It finally happened. The doomsayers were right. The signs were aligning for a long time. We just failed to see them. The Mayan Apocalypse was averted, the Pope resigned, high and low temperature records were broken, a meteor fell in Russia, Star Wars and Star Trek have the same director. It has all led to this. SEGA has bought Nintendo!!!! I repeat SEGA has bought Nintendo!!!!

According to SEGA Sammy Holdings Inc. CEO, Hajime Satomi, SEGA bought the flailing company for a mere $4.1 billion. Nintendo was able to fool stockholders for a long time by misrepresenting their profits in order to inflate the company’s buyout price to $8 billion. However, SEGA’s finance department saw through the ruse. They were able to buy the company for the stated price and are now in the process of restructuring.

There are many questions left to be answered, as of right now. What will happen to Nintendo’s top executives: Miyamoto-san, Iwata-san, Reggie? Will everything be branded under the SEGA name or will they keep the Nintendo name in order to publish the, originally, Nintendo franchises? Will we see both companies’ mascots in each other’s games (Mario & Sonic Winter Olympics, anyone)? Will SEGA pull Nintendo out of the hardware business? Will we see a sequel to F-Zero GX? Hopefully, some of these questions will be answered today and during the following weeks.

I knew I should have killed Kris sooner.

I blame myself. Time for Seppuku I guess. Where's my Master Sword?

An ETERNAL CHAMPIONS SEQUEL must be on its way now that SEGA has the manpower to deliver on the expectations.
Praise be to this news.

Oh man this is hilarious my cousin's friend just called me to say he was shocked for a moment over the Smash Brothers turning into Sonic Brothers thing until he realized it as April Fool's. So we were talking a bit and he was like "What do you think is going to happen to Nintendo now that Sega bought them out?" I thought he was goofing around but it became clear to me that HE THOUGHT THAT PART WAS REAL. He must have only read the Smash Brothers article and since it was written as if Sega buying Nintendo was a fact he didn't question that part of it!

LMAO.

@Zero

For some reason I picture your cousin's friend as that weiner kid Milhouse.
