Monolith Soft is a first party Nintendo developer purchased by Nintendo in 2007. Prior to the buyout, Namco Bandai owned a majority of the company. Originally Nintendo only purchased 80% of Namco Bandai's 96%, but in 2011 they bought out the rest. Company President Hirohide Suigara and lead designers Tetsuya Takahashi and Yasuyuki Honne each also own a limited number of shares.
In 2011, Nintendo expanded Monolith Soft, and created a smaller branch of the company in Kyoto, so that they could work more closely with Nintendo. Yasuyuki Honne was made head of this branch, and their first game was Animal Crossing: New Leaf, which was released in Japan on November 8, 2012. Outside of co-developing Nintendo software, Monolith Soft Kyoto is also creating original software for Nintendo systems.
