Personnel Listing - Integrated Research & Development Division (IRD)

The personnel database is a collection of Nintendo or Nintendo related personnel profiles from all over the world. Much of the information gathered from the personnel comes through extensive research and analysis. The driving force behind this section was to showcase the large talent pool of developers working on Nintendo games. It is far bigger than the three or four men that appear on stage during the annual E3 convention shows. Please credit our website if you plan on borrowing any material. As with all of our sections and features, stay tuned for regular updates. Please enjoy the plethora of content and be encouraged to submit any additional information to our public forums.
