Monolith Soft, Incorporated (MLSI) (株式会社モノリスソフト Kabushiki-Gaisha Monorisu Sofuto?) is a Japanese entertainment company that produces video games. The company was founded in October 1, 1999 by producer Hirohide Sugiura after he left Square Co. and accepted an investment from Namco.[1] As of May 6, 2007, Nintendo owns controlling interest in the company after Namco Bandai sold 80% of its 96% stake in Monolith Soft to Nintendo. This went into effect May 1, 2007.[2] It is now a first-party developer for Nintendo.

The company announced on July 8, 2011 that they were opening up an additional studio in Kyoto, Japan.[3]

Monolith Soft is usually associated with the Xenosaga series, a series of role-playing games on PlayStation 2. Some of MLSI's staff are former employees of Square Co., who transferred to the new company after the creation of Chrono Cross. They were previously involved with the creation of Xenogears, from which the Xenosaga series is derived.
