After several announcements followed by Purchases of Studies by Microsoft and Sony, Nintendo has positioned himself before his investors: he has no intention of following the rhythm and acquiring new studies at the moment.
“Our brand has been built through products created with dedication by our employees, and having a large number of people who do not have” Nintendo DNA “would not be good for the company,” explained the head of the company, Shhuntaro Furukawa, In a videoconference with investors translated by Bloomberg.
In recent years, Nintendo has only bought external developers occasionally, and never at the same speed as Sony and Microsoft have presented in recent years.
The most recent acquisition of Nintendo was a year ago, in January 2021, and had to do with the Canadian developer Next Level Games, who had created Luigi’s Mansion 3.
Last week, Sony announced the purchase of Bungie, the developer of Destiny, the sixth study that buys from the beginning of 2021.
On the other hand, in January, Microsoft announced its Activision Blizzard purchase plans.
