1-UP Studio Co., Ltd., formerly Brownie Brown Inc., is a Nintendo-funded video game developer based in Tokyo, Japan. The studio was initially founded in 2000 by former Square employees, and is best known for its collaborative efforts with Nintendo.
Brownie Brown was initially founded in June 2000 by a group of former 2D artists for Square, who left due to creative differences. Nintendo trademarked the name, which according to Brownie Brown referred to their logo: an elf known as a brownie named Brown.
In February 2013, as part of a corporate restructure and reflecting their recent collaborations with Nintendo, the company was renamed to 1-UP Studio.
