No. I will blow this entire planet up if that happens.

Foreigners have always been able to buy Japanese companies. Would be pretty strange for a load of them to be on the stock market if not!

The laws you've probably heard about I believe are for hostile takeovers, but if the company wants to sell... why shouldn't they be able to?

Yay, a fellow Total War fan. Looking forward to Warhammer 3?

Wouldn't mind an MS takeover. I prefer Sega's PC games these days, so out of the big 3 they'd definitely be the best in my book!

Please make this happen, and then put shadow the hedgehog in killer instinct

There's talk that Grasshopper hasn't been connected to Gung-ho since 2018. Both Travis Strikes Back and NMH3 are published by Grasshopper themselves.

They're a small outfit, so even if there is truth to Japanese companies not being bought by foreign entities, I doubt this extends to what is essentially an indie studio.
