Live Tech Games, is one of the multiple businesses selected by ITV's Studios 55 Ventures arm, an initiative the company launched in September to seek out businesses to invest in.


ITV will now invest an undisclosed sum in Live Tech Games and work with the studio to develop Roshambo Live into a game show that can either work as a standalone programme or one that extends an existing one.


The pilot will focus on giving ITV viewers the chance to play along with a live televised tournament, rather than the ones currently hosted entirely in-game.

Nintendo makes a rare move to acquire, the Vancouver-based Next Level Games.

Next Level Games is most notably responsible for Switch title Luigi’s Mansion 3, which launched at the end of October 2019.


The title sold well globally, especially in the US, and while it doesn’t quite make the Nintendo’s own top 10 all-time best selling Switch titles, with 7.83m copies sold globally it comes in a very close 11th place (and in a lot less time than some titles proceeding it).


The deal between the current owner-directors and staff shareholders was conducted privately, so the cost of the acquisition is undisclosed. Although it may be possible to ascertain it from Nintendo’s next round of financial figures in early February.
