Next Level Games, the studio behind Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon and Mario Strikers Charged have told Gamasutra that they are only creating products for Nintendo now. Next Level Games Co-founder Jason Carr told the publication that the team are extremely happy focussing on Nintendo IP’s which he says are becoming bigger and better. Here’s what he had to say.
“We are doing only Nintendo products now.
“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.
“There are a lot of benefits to working with a first party. Nintendo’s great. They give you the time to make they games good. They’ve done really well — the Wii’s done really well, the DS has done really well, the Wii U is not the strongest start but we trust that they’ll come up with something to get it going, and the 3DS was a blast to work on.”
