Recently, Nintendo will be acquiring 100% of the outstanding shares of the Vancouver-based developer, which will become a wholly-owned subsidiary of Nintendo afterward. The News come from the official acquisition notification.
The NLG (Next Level Games) has been a long-time partner for Nintendo, developing exclusive games for the Japanese gaming behemoth, including the recent Luigi’s Mansion 3 for the Nintendo Switch, Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon, and Metroid Prime: Federation Force for the Nintendo 3DS.
“[Next Level Games]’ (NLG) shares are currently held entirely by its owner-directors and employees. A number of owner-directors recently determined that the time is right for them to sell their shares, and NLG, therefore, began exploring potential sale transactions.”
“Completion of the acquisition will serve to secure the availability of NLG development recourses 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.”
