Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Can Nintendo Investors make NIntendo acquire a studio?

All Nintendo needs to do is outsource any of their dormant IPs, and boom another exclusive for the Switch. Nintendo already has developers, and while more is never a bad thing, they don't really need to make that jump. Besides MS and Nintendo have been pretty buddy buddy lately, so I don't see how anything MS does is a direct shot at Nintendo anyway.

And let's not forget that Nintendo reaches some age groups that Sony and Microsoft do not reach with their consoles,that part of the market they have secured with the nature of most their ip's and the image of the Nintendo brand in general.

Funny because well over half of the Switch userbase tends to be over the age of 18, with the vast majority being 19-35.  That kind of speaks volumes about who their IPs really appeal to, with kids being in the minority.  Just because a game is acceptable for a kid to play =/= mean kids are the main demographic.  That kind of thought belongs in another thread that was made recently.

Besides most kids play Fortnite, Minecraft, sports games, or CoD in my experience.  All of which, can be played on other devices.

You are responding with something i always agreed with so i hope you are aware and are just adding on the information?

I DO think that children playing Nintendo games plays a big role in them still playing Nintendo games as an adult, and that's a good advantage.

Call it me being annoyed by a particular narrative and making a snap response at 5am after waking up to start, and now it is added info...XD

Understandable, mornings mostly make me come of slightly edgy because i make more automatic responses.

Great for work,less for being social :P

I have a question ? I think investors pushed Nintendo to make games for mobile when Nintendo said they would never do it but finally did , Can investors push Nintendo to make studio acquisitions too?

Kind of, but not really.

Something like the acquiring a company is usually done by the Board and management. Shareholders select the Board of Directors but they can't necessarily compel to do something specific. They can oust them if they feel like they are doing a bad jobs. So if Nintendo wasn't acquiring companies but shareholders wanted them to, they could get rid of them. However, they can't say who they must acquire.
