I hope someone comes around and just money bags Capcom because muh megaman. Even if it's just a small glimpse of hope I'll take it over nothing.

Nintendo is a likely buyer, I'd like to say, but I honestly don't know. I mean, imagine if Nintendo got Megaman, more than they already have him. He could become a PERMANENT MEMBER of Smash?

Can Nintendo even afford Capcom? Surely the 3DS's money-printing efforts have caused significant inflation.

Nintendo can afford anything. Doesn't mean they'll buy it, there's no point in having Capcom ips exclusive to them. They'd just end up wasting money developing RE7 when the problem still lies that their hardware drives third parties away.

If anyone where to buy Capcom my money would be on a non-gaming company to get into the mobile scene.

Nintendo would probably fit Capcom but honestly I see it being the big ol' sweaty arseholes of gaming that is lesser known as EA.

heres hoping re7 goes back to survival-horror, you know, survival and horror.

the size of chris redfields biceps are directly proportional to how sucky a RE will be.

Nintendo buying Capcom can be good for Megaman, but it's bad for the other franchises.

For other Capcom games like Street Fighter, I think it'll be like what happened when Nickelodeon bought the rights to Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, make it more appealing to children. The same for Resident Evil and Devil May Cry.

I like Megaman, Street Fighter and Nintendo, but I think that Nintendo is better with Megaman, than Street Fighter.

You HAVE seen that they're also the ones that backed RE4, Bayonetta 2, and The Devil's Third, and allowed Conker's Bad Fur Day with significantly less censorship than the microsoft rerelease, right?

Nintendo may not get into that themselves, but they don't force the kid gloves on developers.

It would be great to see Nintendo do it, although there would probably be much gnashing of teeth from some gamers when Street Fight suddenly became Wii U exclusive, but this:

would be the more likely scenario.

This is good news for me, because I prefer Pokemon and Super Mario. I don't know about Takeover Defense

If I was any good at programming flash games, I would totally make "Takeover Defense" now.

Good news is that japanese stocks can't be bought by foreign companies, so at least EA, Activision, Ubisoft, and Microsoft or even worse, a chinese gaming company like Tencent can't buy them out.

wouldn't it be funny if Mighty No.9 made so much money that Keiji Inafune could afford to buy Capcom? I think it would be funny, and ironic.
