No, they can't.
Investors didn't succeed with their continuous suggestion of Nintendo should make games for mobile either. The investors' idea was that Nintendo should make Virtual Console available on smart devices, along with new original games that were like Nintendo's handheld games. Nintendo kept insisting that such a move would only hurt Nintendo's core business in the long run, hence why they were not going to do it. While Nintendo did eventually end up making games for smartphones, their approach isn't what investors had asked of them.
The same goes for the internet gaming community who had asked the same of Nintendo as investors. But what Nintendo actually ended up doing is not what people understand as Nintendo going third party, because all the desirable Nintendo content remained exclusively on Nintendo consoles.
Back to the topic of studio acquisitions, Nintendo's standard answer to such inquiries is that there's no sense in buying up a studio when its employees at large wouldn't want to work for Nintendo. If Nintendo bought up such a studio, it would only be a matter of time until the studio bled dry of its original talent because the employees would resign over time. In other words, the part of a studio that Nintendo sees the value in is not the name or reputation of the studio, but the people behind it.
I don't mind nintendo getting some additional IPs, but then again they already ignore many of their own

Instead of seeking to convince others, we can be open to changing our own minds, and seek out information that contradicts our own steadfast point of view. Maybe it’ll turn out that those who disagree with you actually have a solid grasp of the facts. There’s a slight possibility that, after all, you’re the one who’s wrong.
