Douglas Tronsgard, who is the president of Next Level Games, the Nintendo studio behind Luigi’s Mansion 3 and the beloved Mario Strikers games, has announced that he will be retiring from the company. Next Level Games is currently hard at work developing Mario Strikers Battle League for the Nintendo Switch family of systems and it is set to be released worldwide on 10th June. Next Level Games was originally founded in 2002 and was acquired by Nintendo in January 2021.
Thanks to Greatsong1 for the news tip!
Mmmm I wonder who will take his place as president in the company.
I can’t believe you guys never posted the news about Snow Bros. Special, coming this year to Switch. Even after I messaged you about it around 2 weeks ago. Which for me was the most exciting Nintendo news I’ve heard in a LONG time.
Good for him. Just as long as Next Level immediately starts on Luigi’s Mansion 4 immediately after Super Strikers is complete.
wait…you are not complaing about the lack of interest on punch out sequel, are you feeling well?
SHUT UP already geezus!
Hope the best for Tronsgard.
And you are welcome for the news tip Sickr. :)
After the “arguing” about Luigi’s Mansion 3, I bet Nintendo wants a Japanese boss there to see it is done the way THEY want. I bet this is the whole reason for the purchase to replace the president there. Just speculation ofc.
I don’t see how that would work unless if they try to move their headquarters to Japan. If they try to appoint a Japanese president they will eventually become accustomed to the Canadian culture.
What are you referring to exactly?
