Even after Nintendo’s film flop with the “Super Mario Bros.” movie, fans have long looked forward to the idea of watching movies involving their favorite, beloved games.
Nintendo CEO and President Tatsumi Kimishima reveals through Japanese news site Asahi Shimbun that Nintendo is in the process of working with different partners in creating movies. Kimishima is aware of the immense demand for Nintendo movies and plans on including Shigeru Miyamoto in the production process, as he has worked on developing these kinds of projects before. In the article, he states that the Super Mario and Legend of Zelda series will inevitably be involved in these projects.
It will unfortunately be a long time before fans hear about any upcoming Nintendo-related movies. Aside from Super Mario and the Legend of Zelda, I think the Metroid or Star Fox series’ would make great movies. What are your thoughts on Nintendo entering the film industry?
