What if Nintendo BOUGHT Square back in the SNES days???

Like if they bought the company and it became a 2nd party AAA Nintendo developer?

Imagine how awesome it would have been *_*

But Square would be an entirely different company if that had happened. There is no telling what it would be like now, or if it were to even exist.

First thing that comes to mind is a Super Mario RPG sequel. I wonder if that would have ever become something big.

They never would've become the horrible company they are today.

nintendo should purchase the niche ips they aren't using.

then we'll finally have a divi/sequel to Drakengard or Nier

edit: who owns the rights at the moment? SE or AQ?

Well for one thing FF games would have looked worse on the N64 or Gamecube and would have had worse quality music for like ff7.

Kingdom Hearts probably wouldn't exist.

Dragon Quest Viii would have been on gamecube and maybe we would have gotten more good Mana games and jrpgs.

Love this part, I wish that series would just end already. It has become an absolute mess plotline wise with so many overarching stories and what have you. I say have SE make KH3 and conclude the series with a bang.

No it probably would have been awful, Final Fantasy 7 would have been a trainwreck
