Nintendo to Acquire Next Level Games

This week Nintendo announced on their investor relations page that the company will be acquiring the Next Level Games. The Canadian development studio has worked closely with Nintendo on several acclaimed titles including Super Mario Strikers (2005, GameCube), Punch-Out!! (2009, Wii), Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon (2013, Nintendo 3DS), and Luigi’s Mansion 3 ( 2019, Nintendo Switch). The studio has been working exclusively with Nintendo since 2014, making their acquisition the final step in a long partnership.

As of yet it is unknown what projects are currently in development at Next Level Games, through with the success of titles like Luigi’s Mansion 3, and fans having been clamoring for a new Punch-Out!!, it is a possibility that those titles could show up somewhere down the line.
