Apparently, Nintendo learned of the stake only from news reports, not internally. Waiting for the Big N for an official response on this.



We know the Saudi prince and alot of Saudi Arabians like to chop man leg and arms in USA since they took that USA reporter and did the cruelist thing and videotaped the american, Saudi Arabia owning 5% of Nintendo feels terrible. I will still buy Nintendo products because I'm a gamer.

5% doesn't give them any power over Nintendo, not really any need to worry.

Yes, it doesn't. Nintendo is not the type to sell majority to anyone outside of Japan. Nintendo is not easily Manipulated like SNK. I have faith in Nintendo, Hope Toyota or a Japanese bank steps in and buys 20% of Nintendo. I don't feel confortable Saudi Arabia plotting something on Capcom next after their small investment. The FTC needs to get off Microsoft and Sony balls because they are not doing anything in the way of Tencent and Saudi Arabia ultra being bad dudes and doing killings without consequences and Tencent being Chinese hating USA.

What's with the Saudi Prince investing so much into Japanese game companies? Wouldn't be surprised if we see that he purchased a 5% stake in Bandai Namco or Sega soon.

I'd have a minor heart attack if the Prince bought stake in Sega, for this year I've said Microsoft should fund most of SEGA and buy 20% of SEGA too keep monster away from the weaker AAA japanese companies and big ones I didn't know until today like Nintendo?

Glad Microsoft bought Activision before Saudi manipulated and gain even more stake shares then pulling an SNK on Activision, Hope the acquisition hurries up and FTC can't seem to look at Saudi Arabia becuase they are in the grass preying on Japanese instead of american more lately which are laughing their asses on giving the finger on FTC those Saudi arabians are smart going after non American studios lately which I love Japanese made games more than american ones.
