Next-Level Games now a Nintendo second party developer

“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.”

Kudos Next-Level Games. None of the issues associated with multi-platform games and all of the benefits. Could we please be seeing the next Nintendo/Rare partnership? Before that is Microsoft threw money at them only for them to release nothing of note on either Xbox, 360 or (now) Xbox One.

poor kamiya if nintendo let him use nintendo characters for wonderful 101, it could have sold millions and Platinum Games becoming a second party developer.

Id rather there be an unsuccessful creative new ip than that personally. Does suck that people didnt buy it though.

wonder how many Next-Level's Game was going to sell if it was an original new ip with the same story and gameplay, with ghost hunting without mario characters?

People are weird and satisfying them is an unreachable goal. They bash Nintendo for using their iconic stable of characters in different game genres and ideas and yell "milking" "give us new ip", and when they introduce a new ip they say "why didn't they use their known characters in that ip"!!

Weird or What?!

Well dark moon is a sequel, if it came out as a new ip with gameplay cut and pasted from luigis mansion id be pissed. But w101 is totally new, it shouldnt take the mario crutch for the sake of sales.

To be brutally honest, this is what Next Level games needed. If you look at their back catalogue most of their games up until their partnership with Nintendo were so-so at best - they're talented coders but not the best designers so this partnership could produce some real gems.

Wow, there seems to be a lot of devs who really don't mind being attached to Nintendo... I'm gonna go and assume they like the TIME they're given to make games instead of being rushed on a schedule... that's my guess anyway.

Loved Dark Moon. Can't wait to see what these guys bring to the table next.
