Not all of you may understand the Japanese above, but the important bit of the text translates to, “The company plans to execute the stock acquisition in 2021/3/1 on the condition that the various conditions for the acquisition are met.

With over two decades of game development experience and a rich past of successful Nintendo titles, the prospect of Next Level Games binding ties sounds genuinely promising. In the text above, Nintendo also says, “We have decided to acquire all shares of NLG because we can expect the effect of speed and quality improvement.”

To top it off, Nintendo has made it all official on their Twitter account as well. They’ve issued an official notice that clearly states their dealing with Next Level Games.
