Nintendo announced on Tuesday that it has entered into an agreement with Embracer Group AB to acquire 100% of the outstanding shares of Miami-based game developer Shiver Entertainment, Inc. and make it a wholly owned subsidiary.

Nintendo president Shuntaro Furukawa revealed on May 7 that the company will announce the successor to the Switch console within the company’s current fiscal year, which ends on March 31, 2025.

Nintendo launched the Switch console in March 2017.
