PlatinumGames says their partnership with Nintendo is very important, and they want it to be even stronger
The collaboration continues
When Nintendo and PlatinumGames started working together, it was quite surprising to fans of both companies. For a myriad or reasons, gamers never really saw Nintendo and Platinum as companies that would pair nicely, yet nowadays, the two companies are incredibly close. It seems like that collaborative relationship is going to continue in the future.
In an interview with Videogames Chronicle, PlatinumGames CEO Atsushi Inaba talked about their current relationship with Nintendo, and the desire to grow it going forward. It very much sounds like Nintendo is going to be a big part of whatever Platinum aims to do in the future.
Well obviously, (Nintendo’s former licensing GM and managing director of sales and planning, Takao) Yamane didn’t leave Nintendo on bad terms at all and this partnership that we have with Nintendo is very important to us right now and will be moving forward. I think with Yamane-san joining us here, PlatinumGames can definitely build an even stronger relationship with Nintendo moving forward. That can only be a positive thing for PlatinumGames. So yeah, we’re very glad to have him on board.
