As many suspected, Next Level Games is the developer behind the upcoming Switch release Mario Strikers: Battle League.

Nintendo didn't make any mention of this during its recent Direct announcement or the official PR, but it's now been confirmed by a rating over on the Australian Classification Board. The rating itself is 'PG' for Parental Guidance - with the game containing mild violence and online interactivity.

Next Level Games was purchased by Nintendo at the beginning of last year and is the only developer to work on the Mario Strikers series. It first started out with Super Mario Strikers (Mario Smash Football) on the GameCube in 2005, followed with Mario Strikers: Charged on the Wii in 2007, and has also worked on other series like Punch-Out!! and Luigi's Mansion.
