In a recent interview with Japanese publication CG World the development team at Monolith Soft revealed that the Kyoto team helped out with some of the graphics in The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword, and more recently in Animal Crossing: New Leaf. The interview sheds some light on the company’s new studio in Kyoto, which was created so that the team could work closer with Nintendo. It genuinely sounds a great place to work.

  1. we all knew they helped with skyward sword, but new leaf is something i’m sure no one knew.

    1. It’s said that they did on Wikipedia for the best part of a year… Slow news site is slow.

  2. Best developers from N Monolith and Retro helping Nintendo from time to time developing games, when nintendo themselfs are screwin and lazy as hell, instead of lettin them to focus on their own projects. Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha.

      1. They just barely cant make handheld games anymore without help this is so funny hahahahahahahahahahaaha.

      2. Yeah. Damn them for getting their employees to work! Damn them for being economical!

      1. Nothing can beat the music of hundreds of fanboys screamin in unison! This is sickenin……. You sound like chapters from a self-help booklet!

        1. I can still hear the sony fanboys cries when ds overtook ps2 in best sells, or vita launching then being raped by 3ds lol

                  1. All things considering, the Wii U is about 2 million down on the Vita… in 12 months less time.

                  2. LOL, slit your wrist troll. How does it feel knowing you’re a complete faggot? :)

    1. Nintendo

      Established themselves as one of the best known and liked companies in history.

      Worth Billions.

      Has the most acclaimed, sold and known games and characters than any other game company.

      Always tries to reach out instead of pushing people off.

      Shigeru Miyamoto.

      Big three are overrated

      Sitting infront of his computer bashing and insulting Nintendo and its fans on a Nintendo dedicated site because he has nothing else to do in life.

      Yes they are lazy…

      1. Life…Dreams…Hope…Where do they come from? And where do they go? None of that junk is enough to fulfill your hearts! Destruction…Destruction is what makes life worth living! Destroy! Destroy! Destroy! Let’s destroy everything!

          1. Hee-hee-hee! But what fun is destruction if no “precious” things are lost?

    2. Do you ever proofread what you write?
      You’re honestly not even funny. I’m sure you have friends that like you and that’s great and all but I mean come on already you’re not even close to funny. SMH

      1. You really are a slow one. And always, always…ALWAYS such a little goody two-shoes!!!

        1. I don’t know if anyone else realizes, but he’s just quoting Kefka from Final Fantasy 6.

  3. If MonolithSoft can do it with Project X Zone (Namco-Bandai), they can do it with Animal Crossing: New Leaf and The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword (co-developing the games, that is). Just wait until next year with X.

      1. HEY GUUUURLFRIEND. WANNA GO OUT FOR A PIZZA LATER AND COME BACK TO MINE FOR A ROMANTIC BUBBLE BATHHHH X X X

  4. Well that is a good prove that they make Hi-quality games with rich gameplay.

  5. Monolith Soft is turning out to be Nintendo’s best purchace ever! The masterpiece that is Xenoblade, its possible sequel/succesor X (name not final) and the fact that they helped create two of the most surprising games for Wii and 3DS. Hope they repay them by ADDING SHULK TO SMASH BROS WII U 3DS!

  6. PLEASE UNDERSTAAAAAND BAAAABY~
    PLEASE UNDERSTAND THAT WE PRINT MOOOONEY~
    PLEASE UNDERSTAND THAT WE ONLY HAVE A FEW GAAMES TO CHOOSE FROM~
    PLEASE UNDERSTAND THAAAAAAAT !!!!
    OH PLEAAAAASE!
    UNDERSTAAAND!!!!!!
    please understand.

  7. Whoa, great! Even though everyone is calling Nintendo lazy for using their first or second-party studios, even though Microsoft and Sony does the exact same thing.

    Ya fucking retarded hypocrites (aka Ness, big three are overrated, Pinwheel), ugh…can’t they be banned (plus, BTaO quoted something from a SNES game, and Ness is the name of a chara form a Nintendo game).

  8. I did not know this and I’m glad they are helping creating great games.

    Xenoblade the Wii game! Sucks that not everybody gets to experience because of the stupid limited release!

      1. I don’t have the article, but I remember a long time ago on this site there was an article. It was about Reggie stating how Nintendo of America would definitely publish Monolith’s next game themselves. Sorry I do not have the article. Try searching for it and you will see what I am talking about.

  9. Hopefully they can help out with Zelda U as well as work on X. Imagine if the next Zelda uses the graphics engine that X is using. Epic!

  10. I already found out about AC:NL because I saw the games credits today.
    I didn’t know about SS though. But I would have notices in the credits if I had known who they were when I played SS lol
