Nintendo probably won’t buy out any major game companies

While Microsoft and Sony look to take on it in an acquisition war, Nintendo will make the best move possible for Nintendo: ignore the competition and stick with publishing its first-party games. only me.

Last November, Nintendo President Shuntaro Furukawa told investors that the Japanese company plans to spend about 100 billion yen on itself, investing in its own developers. With Microsoft looking to buy Activision Blizzard for $68.7 billion and Sony acquires Bungie for $3.6 billionFurukawa told investors in a presentation Thursday that Nintendo’s plans won’t change, Bloomberg reported.

“Our brand is built on products created with the dedication of our employees, and having a large number of non-Nintendo DNA owners on our team would not be a problem,” Furukawa said. is a plus for the company,” Furukawa said.

However, the president also said that he was not entirely against the acquisition. For example, just last year Nintendo acquires Next Level Gamesback studio Luigi’s Mansion 3. But that acquisition only came after the Vancouver-based studio spent a decade building games for Nintendo.

Serkan Toto, a Tokyo-based consultant, also told Bloomberg he doesn’t see Nintendo jumping into the acquisition. “It’s really hard for me to figure out which of the big ones they might even want to buy,” he said. “Nintendo will always stay at Nintendo. The company has always relied on first-party games, and I don’t see any reason why they should change.”

While Nintendo’s philosophy can always change in the future, it’s probably safe to remove “Nintendo buy Square Enix” from your 2022 videogame buyback Bingo card.
