      Nintendo tried to buy Bamco ages ago, but got cucked out by the Jap courts blocking the acquisition. They're not gonna try again.

        Even putting that aside, the game just looked so empty and lifeless last we saw it. There's no way that game is going to take off, especially for a new IP. The fact they keep delaying it is likely raising the costs a lot as well.

    Way too much of a burden. Nintendo would mainly want Creative Business Unit II and its IPs, and I'm not sure how they'd negotiate that kind of deal. That's not even getting into non-video game content Square Enix owns right now.

        Hey, if it works, it works. Though I wonder how much extra Sony will have to pay to keep developers from leaving. Sony paid 2.4 billion for Bungie, and an addition 1.2 billion to keep them from quitting. Square's market cap is around 5 billion, so a 12 billion buyout doesn't sound unreasonable. Add an additional 4-5 billion to keep employee retention and suddenly Square doesn't really seem that worth anymore.

    Nintendo doesnt buy anybody unless its somebody very close. They didnt buy Rare, they didnt buy Cing, they didnt buy Alphadream, they sure as hell will never buy anybody huge like Capcom, Bamco or Squeenix, but they will buy someone smaller and already developed a relationship like Next Level Games. That's just how their mind works, they dont believe in buying studios unless they feel like it.

    they're unlikely to sell, and while nintendo could afford where sony couldn't they wouldn't get much out of it since the vast majority of the company still involved in video games is oriented around high-spec upper tier development or mobile live service. they do very little that's relevant to nintendo's nvidia tablet route and would probably just fuck off elsewhere rather than try to re-orient themselves, so they'd need to just trash most of the company and make the purchase worthless beyond an IP back catalog that they'd also continue to sit on.
