    just becuase a company was great on a diferent generation doesnt make it great on the next, becuase for all we know the talent might have been gone and picked up by other studios already and only the name remained.

    Case in point Rare
    Rare was amazing on snes and n64 days, they squeezed the hell out of the n64 made it r they wanted and even more, besides them or factor 5 i dont know who made the best games tech wise on the n64.

    Then they were bought by microsoft with a console that had more than 10 times the power of the n64, most talent left and the ones that remained could even take the best that the xbox could do techwise not even close.

    sometimes companys are only good because they have certain devs that really understand said hardware and make everything they can to take advantage of it, when they are bough and people leave they turn out a bad investment in the end.

    And while i dont know the history of level5 i would bet many developers already left the company and the oens that are there are probably not very good, and their ips arent really worth the money they would charge nintendo to own them probably.

    What I meant is that the 3DS is the only platform to have the Trilogy, Apollo Justice: AA, Dual Destinies, and Spirit of Justice.
    The DS only has the first four games; the GBA the first three in Japanese only minus Rise From the Ashes; the Wii didn't get the 3DS titles; PS4, Switch and Steam only have the Trilogy.

    I don't think you understand how speculative any acquisition is.

    The rationale I have is laid out, and I could split hairs on the difference between an example company creating Nintendo games to then be bought by Microsoft and a company creating Nintendo games that stood toe-to-toe with Nintendo's own franchise to then be bought by Nintendo, but I don't see the point of elaborating further.

    I put in my 2 Cents to Nintendo with my Comment, based on what I see right now in 2021 as potential.
    That's about as simple as I can lay it out for anyone.

    For the love of god give em control of Advance Wars. Intelligent systems is too focused on fire emblem to give Wars attention. It’s been over a decade since Wars had a release, and since 2005 for a good one.

    I'm just surprised it took Nintendo that long to acquire a new studio.

    Well, hopefully this means more funding to put out more or bigger games.

    I'd take Federation Force in HD. It wasn't even a bad game. People were just butt hurt because it wasn't a mainline game.

    I don't know why Fire Emblem is milked as much as it is.. Advance Wars would be fun on the Switch.

    Came to say this. This needs to happen. They would be nintendo's third pillar (after retro studios and monolith soft).

    Nintendo isn't going to buy PlatinumGames (or at least anytime soon). Not because they (Nintendo) aren't interested, but more like PlatinumGames wanted to stay independent. PlatinumGames received huge investment from Tencent last year in order for the studio to self-publish their own future titles. It wouldn't make any sense for the studio to get bought out by anyone.

    Also, the only reason why Nintendo bought Next Level Games now because they are forced to. Next Level Games directors were planning to sell their share. If Nintendo didn't step in and buy out the studio, it would have gone to some other company.

    cool, guess they didn't want another Rare-ware style loss, at least they learnt from their mistake and are willing to put their money down on the table to bring third parties under the wing who prove their worth to them

    I know I'll probably be annoying with this, but 3DS isn't the only platform where you can play those games. There are mobile versions of Apollo Justice, Dual Destinies, Spirit of Justice and the first Investigations.

    But does it have the Trilogy? Does mobile have SoJ's "Asinine Attorney" extra (non-canon but funny) cases?

    The trilogy isn't there but if you're expecting to have all the main games in one platform, I doubt that's going to happen anyway.

    Not sure if they have those DLC's, but I'm sure both Turnabout Reclaimed and Turnabout Time Traveler (DLC's from DD and SoJ) are available.
