Brownie Brown is now 1-UP Studio
The folks at the Nintendo owned studio Brownie Brown (of Mother 3 fame) have announced the company is currently undergoing a few changes. One of which is the changing of its rather peculiar name. So let us all say good bye to Brownie Brown and give a warm welcome to 1-UP Studio!
I know, but that's something
That was made by Tokyo development group #2 of Nintendo EAD with some assistance by Brownie Brown. They did not actually make the game.
Jack shit? What about Mario 3D Land? That made them more money than they ever had before probably.
Exiting news. Brownie Brown has pretty much done jack shit since Mother and most of those didn't even come to the west and so its good they are getting restructured as it means they are finally going to do something. I love the studio and so this is, to me, kind of like someone saying "the F-zero development team was restructured to better suit Nintendos needs". In other words the announcement itself is secondary to the implied announcement: 1-up studios is going to be working on some games shortly and I am exited about that!
