Back in 2011, Monolith Soft had roughly 70 employees. This was when the developer opened a second studio in Kyoto to be closer to Nintendo. Monolith Soft would help work on some of Nintendo's biggest titles at the time, including The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword. This was the year that things would really pick up for Monolith Soft.
Monolith Soft has grown in total employees every single year since 2011. That brings us to where they are in 2020, sitting at 243 employees in total. This is the biggest amount of employees the company has had working under their roof ever. Some of them surely worked hard on Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition, and other unnamed projects. Hopefully we get a peek at those titles soon!
