1) Before we get started, you might want to read Part 1 to find out more about Iwasaki Giken Kougyou and how I think it had something to do with the formation of Nintendo subsidiary Intelligent Systems.

2) The impetus for writing this post was stumbling upon a couple of interesting copyright records for Nintendo games that mention Iwasaki.

  • Devil World [1]:

  • Vs. Soccer [2]:

Iwasaki's involvement with Soccer has been pointed out here before. Click the links for the entire record.

3) Intelligent Systems was established in December 1986, but its official website lists games released before then: Wrecking Crew, Metroid, Tennis, Duck Hunt, Devil World, Donkey Kong, Wild Gunman, Hogan's Alley, Mario Bros. If Iwasaki was involved with Devil World and Soccer, then logic dictates it may have been involved with the other games.

4) The Wikipedia entry for Intelligent Systems has a game list with notes like this one for Devil World: "Contributed programming to Nintendo EAD." I have no idea the source of this information.
