Bandai Namco Announces new development studio Studio 2/Studio S that exists to work on Nintendo Games
Signs of things to come?
Bandai Namco have announced the formation of a new studio entitled Studio 2 and Studio S which will focus on development for Nintendo titles. Their website, which is only in Japanese and will be linked below, cites their work on the ARMS, Mario Kart, and Super Smash Bros. series.
Bandai Namco has been one of Nintendo’s biggest developmental supporters of the Switch era. With big moneymaking series like Mario Kart and Smash in their repertoire it makes sense why Bandai Namco would want to commit so fully to Nintendo.
This undoubtedly fuels speculation for future Mario Kart and Smash Bros. titles given that both games have finished their DLC support but we will just have to wait and see.
