Capcom Now Open for Potential Purchase

Fingers crossed that Nintendo buys them up, it just feels like a match made in heaven... plus, Nintendo clearly seems to know what to do with Mega Man (and maybe other properties) then Capcom does, if Super Smash Bros. is any indication.

I don't think Nintendo is going to buy a dead company. But boy would that open the doors for Smash.

It's not really dead at all. There's still ungodly amounts of money in Street Fighter, Resident Evil, etc. Hell, even Mega Man would be hells of profitable if it got rebooted correctly.

No, the problem was that Capcom got too big for itself to handle and it sort of collapsed under its own weight. Nintendo would be VERY willing to buy.

The problem is...would shareholders really want Street Fighter 5 on 30 million Wii Us rather than 150 million XBox Ones and PS4s? I don't really think so, so they'd probably be iffy about it.

Eh, I don't know how business works. Everyone seems to hate Capcom right now so I just assumed it was bad. Though my personal frustration stems from the 3+ canceled Mega Man games.

I hope the sales are bad enough so that it wouldn't make a difference if they were Nintendo exclusive.
