    I guarantee that Nintendo is going to simply shrug off the proposition and laugh at Disney

  • PSI Dragon

    I pray Nintendo won’t sell out to Disney. Disney is so narcissistic about the companies they own and drain it of everything that makes it special.

    No chance a Japanese company as large and important as Nintendo would ever be sold to a foreign company. I bet the Japanese government would even step in.

    I was concerned when Microsoft bought Mojang all those years ago, I was worried they'd just stop updating Minecraft altogether or make it all go behind paywalls and honestly I am so glad I was wrong. I'm not even going to pretend that I understand the logistics of companies buying companies, I just want the games I love to keep coming.

    On a related note, something not everyone is talking about is mergers. What if, instead of someone buying Sega or Capcom for example, they just fused into one company?

    i still love the fact sony saw microsoft’s acquisition and was just like “oh ok i see how it is” and then takes bungie 🤣

    Microsoft tried to buy Nintendo back then, and the response they got was a bunch of laughter. I wouldn’t be surprised if it happened again

    Didn't Disney already have their games with Nintendo? I feel like they could, but knowing Japanese culture and the "Nintendo DNA" comment, Nintendo won't sell out. There's still a culture of perfectionism/elitism/pride in Japan. Nintendo would even get offended over modders and glitch hunters because they want everything to be their own.

    The intro, the music, the editing, the theory itself, this gives off such cozy classic Game Theory vibes. it fills my heart with nostalgia. Thank you Mat!

  • The Pixel Paradox

    Not watched the whole video yet but Nintendo land is been built in universal studios in Florida. So how does that fit in with the theory because that conflicts Disneys interests......would be a massive court case would it not? Not worth the trouble for both parties. Not going happen Nintendo will laugh them out of the park literally.

  • Hawl and Sera The Shapeshifting Cyber Spider Tigress

    Nintendo's probably going to laugh right in the face of the idea of a Western Company telling them what to do.

  • TheAdvertisement

    Nintendo is like the indie game company, and while there always will be indie companies (at least, hopefully-), I doubt Nintendo will want to give up their independence, especially with how much they support indie creators themselves. Trust me, Disney ain't getting that gaming company across the ocean.

    Oh my, it’s been a while since I’ve watched Game Theory. The editing is more outstanding than ever!!

  • Christian Feliciano

    If Nintendo doesn't want to buy anyone because of their charm being ruined, I hope that also means they would want to avoid being bought out due to the same reason.

    When talking about Amazon, did he recognise Amazon offered to act as a server for Lost Ark? Seems pretty significant in that step towards IP acquisition 🤔 Pretty large game atm

  • Honor D.

    Let’s be honest. A giant company about to get bought out by an EVEN BIGGER company is WAY scarier than ANY horror game or ARG we’ve EVER come across.

    Not only does Nintendo not need more IPs you could’ve argued years ago that they already had more great IPs than they can handle and they’ve only gotten more great IPs since then they prioritize quality over quantity and they’re great at making long lasting and timeless franchises
