“Over the past few years myself, Darren and Damien – with the assistance of our team of international contributors – have worked incredibly hard to position Nintendo Life as the world’s premier Nintendo-centric website,” added Nintendo Life managing director Dickens.
“We’re delighted to be working with Rupert and his dedicated team at Eurogamer, and have been hugely impressed by their knowledge, enthusiasm and expertise. We’re certain that our new partnership will flourish and enable us to grow our business over the coming years.”
