For now, this is all the information released by Nintendo, but surely we will have more news over the next few months, when the new study takes shape.
However, the company has also published a render depicting how this new building should look once completed, even if this image does not actually leave much room for imagination, since it is a rather traditional office building. In Nintendo’s plans, therefore, a simple but functional workplace seems to emerge and that we do not doubt will be used by the company to improve the video game development process.
