Nintendo Job Description Hints At Future IP Usage

Nintendo of America is once again recruiting talented individuals to help them with various areas of business. One of the more recent positions is that of a IP Art Specialist which hints at the usage and design of Nintendo characters for future projects on video games and movies by the company. Here’s the description of duties.

  • An individual contributor that supports the Director of Intellectual Property (IP) Management in evaluating various artwork and submissions for products and promotional materials using Nintendo game characters and franchises such as Super Mario, Donkey Kong, Zelda, and Splatoon.
  • Evaluate artwork submissions to ensure the usage and design of Nintendo characters and/or other IP used within the overall design are in compliance with the Nintendo Style Guidelines. The artwork may be stand-alone items or Nintendo characters or IP incorporated into merchandise, including toys, figures and clothing; promotional materials for events including objects and full-body suits; and character proposals and artwork for use in movies and external websites.
  • Create reports and provide feedback and instructions to submitters and licensees on how to appropriately modify drawings and other submissions to meet compliance standards under the guidance of the Director of IP Management.
  • Create reference materials and documentation of game characters for licensees including 3D character posing, multi-view drawing, and color coordination.
  • Work directly with Director of IP Management and as needed the Nintendo Japan Licensing team to maintain Nintendo’s high standard of artwork quality and protect Nintendo IP and character images.

  1. “Evaluate artwork submissions to ensure the usage and design of Nintendo characters and/or other IP used within the overall design are in compliance with the Nintendo Style Guidelines.”

    Given that Nintendo is the same company that made Disney redo the way Bowser drinks his fucking coffee in Wreck-It Ralph 6 times, good luck to anyone who tries to draw Luigi doing parkour or Samus playing Sudoku or an Inkling playing hopscotch.

    “No no, you stupid fool- Link’s head is not lifted up enough! Start over from scratch!”
    “B-but it took 6 hours to render this as is-”
    “Did I stutter!?”

  2. In regards to clothing I know of one brand that has already licensed their stuff but haven’t made it public.

    I plan to buy every single pair of Nintendo sneakers that they release.
