In the gaming community, Nintendo is often cited as "the Disney of gaming" and while that may have been true during the 90s or 80s, in 2019? The two companies couldn't be anymore different. Now yes, Nintendo and Disney share similarities. They're both known for family-friendly content, and both have an empire of well known characters in pop culture that they want to protect and look after as much as possible. That's where the similarities end however. Nintendo is a big, but not too big publicly-traded company that focuses exclusively on interactive software, accompanying hardware, and character licensing. With little experience, or even interest in anything else outside those areas. If anything, they're much more the "Sanrio of gaming". Similar to Nintendo, Sanrio (the Hello Kitty company) also specializes in creating iconic characters and selling licenses for them to willing clients for various purposes. Difference being that Sanrio is just character licensing, whereas Nintendo is also a software and hardware developer, allowing them to integrate their characters into their own homemade entertainment as well.
Disney, at least the modern Disney is a mass media conglomerate not dissimilar to that of Viacom or WarnerMedia. They have their hands in everything from film, to television, to radio, theme parks, sports, news, online entertainment, and yes, brand licensing. Disney in recent years has become (in)famous for its acquisitions. In recent times, they acquired Marvel, LucasFilm, Maker Studios, and just a few weeks ago, 20th Century Fox. With that on top of their other subsidiaries like ABC and Pixar, Disney has the largest empire of entertainment in the industry, and for some (myself included) that's a bit of a problem. The Disney of today is no longer just the family-oriented entertainment company that mainly stuck to film and TV, now it's just yet another faceless, emotionless, mass media entity that owns way more than it really should.
I don't see Nintendo making acquisitions of comic book companies, or acquiring other, equally large game publishers, or being involved directly in TV, News, or Film divisions. TBH, Sony is much closer to a Disney than Nintendo is, considering the division behind PlayStation, Sony Interactive Entertainment, is just one of many autonomous subsidiaries the Sony Corporation owns.
