Feels like a step in avoiding another situation like they just had when Nintendo took most of Monolith Soft's employees to help with BotW while leaving Monolith Soft with a skeleton crew to work on Xenoblade 2.

Yeah, I also get the feeling that this new team will be used to support other Nintendo teams similarly to the Kyoto one while the main team is now totally free so that they can improve their software output
