Based in Germany, Nintendo of Europe will be combining their Großostheim and Frankfurt facilities, by moving to Frankfurt and cutting around 130 jobs.
The news comes just before E3 where Nintendo are due to give an online 90-minute long presentation to hype up Super Smash Bros. and more.
It is unclear whether this is related to the pay cuts top Nintendo Japan bosses took to atone for the shortcomings of 3DS sales. The cuts were due to last for five months, so it is certainly coincidental timing.
It is also unclear whether the offices and warehouse at Großostheim will have any leftover Nintendo merchandise when they are sold, as some videogame developer offices do when they move. If so, GameGrin may move to Germany.
