Luigi's Mansion dev pledges exclusivity to Nintendo

Next Level Games, most recently responsible for Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon, will work exclusively on Nintendo games. "We are doing only Nintendo products now," studio co-founder Jason Carr said in a statement.

Working with Nintendo exclusively isn't a huge surprise coming from the studio, which has worked on a number of first-party games, including Super Mario Strikers and Punch-Out. However, the studio has dabbled in non-Nintendo work, including the multi-platform Captain America: Super Soldier for Xbox 360 and PS3.

"There are a lot of benefits to working with a first party," Carr told Gamasutra when explaining the studio's move to exclusivity. "Nintendo's great. They give you the time to make the games good."
