Saudia Arabia's trying to expand to the entertainment industry which includes video games.

To fund more war crimes no doubt.

Since we can't buy any of our favorite games without supporting shit stains like Saudi Arabia then we might as well do whatever the fuck we want regardless of consequences.

This decade has proven that nothing we do matters, because heartless tyrants control our favorite games, endangered species are dropping like flies, rampant disease is everywhere, and soon sea levels will be high enough to drown most of us. If a big fucking asteroid hit the Earth I wouldn't be surprised at all.

Goodbye optimism, hello accepting that the world is a doomed ball of shit and nothing will change that. To think Sucky Assrapia buying into Nintendo so they could turn Samus into a man and put Peach in a burka is what it took for me to see that.

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.

Well with how the Saudis are gonna run things with SNK there's no way it's networth is gonna be even close to $4.75 billion. Nobody wants to buy a King of Fighters game where all the women are in burkas and accept domestic abuse while apologizing to their abusive husbands.

At this rate, why not just release Advance Wars?

Not enough money talking loudly to Nintendo about that.



SNK is tiny. It's not really comparable to Nintendo.

But it still has one of the most popular fighting games under it's belt, and the go too fighting game sex symbol Mai Shiranui. You honestly think Saudi Arabia is gonna keep her around despite being one of the franchise's biggest selling points? Saudi Arabia loves making money, but last I checked they love repressing the female form even more, so guess Mai's going bye bye.
