Nintendo to acquire SRD Co Ltd

February 24, 2022

Earlier today,  Nintendo Japan announced that Nintendo is in the process of acquiring SRD Co LTD with the purchase due to be finalised early in April 2022. Now, don’t worry if you didn’t immediately recognise the name. Unlike the big recent Xbox and PlayStation acquisitions, this was definitely a more low key affair.

SRD Co Ltd has actually been a long time partner of Nintendo. In fact, according to, SRD has been working with Nintendo for several decades “assist[ing] with the programming and development” as far back as Super Mario Bros., The Legend of Zelda and Donkey Kong on the NES/Famicom and most recently on Game Builder Garage for the Switch (which we really loved – check out our review here). So, this is very much a making a team that worked exclusively for Nintendo, completely internal to boost development capabilities – or as it is stated officially

…serve to strengthen the management based of SRD and secure the availability of software development resources for Nintendo, in addition to facilitating an anticipated improvement in software development efficiency.
