Nintendo should buy Capcom.

Yes. They are actively trying to become a publisher now, with buying back Wonderful 101 from Nintendo and publishing themselves and that GAAS game about giant robots being their first Big Games as a publisher.

So, as of now, Platinum is a big no no for acquisition from anyone, really.

Or they going publisher route could backfire on them and make they in need for cash and make opening to be bought by nintendo.

Yeah, I do agree with the decent chance of this happening. What I refered to is any kind of acquisition happening ( regarding Platinum) for the next 3 years simply not happening because of this.



My (locked) thread about how difficulty should be a decision for the developers, not the gamers.

I would love Platinum to be under the Ninty banner and I'm not joking. I want Ninty to lock them in for games like Bayonetta and Astral Chain. Maybe even something like Scalebound down the line.

yeah, I was only semi-joking because I do like them remaining independent, but I have said before I do absolutely think that if Platinum Games were to ever be acquired by anyone the best option would be Nintendo since it seems like they have the best relationship out of all of them, with them funding four of their games, giving kamiya his dream to work on a star fox game, and even letting them take back publishing rights to TW101

it would be a win-win for everyone, platinum gets all the funding to do whatever crazy shit they want and financial security w/ more resources for the games to only get better and it fills a genre Nintendo typically don't fill themselves or get much of on their platforms. i'm sure Nintendo views them as a valuable partner at this point given how they keep going back to work w them so i'd hope that if it ever came to that they would at least offer.

As much as I would love to see Nintendo buy Platinum (and give them a kick in the arse to stop fucking around and actually make Bayonetta 3) I can't see it happening as they seem pretty insistent on being free to hop into bed with multiple parties. (Nintendo, Square, Sega, MS, Activision, and Cygames, and Konami all at various points)

Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023.

RIP Alphadream though, thats another company nintendo should have bought...

They doomed themselves with focusing too much on ports of old games in the waning years of the 3DS (when people weren't buying as many games for it). I hope M&L lives as I love the series, but that was poor management by a company that should have been focused on new content for 3DS and Switch.

This is what I'm thinking. They haven't had a lot of successes outside of Nier. Definitely not to sustain self publishing. I think they'll realize how much it cost to make a game without a publisher and still market it.

The problem with Alpha Dream is they had a lot of outstanding debt, so Nintendo would have had to pay that off to get them. Their only claim to fame was a Mario spin off that wasn't doing too well. Nintendo did post job ads soon after, so I wouldn't be surprised if they tried to poach the talent at least.

PG doesn't own Bayonetta. SEGA does. Scalebound while originally developed as a Wii game, is a Microsoft-owned IP now.
