Dynamo Pictures has worked with Nintendo IP’s before. They were behind the Pikmin Short Movies that released around the launch of Pikmin 3 on the Wii U and they also worked on Metroid: Other M. Some of there non-Nintendo related projects include Persona 5, Monster Hunter Stories, Monster Hunter: World, Nier Replicant, NINJA GAIDEN Σ2, and Death Stranding (and many many more).
While it remains to be seen how “Nintendo Pictures” will be utilised, the company has more than enough experience in videogames, animes, and in film that virtually anything that they work on in the near future will certainly be a winner.
