Nintendo of Europe has today announced that they will be closing its headquarters in Großostheim, Germany, with business moving to its Frankfurt offices and resulting in the loss of 130 jobs, Eurogamer (via Polygon) is reporting.

A statement was provided to Eurogamer stating that the company is taking part in consultation process "on a number of changes" to improve its European business. This includes closing the headquarters in Großostheim and "outsourcing and reorganizing" unspecified operations.

"These intended measures have not been made lightly and have only been arrived at after thorough analysis and careful consideration," the spokesperson said. "The intended measures will sadly have a direct effect on some of the employees based in the Großostheim and Frankfurt offices in Germany and would lead to the release of approximately 130 permanent employees.

"Nintendo of Europe is committed to a fair consultation process with the local Works Council in Germany with the objective of providing clarity and support for all affected employees as soon as possible."

Nintendo will once again be at E3 this year, though with the more unique digital presence instead of the traditional public conference. This includes the rather large Smash Bros. invitational, a E3 Treehouse event and Nintendo Directs showing off unannounced and upcoming Wii U and 3DS games.
