Xenoblade dev forming second studio

We all know of Monolith Software, right? Nintendo-owned developer behind Xenosaga games, made cool RPGs for the Wii that we were told won’t come to the states but actually might? Well it seems they’re doing alright for themselves, because they’re opening up a brand new second studio.

Word comes from a translation of their recruitment page that mentions the new studio. The reason for the new studio is apparently an effort to “expand its partnership with Nintendo.” Makes sense, since it’s located in Nintendo’s hometown of Kyoto.¬†Should also be useful in the creation of that Wii U title they’re working on, perhaps?
