I am a big Nintendo fan and have been my entire life. I don't think or want Nintendo to ever quit gaming, but I had a thought, if they did, which companies would get which IP's?

Let's make it into a game!

Super Mario (includes DK & Wario)-
Legend of Zelda-
Metroid-
Excite-
Animal Crossing-
EarthBound-
F-Zero-
Fire Emblem-
Kirby-
Kid Icarus-
Pikmin-
Punch Out-
Star Fox-
Pokemon-
Golden Sun-

Anyone that isn't Capcom, EA, Activision or Microsoft.

In a realistic scenario, no one. Nintendo has said before that their IPs will die with them.

I have to think about who would actually buy them if they were up for sale, though.

This would never happen in the foreseeable future so its hard to even guess. If this ever did happen Samsung could be making video game systems for all we know.
