      Nintendo owns Monolith. They are 1st party and own Xenoblade.

      "Spurred on by Hatano's supportive attitude, Monolith Soft decided to break away from Namco Bandai to become a Nintendo subsidiary; this provided Monolith Soft creative freedom in exchange for software development exclusivity for Nintendo platforms.[10] Nintendo's purchasing of the majority of Monolith Soft's shares from Bandai Namco Holdings was publicly announced in April 2007. Nintendo became the majority shareholder of Monolith Soft with 80% of shares, while Bandai Namco retained 16% and remained as a development partner."

          Xenoblade doesn't quit fit with the general perceived Nintendo image. If I could add another studio to Nintendo's collection, it would be Platinum and the Bayonetta franchise. They need a good beat 'em up franchise, but Sega might not want to give them up though.

              Nintendo funded it, and advised them. I believe Platinum mentioned how helpful they were. Bayonetta 2 is a great game. I really wish Bayonetta 1 was as bright as 2. One really is drab in comparson. I guesd that's what I get for playing 2 before 1.
