Created in 2000, Magic Pockets is an independent video game studio based in the Paris area. It is one of the largest handheld video game developers in France. The company developed more than 35 games on Nintendo's handheld systems and is now developing on Nintendo DS, iPhone and iPad.
Created in 2000 as a part of PAM Development also known as Power And Magic, the studio aimed at developing games for Nintendo handheld consoles. When Take-Two bought PAM Development in 2006, Magic Pockets leads quickly proposed to buy-back the studio.
Take-Two accepted the offer and Magic Pockets made a fresh start as an independent developer. With the great increase of the Nintendo DS software sales, the studio had the opportunity to grow rapidly from 9 employees to 30, developing 20 DS games within 4 years.
