Punch-Out!! dev behind Luigi's Mansion 2

Next Level Games gets more work.

Luigi's Mansion 2 won't be a first party title, Nintendo has confirmed. Wii Punch-Out!! studio Next Level Games is at the helm.

As revealed at a Nintendo round-table event at E3 today, Super Mario Galaxy director Yoshiaki Koizumi is taking on an advisory role for the in-development 3DS sequel.

The Canadian studio did sterling work on the 8/10-rated Punch-Out!! update, as well as the excellent Mario Strikers Charged back in 2007.

The original GameCube version of Luigi's Mansion was developed internally at Nintendo by Super Mario Kart director Hideki Konno.
