Welcome to Nintendo Software Technology (NST)

NST is a tight-knit game development studio located in Redmond, WA. As part of the Nintendo family, we’re passionate about creating games designed to surprise and delight our customers.

We’re always on the lookout for exceptional talent in design, art, sound, and software engineering.
