Former Nintendo of America head returns to the industry

The former VP of corporate affairs at Nintendo of America has returned to the game industry, joining Massachusetts based outfit 38 Studios.

Trade site Gamasutra reports that Denise Kaigler, who left Nintendo in November 2009 to work closer to home, has now been appointed chief marketing officer for 38 Studios.

38 Studios, a privately-held group, purchased developer Big Huge Games from THQ back in May 2009. That acquisition included Big Huge’s proprietary IP, tools, technology, assets and works-in-progress.

It was announced in March that Electronic Arts will be publishing 38 Studios first video game, an “epic single-player role-playing game” codenamed 'Project Mercury'.

38 Studios is based in New England – the same region where Kaigler lives.
