Nintendo considering Merging or Aquisition

Quote:
This week has a seen quite a lot of Nintendo news. On the positive side of things, we know that Mario Kart is coming in May and Super Smash Bros. is confirmed for this year. On the flip side, the Wii U continues to disappoint at retail, and the company has recognized that the Gamepad isn’t being used to its fullest.

Today’s piece of the story will likely come as a surprise to many. Speaking to Japanese outlet The Nikkei, president Satoru Iwata says that he hasn’t ruled out aligning Nintendo with another company. “We should abandon old assumptions about our businesses. We are considering M&As as an option,” Iwata says. “For this reason, we'll step up share buybacks."

This explains why the company made a $1.2 billion stock buyback. The market reacted favorably to the move, as profits increased by 8.2 percent per share.

Of note in The Nikkei piece is Iwata’s response to a question about the company’s listing on the stock index. “Quarterly earnings reporting is not a good fit for Nintendo,” Iwata says. “We don't know in advance how much of a hit a product can be.”

Despite the current financial trouble, investors shouldn’t expect the company to go private. “But it is thanks to the stock market that Nintendo has grown to what it is today,” Iwata says. “I don't want to turn to a management buyout just because we are inconvenienced now.”

Given their history lately, Nintendo could easily align with Sega and fold uder the Sega Sammy Holding Co.

A Sega merger seems to be really popular when this news first came out(and having the Atlus brand would also help). Personally I kinda hope they snag Capcom

It'd be nice if they partnered with someone like Capcom. I'd like to see Retro get a say in the next Resident Evil.

What really needs to happen is a huge merger between 3-4 Japanese companies, including Nintendo. I'm thinking Nintendo, Sega, Capcom and Square-Enix. They would be a force to be reckoned with.

Ahh, a fanboy can dream though....

I'd also like to see a partnership with Capcom. With Nintendo being as strict as it is and Capcom's IPs, I can see them starting to make some quality games again and get out of this slump they're in.

^ I second this.

This news lightens up the current reports and situations. Nice to hear.
Still, I'd like to go back to just talking about gaming the way we've done in old yesteryear's. Depending on its type, too much news can get overwhelming, o.o

Wouldn't mind them merging with Capcom at all. I think it's a great idea.

That's the problem. Nintendo has not been delivering the games so there aren't many to talk about.]
