Copenhagen, Denmark-based Nordisk Games has acquired a 40% share of Spacelords developer MercurySteam, which is based out of Madrid, Spain. The deal comes after "a sizeable investment" by Nordisk, according to a press release.

In addition to Spacelords, which it develops and publishes, MercurySteam has also developed Metroid: Samus Returns for the 3DS, as well as Clive Barker's Jericho and the Castlevania: Lords of Shadow trilogy. Nordisk Games, a division of Nordisk Film, has invested in several game studios over the years, including Heroes & Generals developer Reto-Moto in 2017 and others.

As part of the announcement, MercurySteam said that it has "new titles are in the pipeline," which is probably a good thing. Spacelords, which was renamed two years ago, seems to have a minimal player base on Steam, and while it is available on other platforms, it would probably behoove the developer to come up with something new.
