It was pretty surprising, honestly. I'd always identified them as such, but a friend pointed out that on IS' website, they call their relationship with Nintendo a "partnership." Further, in Smash Bros. copyright info, Intelligent Systems is listed - all the other companies on that list are either Nintendo, or they're simply not a first-party.

They're more second-party, like HAL. They do busy work on some games to help move production along (IS is an example of this.)

They are not "second party", Intelligent Systems is a Nintendo development team. They are a wholly owned by Nintendo and are not even remotely independent of them. They are not a contracted company, or a company associated by similar values. They're not even a company. Nintendo owns them lock, stock and barrel.

Also, there is no such thing as a second party developer.

It is a remake, not my fault you people think ports are remakes (but only on Nintendo systems)-Demondog666

I know IS is not owned by Nintendo. Wikipedia is wrong.

The worst part of this is that people would erroneously try to argue that games like Fire Emblem and Pushmo don't count for Nintendo games.
