Nintendo acquired Next Level Games, the developer of Luigi’s Mansion 3.
The cost is undisclosed as the deal was conducted privately between the current directors and staff shareholders. However, it may be possible to learn the cost of acquisition from Nintendo’s financial figures for the beginning of next February.
According to the statement made by Nintendo, when the agreement is completed on March 1, 2021, the Canadian game studio will be wholly owned by Nintendo.
Next Level Games is the studio behind several titles like Mario Strikers, Mario Strikers Charged, and Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon. Luigi’s Mansion 3, the company’s latest game, was released on Nintendo Switch in October 2019. It became one of Nintendo’s best-selling games, selling 7.38 million copies worldwide in a short time.
Nintendo has secured its services in the future by purchasing the studio behind this successful game. The studio joined Retro Studios based in Austin, Texas as the second Nintendo studio in North America.
Completion of the Acquisition will serve to secure the availability of NLG development resources for Nintendo, including development expertise, as well as facilitate an anticipated improvement in development speed and quality by enabling closer communication and exchange of staff with the Nintendo development team.
