Hi I've seen you before on the Fandom wiki (though I last edited there a really long time ago and didn't make many edits). ^^ Thanks for your help here! From Evie (Torchickens) ✿ 22:10, 5 November 2022 (UTC)
DC Super Hero Girls: Teen Power
First off, do you have a source that Nintendo EPD produced the game?
Second, just because Nintendo published or produced a game doesn't necessarily mean it is first or second-party.
For example, a bunch of Tetris games were developed and published by Nintendo, but they're still considered third-party games because Nintendo doesn't own the IP, only the license to the IP.
Even disregarding that, the copyright info for the game has no mention of Nintendo anywhere. For clarification, here is said info, taken from both the North American and Japanese websites for the game:
"DC Super Hero Girls: Teen Power © 2021 DC and WBEI.
DC LOGO, DC SUPER HERO GIRLS and all related characters and elements © & ™ DC and WBEI. (s21)"
And given the game is based entirely on a pre-existing television series that features characters from DC Comics (a subsidiary of Warner Bros. Discovery; WarnerMedia at the time of the game's release), it's pretty safe to say DC Super Hero Girls: Teen Power is a third-party game, no matter how much Nintendo was involved in it.

The proof Nintendo produced the game (besides that it is developed by a Japanese developer that doesn't really do work-for-hire) is in the game's credits.  The producer on the game is Toyokazu Nonaka, who is one of the heads of Nintendo EPD Group 2 along with Project Management by Yuji Ichijo (coordinator of most of Nintendo's recent western collaborations) and Supervision by Yoshinori Tsuchiyama and Nobuo Matsumiya. If the wiki's standard on first party is whether Nintendo owns the core IP, then it is fine to mark it as such. My opinion on whether a game is first-party or third-party but published by Nintendo is whether Nintendo produced the game. I thought that was the generally agreed upon definition, if we ignore the messy definition for second party. This game is probably like Bayonetta or Goldeneye 007 in how Nintendo owns the actual game but, the based on property is owned by another company versus the reverse in the case of Mario + Rabbids or Cadence of Hyrule Astrogamer (talk) 19:42, 25 February 2023 (UTC)
