Dynamo Pictures acquisition complete

Nintendo has completed its acquisition of CG production company Dynamo Pictures, and has now restructured and relaunched the studio as Nintendo Pictures. The company will now work with Nintendo on video production and the facilitation of its motion capture and other CGI projects.

Dynamo Pictures confirmed the relaunch on its newly designed website, now emblazoned with the Nintendo Pictures logo and sporting the familiar red-and-white color scheme.

“We aim to have consumers around the world learn about Nintendo characters through video, and to create unique videos that will remain in their memories forever”, reads a short statement (as translated by Google.) “To that end, each and every one of our employees will always think about what our customers around the world will find interesting, and we will work hard to create an organization that can continue to grow by engaging in video production with interest.

“We will continue to challenge ourselves to continue providing unique and surprising images to customers around the world, transcending generations and eras.”

Dynamo Pictures has formally worked with Nintendo and other video game developers to provide cutscenes, intros, and other animated elements for titles such as Metroid: Other M, Final Fantasy XIII-2, Persona 5, Yakuza, and Catherine. Acquired by Nintendo after the publisher purchased in July of this year, it is expected that the studio will now work exclusively for the publisher under its new moniker.
