Exploration of animated series and movies could be the next phase of evolution for video game company, Nintendo, after the business announced an agreement to purchase 100% of visual content studio, Dynamo Pictures. 

Dynamo Pictures will become a wholly owned subsidiary of Nintendo and be renamed Nintendo Pictures.  

The acquisition is set to close in October, bringing a new arm to the global business responsible for the planning and production of visual content, “including CG animation” the report specifies.
