Marigul was a company created and jointly owned by Nintendo (40%) and Japanese company Recruit (60%). Its name is a combination of Mario and Seegul (Recruit's corporate mascot). Although Marigul was liquidated in May, 2003, Ambrella and Noise continue to make games.
Marigul was founded because the Nintendo 64 was not getting enough third-party support. Marigul would let game studios focus on making a game by taking care of the financial end of things. The only condition was that they would have a game ready in five years.
Many of Marigul's games have not been localized or released in North America.
