Nintendo of America has opened the Nintendo Treehouse Log, a new Tumblr page that will provide a rare insight to the hard work that the team does.
Many will have come to know more about the team largely from their work on the Nintendo Treehouse: Live events, but, as Bill Trinen reminds us, there is plenty that they look after behind the scenes.
That ranges from localisation, those that work directly with the development teams to provide feedback on content and features, an internal evaluation team that tracks industry trends and news, a product marketing team that spreads the word about the company’s releases, and a media lab where videos, screenshots, trailers and other assets are captured. Phew.
The Log so far has an introductory post penned by Bill Trinen and another written by Nate Bihldorff, who talks about his role at Nintendo of America and reflects on his career – looking back at when he had worked on localising Paper Mario on Nintendo 64.
“The content will offer insight into games and franchises you love, presented from a unique Treehouse perspective,” Trinen explains. “We may not cover every game or every IP, and we won’t pull the curtain all the way back, but our hope is that the Nintendo Treehouse Log will evolve into something fans will enjoy – a place where you can get details on games you’re looking forward to from a variety of different people who are excited to talk about them.”
