Over the past few weeks we have witnessed a rush to the latest acquisition that has had Sony and Microsoft as protagonists: now also Nintendo has taken the field, albeit in a much more local context. The big N has in fact just bought SRD co a historic Japanese studio that will now join the Nintendo stables becoming an internal team.
Nintendo acquires SRD co
The agreement with Nintendo is expected to end on April 1st and will make SRD co. one of the internal studios of the great N. It is actually almost a formality, given that the studio in question is one of the historic ones in Tokyo and has already collaborated on several occasions with the Kyoto house for the production of several exclusives in the course of time like Donkey Kong and The Legend of Zelda.
The acquisition therefore stands as a confirmation of the good relations between the two realities, which will finally be able to work together more carefully on various projects.
Specifically, as reported by the editorial staff of Gameindustrythe company in this way will be able to draw on one greater availability of resources development for future first party software based in Kyoto.
A communication of this kind, however, suggests that something is already actually boiling in the pot, even if Nintendo has not yet communicated anything in this regard. However, we do not doubt that the company will be able to exploit the new reality to its full potential; indeed it will be interesting to find out what will be the first project that the studio will take care of now that it is part of the stables of the great N.
