Not to rain on your pessimism parade but by Japanese regulations of the market, foreign investors have almost basically no seat and say at the tables for whatever Nintendo does. Nintendo themselves owns more than 51% of their stocks and if SA were to owning up to 10% or more, there could be an investigation by Japanese market authorities.

Basically, there way more more protective than what you see elsewhere

So before you commit to anymore fallacy you can rest assure about your video game purity remaining as it is.

Then why wasn't there an investigation when Saudi Arabia bought even more into SNK? The answer is, again, money talks louder than all else.

That's just how things are.

SNK were near bankruptcy and have been for decades the acquisition of SNK would pass as a bail out Nintendo on the other hand is worth $95b and in a slecet bracket of corps that has significant influence so it would be classed as an attempted take over which regulators scrutinize in any country like Nvidia's attempt at buying Arm, for reference SNK were worth about $63.5m while 5% of Nintendo is $4.75b.
