Ryan Parreno - There's a lot of speculation going around that Nintendo just might buy Atlus. Although there has been no official statement from either company on the matter, some evidence of a close connection has lead fans to believe that this could be a very big possibility.
Most people are linking to the arguments from the International Digital Times article. As it points out, the developer has been making games for all three console companies, and in fact does a lot of good business with Playstation, but he focused on their recently cozy relationship with Nintendo. Atlus has done well with both niche Japanese RPGs (Shin Megami Tensei) and more casual games (Trauma Center) for the console, and they are currently doing heavy promotion for Shin Megami Tensei IV. More importantly, Nintendo has an investment with them for upcoming crossover Shin Megami Tensei IV x Fire Emblem.
