Nd Cube Co., Ltd is a Nintendo research and development subsidiary, founded in 2000. They are currently known for developing many of the later entries in the Mario Party series. The company is currently headed by Hidetoshi Endo, the former president of Hudson Soft. The "Nd" comes from the original founders of the company, Nintendo and Dentsu (the capital "N" indicating Nintendo's majority ownership) and.

History

In 2000, Nintendo and Dentsu founded Nd Cube as part of a joint venture, Nintendo owning 78% of the company's shares while Dentsu owned 13.3% of shares, the other 8.9% being undecided.

By April 2006, many of Nd Cube's employees had moved on to join other developers, primarily Nintendo and Square Enix, after Nintendo rejected the company's experimental projects. In that time, they posted job ads for Wii and Nintendo DS development. At a later point, many former employees from Hudson Soft, including core Mario Party staff and former president Hidetoshi Endo, joined Nd Cube.

In August 2010, Nintendo bought all of Dentsu's shares, becoming the sole owner with 98% of the company's shares.
