THQ's IP deal with Nintendo was snooping around and found a SEC filing dated October 12 stating, "Nintendo of America and THQ entered into a Confidential License Agreement for the Wii Console."


"The agreement grants [THQ] the right to use certain of Nintendo’s intellectual property to develop, have developed, have manufactured, advertise, market and sell videogame software for play on Wii until October 13, 2009 in all countries within the Western Hemisphere."

There were no specifics given in the document on what the project, or even the IP that’s being borrowed by THQ is. Should we be expecting Mario Wrestling? Or please oh please, Bratz: Mario edition.

When asked about the agreement, the representative from THQ insisted that this was "standard procedure and is not indicative of any new arrangements." Well damn. If she’s right, I’ll never see Mario shopping with Bratz. Something tells me THQ is holding out. Or at least I’m hoping they are.
