Intelligent Systems Co., Ltd is a Japanese game and hardware development group. They originally worked out of the Nintendo Kyoto Research Center in Higashiyama-ku, but in 2013 moved to a new office closer to Nintendo's headquarters. The company specializes in creating development kits for and assisting in developing Nintendo hardware, though they are also known as the developers for the Fire Emblem and Paper Mario series of games.
Intelligent Systems began with Tohru Narihiro, who was hired by Nintendo to port Famicom Disk System games to the Nintendo Entertainment System Game Pak format. The team later got into game development by assisting teams such as Nintendo R&D1 and R&D4 in creating games by hiring people to port, fix, and create software and providing development tools.
The first original games developed by Intelligent Systems, Famicom Wars and Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon and the Blade of Light, were assisted by Nintendo R&D1. The team then began to hire game development staff and became a proper video game developer for Nintendo.
In October of 2013, Intelligent Systems moved from its previous headquarters in the Nintendo Kyoto Research Center to a building closer to Nintendo's headquarters in Kyoto.
