Nintendo has announced their acquisition of the Japanese CG-animation studio, Dynamo Pictures. The acquisition, which will give Nintendo a 100% stake in the company, will go through on October 3rd, 2022, where Nintendo will then rename the studio to Nintendo Pictures. Nintendo says they’ll be using Dynamo Pictures to “focus on development of visual content utilizing Nintendo IP.”
Dynamo Pictures has already worked with Nintendo on various projects, as they are responsible for the animation of the Pikmin Short Movies, as well as some post-production for Metroid: Other M. Outside of the realm of Nintendo though, Dynamo Pictures has done motion capture for Monster Hunter World, Persona 5, Death Stranding, and NieR Replicant, amongst many others.
