Industry analysts are speculating on a possible buyout of Capcom by Nintendo. This coup d'Ã©tat would significantly improve Nintendo's position and be a logical move since the company is keen on promoting its GameCube console among adult gamers for Capcom created (mature) franchises such as Street Fighter and Resident Evil. Analysts have been expecting a major announcement from Nintendo and assume it will be made soon. The aforementioned companies declined to comment on this rumor.
