Nintendo dethrones EA in this year's Develop 100

Develop: The numbers are in - and Nintendo has shot to the top of our yearly Develop 100.

Put together in association with Sheridans and amBX, the Develop 100 ranks the world's games development studios according to the sales of their games at UK retail as according to ChartTrack data. The 2008 edition comes free with every copy of the April edition of Develop, arriving with subscribers today.

In taking the number one spot, Nintendo dethrones EA Canada which held the top place in the previous three editions of the list. Games made by the firm's Kyoto and Tokyo-based development teams, which include Brain Training and Super Mario Galaxy, generated £129.83m in revenue for the company – up almost 200 per cent year-on-year.

Glad to see anybody taking EA down since I am not a big fan of EA but not a huge fan of Nintendo these day either. But you can't win 'em all.
