"Our look at Nintendo’s studios is nearly complete. We have looked at their internal teams, their first-party subsidiaries, and their second-party partnerships. Now, we are going to examine their third-party collaborations. Over the years, Nintendo has partnered up with many different companies and, if recent claims are to be believed, it seems that they will be joining up with even more.
However, this article will not be some wishlist of what partnerships I hope come to fruition; rather, it will look at the studios they have collaborated with in the past to discover if they might do so again — and if so, how. Also, do keep in mind that this is not a look at how these companies are currently supporting Nintendo, but rather, how they have joined forces for publishing and developing games."
