Next Level games Announces that they will Work Exclusively with Nintendo Next-Level-Games_zps3f85d8d4

Based in Vancouver British Columbia Next Level Games was founded in 2002, for its work they have been featured in Maclean’s Magazine and named one of Canada’s top 100 employers. Although they have developed titles for other platforms it’s their titles developed for Nintendo Consoles (Mario Strikers Charged, Punch Out, Luigi's Mansion Dark moon) for which have received high acclaim.

In an Interview with Gamasurtra Next Level Games Co-Founder Jason Carr and Luigi’s Mansion Dark Moon Producer Ken Yeeloy stated that they had reached a deal with Nintendo to become a Second party Developer. When asked the question “Have you thought about working with anybody else?” Jason Carr stated…

“We have worked with a lot of other companies before, and we're super happy with our relationship with Nintendo. There's no reason to look anywhere else. They keep giving us better and better IP to work with, and as long as we do our job and make good games for them there's no reason for us to venture out.

Because we're still a small shop. We're under 70 people. We like that size. For us, we're like, why would you want to go and talk with these other guys? What's it doing for your business? The guys in the company are just really, really proud of the company and proud of the games they work on.”

As a Second party Developer Next Level Games will be able to take Development Contracts from Nintendo while still being able to maintain their independence. With this arrangement the games they develop with be exclusive to Nintendo platforms. Game freak is a good example of another one of Nintendo’s Second party Developers.

Before become a Developer for Nintendo Next Level games made great games, now with the resources and backing of a gaming giant we can expect them to make even better titles than before.  Here’s to a good long partnership between these two.

Nintendo needs more second party developers now that almost every third party has left. This is a good start.
Next Level games are fantastic developers so this is welcome news to hear Smile
Im excited to see what games they are going to develop.
Punch-out!! U, Strikers U, or something new they are one of the few western game companies I like. (Retro, Monster of course as well)
I'm hoping for a new IP for the Wii U myself, preferably not a platformer since the Wii U already has a ton of games in that genre. Wink
Woo! More second-party support for the win! cheers
