Announced this morning, Nintendo has finalized a deal to acquire Next Level Games. Next Level Games was founded in 2002 and has developed titles such as Luigi’s Mansion and Mario Strikers.
According to the official statement from Nintendo, the deal is set to close formally on March 1st.
Given both the commercial and critical success of Luigi’s Mansion 3, this seems to be a very good fit for Nintendo. It will be interesting to see what they work on next!
