Nintendo Seal of Quality is going out on its own. The Kyoto-based company is splitting its quality control branch off into its own, separate company.

The name of this Nintendo company is the appropriately named "Mario Club".

Contract employees and part-timers will see work conditions improve, and contract employees will become full-time, full-fledged Mario Club employees. With the goal of improving quality, Mario Club will play test and check Nintendo-related titles for bugs.
