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.

The studio is actually developing games on Nintendo DS/Nintendo DSi, iPhone/iPod Touch and iPad
