Nintendo Entertainment Planning and Development Production Group 1 is one of the 11 production groups in Nintendo Entertainment Planning and Development, headed by Hitoshi Yamagami. It originally was one of the four production groups of Nintendo Software Planning and Development. Like SPD1, this group absorbed many employees from Nintendo R&D1, but this group is mainly involved with external game development with Takehiro Izushi being its original head.

The group is primarily responsible for working with third party developers based in Japan to develop their games up to Nintendo's standards. EPD1 has worked with companies such as Intelligent Systems, Mistwalker, Ganbarion, syn Sophia and many others. EPD12 is also responsible for overseeing the Xenoblade, Fire Emblem and Pokemon series franchises for Nintendo.
