5% isn't enough to tell Nintendo what to do in any meaningful way, they could make suggestions but Nintendo doesn't have to do shit, I dislike that they acquired the stake as I hate the Saudi regime but in terms of what they can do to Nintendo, not much at all and if they tried to make Nintendo do something, Nintendo would tell them to bugger off, they'll be protected by the Japanese government.
As for acquiring Nintendo, absolutely zero chance, Japan would block it and even in the crazy scenario that they didn't, Nintendo would cost $75bn+ with a 40% premium but it's frigging Nintendo, their premium will likely be higher than 40%, now I don't know how rich this investment fund is but I doubt they'll want to blow a huge chunk of their cash on Nintendo, Lol. Not that Nintendo wouldn't be a wicked investment to anyone but I don't think they want to put all chips into one company.
It's just them desperately trying to find another source of income because they know the oil won't last forever so they're leeching off the world in other ways, I.E. buying minority stakes in successful companies, I doubt they have any interest in controlling these companies, they just need that secondary cash flow.
