Nintendo has entered an settlement to completely purchase the visible manufacturing firm Dynamo Footage, Inc., recognized beforehand for its work on the Pikmin Quick Films. Completion of the acquisition is anticipated to shut on October third, after which Dynamo Footage might be generally known as ‘Nintendo Footage Co., Ltd.’.
Within the official documentation on the acquisition, Nintendo said the next:
“Nintendo has determined to accumulate 100% of the excellent shares (excluding treasury shares) of Dynamo Footage and make it an entirely owned subsidiary to strengthen the planning and manufacturing construction of visible content material within the Nintendo Group.”
What does this imply going forwards? Properly, it is unclear at this stage. Nintendo states that the manufacturing firm will concentrate on producing visible content material for Nintendo IP, which is clear, however what precisely it will entail is anybody’s guess. Might be be extra brief films? Full size options? We’ll have to attend and see, however the long-term implications are attention-grabbing!
What do you make of this acquisition? Do you suppose Nintendo will begin in-house work on full-length films sooner or later? Tell us!
