If Nintendo could buy two game companies, what should they buy?

Okay, first off, realistically, so please don't say Microsoft, Sony, SEGA, Bandai Namco, Konami, etc.

If I could choose, I'd say Level-5 and Yacht Club Games.
I think of they keep a really good relationship with Level-5, they could buy some shares in it.
I know their stock has gone up, but keeping Yo-Kai Watch as an exclusive, and other properties like Professor Layton would significantly benefit them.
On the to the other hand, Yacht Club Games has out out a great game, with a huge fanbase, and if they could have them work exclusively, it would also benefit them greatly.

Of course, knowing Nintendo, they probably won't buy anybody for a long time.

How about buying a franchise or two from Konami? That would be acceptable yes? :p Cause I'd love for Nintendo to gain ownership of the following: Suikoden, Castlevania, Megaman, & for Yami the Metal Gear franchise.

^ I definitely agree with buying IP rather than an entire company, it's cheaper and Nintendo would be able to do more with the IP than certain companies have been doing. (specifically those who are close to going bankrupt, Konami specifically as Queen mentioned, where when the company basically has been entirely dissolved their IPs are out in the open)

But if we're going by companies, I'd say Capcom and Platinum Games. Platinum especially, as they tend to experiment with all consoles quite a bit, but I feel their best work is always done when working with Nintendo. Wonderful 101 is an amazing and overwhelmingly underrated game for example, I'd love to see more stuff like that with Nintendo potentially funding it more if they own Platinum. And Capcom because they have a good relationship with Nintendo and I feel it would be interesting.

Capcom's too expensive Zero, they're in very good financial conditions.
Problem is, Nintendo doesn't really have a team that could work on Metal Gear.
I'd like to see hem buy PlatinumGames, they could handle Castlevania I'm sure.

I think they would just pay to get games on NX. So I could see Platinum next game, the next Sonic game and some Capcom  being NX only if Nintendo offers up the cash.

Opps, Megaman's owned by Capcom. I derped lol. But as for Nintendo not being able to handle Metal Gear, they can just mix Metroid with some LoZ stelth gameplay & there you go.
