Nintendo works in the same building as HAL, Gamefreak and other studios. While technically they’re third parties, I believe they’re basically operating as a de facto singular company—more or less first party. Rather than the old “second party”/“Dream Team” studios like Rare, Iguana, or DMA, who were close with Nintendo, but had a much greater deal of autonomy.

I describe myself as a little dose of toxic masculinity.
