Nintendo Invests $100 Million in Mystery Acquisition

Nintendo in investing over $100 million in what appears to be a new piece of technology, according to research analyst David Gibson.

Gibson posted the following message on Twitter, highlighting the fact that the aforementioned acquisition is currently shrouded in mystery.
 

Nintendo president Satoru Iwata has made it known that Nintendo is going to expand beyond just video games, as the company moves forward. In fact, just a few months back, he revealed plans to launch a new pillar for the company, centered around a "Quality of Life" platform. Could this be what the $100 million investment is all about?

What do you think Nintendo is investing in? New gaming hardware? A QOL platform? I sure hope it's the former, as Wii U is basically beyond hope at this point.
