises”. It is also not a pity that Nintendo will receive 160 million yen ($1.4 million) a year from the KotoCity Business Location Promotion system for the next few years if it hires a certain number of new employees in the area. area.
Nintendo fans may already be familiar with the rationale for both of these expansions. First, Nintendo is increasingly reliant on third-party partners for game development. In particular, Bandai Namco has made some of Nintendo’s biggest releases over the past few years, including Super Smash Bros.. Nintendo is also trying to break into the movie business, with an animated Mario in development.
The expansion will likely be well received by Nintendo fans who want more Nintendo games. Watch both PlayStation and Xbox massive expansion, acquiring studios to release first-party games, while watching Nintendo First Party Releases increasingly rare despite the Switch’s success, is an unpleasant situation. Nintendo However, it seems poised to change that, even if it will take time for faster development.
