Nintendo fans have been asking the company to buy out Capcom for quite some time, and while it’s still a pipe dream, it’s not just raving fans with a blind wish; Nintendo actually has all the reason to buy them out.

Capcom has dozens of franchises that would do well to bring Nintendo out of their downward-trending console sales, and franchises like
Street Fighter, Resident Evil, and Devil May Cry would help Nintendo shed the “kiddie” reputation they have among so many gamers—and more importantly, among third-party developers.

This is what we discuss in the second half of this week’s episode of Nintendo Week, our Nintendo-centric podcast here at Gamnesia. We just uploaded the discussion video to YouTube, so give it a watch above if you’d like to learn more about why Nintendo X Capcom is truly OTP.

I first played Donkey Kong Country before even turning three years old, and have since grown into an avid gamer and passionate Nintendo fan. I started working at Zelda Informer in August 2012, and helped found Gamnesia, which launched on February 1, 2013. Outside of the journalism game, I'm an invested musician who loves arranging music from video games and other media. If you care to follow my endeavors, you can check out my channel here: http://youtube.com/user/pokemoneinstein I was rummaging through some things a while back and found my first grade report card. My teacher said, "Oddly enough, Colin doesn't like to write unless it's about computers or computer-type games. In his journal he likes to write about what level he is on in 'Mario Land,' but he doesn't often write about much else." I was pretty amused, given where I am today. Also I have a dog, and he's a pretty cool guy. I don't care for elephants much. I suppose they're okay. You've read plenty now; carry on.
