Sega / Nintendo Joint Rumors Quashed

by October 31, 2000

Earlier, we reported that Sega and Nintendo would be forming a joint company of some sort. Now, it appears such a concept is no longer a reality.From IGN Dreamcast:

Famitsu.com has actually printed a moderately clearer version of the story, and it involves no such joint company. The story should read that Sega, in an effort to further its networking plans, has invited Satoshi Kayama, director at Marigul Management, to act as an advisor. Apparently, Mr. Kayama has worked with the likes of Tetsuya Komuro and Nintendo in the past, but there’s no connection between Sega, Nintendo and Komuro.
