It's being claimed that Nintendo could be one of the companies lining up for publisher Atlus as its parent company gets set to offload it from its books.
Sources at the International Digital Times suggests that the close relationship between Atlus and Nintendo makes the Japanese giant the company most likely to bid.
“The single most likely bidder for Atlus in the Atlus bankruptcy case is Nintendo. As a matter of fact, I’d like to suggest that a Nintendo-led acquisition of Atlus may actually have been in the works for some time.
“That’s because Nintendo has been working unusually closely with Atlus lately, treating them practically like an in-house studio. That may be because Atlus is about to become one.”
