Ex-Nintendo bigwig joins 38 Studios

Denise Kaigler is set to return to the game industry. The former vice president of corporate affairs at Nintendo of America is joining 38 Studios.

According to Gamasutra, Kaigler has taken up the role of marketing officer at the Massachusetts-based outfit.

Kaigler left Nintendo in November of 2009 to work closer to home. 38 Studios is based in New England. That’s where she lives! Handy!!

38 Studios, founded by former professional ball thrower Curt Schilling, are currently working on an “epic single-player role-playing game” codenamed Project Mercury. With lead design from the man behind Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind and Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, a script by by best-selling fantasy author R. A. Salvatore and artistic direction by Spawn creator Todd McFarlane, it sounds ultra-promising.
