You kinda contradict yourself. If they put very little budget on their not well recognized franchises then they are being very conservative on avoid risk.
Certainly I can agree that Nintendo makes more varied titles than most if not all Japanese developers. Still Capcom and Sega aren't limited to the 2 IPs each you have put.
But yes, we can agree with the premisse you put on general terms.
Yeah but when you see Sega doesn't wanna fund Bayonetta 2 and rather pay for another shitty Sonic game that almost no one even want or care, you realize they aren't always good risk takers.
In fact, the Bayonetta case is a good point for the thread
