Nintendo Entertainment Analysis & Development, commonly shortened to Nintendo EAD, is a division of Nintendo and is the largest of all of Nintendo's divisions. Famous developers Shigeru Miyamoto and Takashi Tezuka serve as the heads of the EAD division, with varying degrees of involvement in each title developed. The Chief Production Officer is Satoru Iwata. They are best known for work on the Mario, The Legend of Zelda, Star Fox, F-Zero, and Pikmin franchises.

In 2004 Nintendo underwent a corporate restructuring, in which several members of the Nintendo Research & Development 1 and Nintendo Research & Development 2 were reassigned under the EAD banner. Nintendo EAD is itself split into five separate teams in Kyoto who work concurrently on different projects in addition to a sister group in Tokyo.
