    I know rumors have been circulating about Nintendo buying Capcom, but I noticed something last night that pretty much confirms it for me.
    I was playing "The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past/4 Swords" on the GBA and noticed that before the title screen, both the logos for Nintendo AND Capcom appear.
    Am I overlooking something obvious? I don't think Capcom had a hand in the original SNES version, but maybe I'm wrong. Does it have anything to do with the 4 Swords portion? Anyone else notice this? [​IMG]

    Capcom did the GBC Zelda games, and I believe they had a hand in the LTTP port because of it. No grand conspiracy behind it, I believe.

    I believe Capcom did the 4 Swords portion of the game which, in my mind, clearly denotes a very close working relationship between the two.
    Then again, if the 'big five' and Capcom's past work on the GBC Zelda games didn't amply illustrate this, I don't know what would [​IMG]

    Maybe Namco working on StarFox GC and Sega working on F-Zero GC means Nintendo bought all 3 companies!

    I'm pretty sure you were being sarcastic Morgan, but as I recall Namco, Sega, and Nintendo all went in on the Triforce arcade board.

    At least I think it was Sega... I can't recall now for sure.

    I was kidding, and I think you're right about that.
