The story is infamous by now. Nintendo and Intelligent Systems were pretty much ready to give up on Fire Emblem as a franchise, but they decided to give things one last shot. That lead to Fire Emblem Awakening, which ended up being an absolutely astronomical hit. It was the game that saved the franchise, and has helped propel it to the heights of today.
Fire Emblem Awakening launhced in 2012, and Intelligent Systems has been growing ever since. As of Jan. 2020, the developer employs 169 staffers, which is the highest number ever. Check out the split between what those staffers do below.
Graphic Designers – 68
Programmers – 63
Planners (Designers) – 14
Sound Creators – 10
Hardware Engineers – 4
General Affairs/Accounting/Sales – 10
It's worth pointing out that the percentage of female employees at Intelligent Systems has been growing as well, with the biggest jump taking place since 2018, with female staffers seeing an increase to 44% from 30%. All this success has lead to quite the increase in capital, which is currently listed at 23.9 million yen, a 276% increase over capital in 2017.
