Nintendo has purchased Next Level Games the team behind Luigi’s Mansion 3

Nintendo has announced this morning that they have purchased Canadian partner Next Level Games. The team were behind Luigi’s Mansion 3, Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon, Super Mario Strikers and more. It seemed inevitable given the success of their games, particularly Luigi’s Mansion 3 for the Switch. Congratulations to both Nintendo and Next Level Games!

  1. Nice to have a developer located where I live that works for Nintendo. Great job! I absolutely love the games they’ve made for the Big N, especially Punch-Out for Wii.
    I do wonder how copyright works for some of the games that weren’t for Nintendo though, such as Spider-Man: Friend or Foe.

    1. The game was licensed by Activision, so Activision likely holds the rights to Spider-Man: Friend or Foe.

      The same thing would go for any of the licensed games. Whoever owns the licenses will own the properties. Next Level just developed, or helped develop, the games. They won’t own them outright.

    Great choice.

  3. It’s been a while since Nintendo bought a company into their fold which is probably another indicator of how well they are doing at the moment. Next Level have done good work and seem to be getting better if Luigi’s Mansion 3 is anything to go by so with even closer support from Nintendo their next game should be something special.

    1. Platinum releases games on other platforms. Not sure Nintendo will go the MS route and continue publishing games on competing platforms.

  4. I guess it only makes sense. They’ve been working closely together for quite a while now, and it only makes sense for Nintendo to secure a few non-Japanese developers, since they have really few of those.

    Still kinda surprised that Nintendo never decided to acquire AlphaDream, though.

  5. I’m glad they finally did just that! :)

    p.s. The only problem is that Next Level Games won’t able to make games for their own, only but to make games on Nintendo’s behalf.
