1-UP Studio Inc. (1-UPスタジオ株式会社), formerly Brownie Brown Inc. (株式会社ブラウニー・ブラウン), 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.

History[edit]

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.
