Nintendo has acquired a new developer – here’s what it means for Switch owners

It’s not often Nintendo splashes the cash to purchase a new developer or studio – big acquisitions are usually left to the likes of Microsoft, who recently purchased Bethesda in a deal costing $7.5 billion. However, the Kyoto-based company has decided to expand its portfolio with the acquisition of Next Level Games.

Nintendo Switch owners might recognize Next Level Games as the developer behind Luigi’s Mansion 3, but the Canadian company has also worked on previous Nintendo systems over the years, such as on the Nintendo GameCube with Super Mario Strikers, Punch Out!! on the Wii, and Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon on Nintendo 3DS.
