Change of The R&D Teams:

The President of Nintendo, Satoru Iwata has completely reorganized these development group teams within Nintendo. Following the trend of allocating more and more resources behind Shigeru Miyamoto's EAD group, Nintendo has finally decided to merge each and all of  its software designers under the EAD division. As of 2005, Nintendo's divisions are composed of the following groups:

  • Nintendo Integrated Research & Development
  • Nintendo Technology & Development
  • Nintendo Software Production & Development
  • Nintendo Entertainment Analysis & Development

The Nintendo R&D1, Nintendo R&D2, and Nintendo-Special Planning & Development no longer exist. For the most part Nintendo has extracted all of the software designers of those three divisions and has blended them with the EAD group, and has now divided EAD into several different sectors. Nintendo Technology & Development is a mix of the hardware side of Nintendo R&D2 combined with Nintendo R&E while Nintendo Software Production & Development is a new division made for out of country and overseas production of first-party software with subsidiary and partnered development groups such as Retro Studios, Kuju Entertainment, and n-Space.
