Buy Capcom and make my Street Fighter vs Nintendo. THAT IS ALL.

Put a fair chunk into RnD for the next generation, expand the marketing division, make that second dev team at Retro a reality, market the Wii U, aquire/build some new AAA studios (both western and Japanese), rebuild third-party relations…. and Majoras Mask 3D.

If a company does really become available, they should consider buying it up. Like they should’ve done with Atlus. <_< Oh well, as long as Atlus does what they always do, I don’t really care, but I digress. I think that they should continue doing what they’re doing really. They should also focus on third party exclusives a bit more. But what would be really cool would be if they actually tried to get exclusive/early content for multiplatform games like Sony with Destiny or Microsoft with Call of Duty.

Continue to make improvements with WiiU and try to get some of the AAA ports to WiiU, like KINGDOM HEARTS 3 and FINAL FANTASY XV as well as a TALES.

It’s a firm belief of mine that you must spend money in order to make money, and it is no different with Nintendo. The company cannot simply sit on its money and collect interest, as that is not an avenue for success. After making so much money from the Wii/DS era, it is time to make some investments during hard times. After all, that money doesn’t really matter if it’s not being spent.

So, I think Nintendo should first buy Capcom. Sure, it’s a billion dollars, but the IPs over the long term will pay for themselves, especially for all the exclusives they’ll earn. Then, they should buy Atlus from Sega. Lastly, fund a lot of new IP exclusives, in order to build for the future.

Sure, they may spend 1-2 billion now, but it’ll pay off in the long run!

1) Buy Capcom

2) Make a new Megaman and advertise the crap out of it

3) Market exclusive Third-Party releases like Bayonetta 2 and Xenoblade Chronicles X to boost sales

4) Use boosted sales to make, Third-party developers like EA and Ubisoft come crawling back to the Wii U.

5) Buy every major video games producer

6) Take every game ever and port it over to the Wii U

7) Release new games in popular franchises such as COD and Assassins Creed exclusive to Wii U

Buy Capcom. You invest to reap rewards. Capcom is a gold mine of refined and unrefined gems.

Help market Fast Neo from Shin’ En and Project cars for the WiiU ( It is the most sort after of this multiplat ) meaning you convert motor sport and car lovers to your WiiU.

Secondly invest in advertising for Smash Bros U and 3DS, then release the sleeper hit MH4 Ultimate with great advertising as well.

Purchase Platinum games.

Invest in a drip account that brings in money no matter how slow; give the tree house a game to make. We all know NOA needs stuff to do as well.

Advertise the Monolith Soft 3DS project to the max also.

The first thing Nintendo should do is give me a Grant. $50,000 would do and an All expensives paid trip to E3 2015 where I could brainstorm with them a few game ideas I’ve had on my mind.

Then, they should go and purchase a 55 percent stake in Capcom. Nintendo wouldn’t own them outright but own enough that they’d get some exclusives every few years.

3rd, go and make an Exclusive offer to the Crytek folks for a 3 to 5 game Deal. Definitely bring them in on the Starfox game project since they’ve expressed interest in hiring outside help in Developing the game. Bring in some of the Platinum Games people as well.

Enter into an agreement with the Precursor people in order to bring the Eternal Darkness sequel to the Wii U.

Definitely bring Wario Land: Shake It 2 to Wii U (couldn’t resist with that photo).

Talk to XSeed, Marvelous, NisMerica (spling?!) on bringing a few more RPGs to the Wii U or 3DS.

And fund both Prey 2 and ensure a version of Fallout 4 arrives on Wii U. Maybe see a Prison headed Luigi in a Cutscene during Prey 2- Death Stare and ALL.

-David K

Buy Capcom, Bandai Namco, Sega, Square Enix and Sony. So basically Nintendo should just whip out a huge ass significant paycheck and buy all rights to all of these companies and their franchises. and say bye-bye to Playstation. and then just make it Nintendo V.S Microsoft
If only Sony, Sega, Bandai Namco and Square Enix were poor enough to be bought by Nintendo. 
Nintendo would win against Microsoft insanely by seperating all eastern games from Xbox.

-ServantOfGoddessHylia

I like the buy Sega and Bandai Namco part, though let Sony exist so as Nintendo has competition. Competition breeds innovation ala Mario Kart 8.
