Nintendo's New Redmond HQ is Rather Spiffing

Posted by James Newton

But they won't let you see inside

Nintendo's Seattle HQ has been doing them proud for years now, but you know they love to tinker with a good thing. Their new headquarters, built next to their old building, is less of a slight upgrade and more of a next-generation revelation, though.

With an energy-efficient data centre, recharging stations for electric vehicles and 75,000 square feet of plants covering the roof, Nintendo's clearly aiming to reduce its environmental impact. Don't worry: there's plenty of game-related nods inside, with the main conference room called the Master Sword and the building divided into colour-coded segments Mario, Yoshi, Donkey Kong and Wario.

Although predictably there are no photos of the inside due to Nintendo's strict security rules, these exterior shots should be enough to satiate your desire to know what Nintendo's new domain looks like.

There's no canteen. You just stand infront of the fountain, play Zelda's Lullaby, and then a Great Fairy restores your energy.

@Pegasus: With that big oil spill off the Gulf Coast, I don't see why they would give up on electric vehicles ;)

They planted grass.
You would think they'd plant a beautiful garden on the roof for relaxing in, but grass?
