For a long time, we've known Nintendo as one of the greatest father in inventions of the video games. It was in 1980 when Nintendo introduce the Game & Watch as the very first video game console, even in handheld. While the family console got the Nintendo Entertainment System (NES). But now, in the modern ages, we see how Nintendo are now in the up and downs! Mostly, because of the Wii-U's mediocre results in the sales, Nintendo was forced to finish it's production this year since 2012 they introduce it, although the life-span and online support continues for both this and the 3DS, which it's the only console that succeed. So, knowing that Nintendo it's facing the problems, what's the solution for them in order to avoid get a downfall like Sega? Making movies!
Yup, you heard me well, and this ain't April Fools, it's for real. Nintendo, for the longest time, to think they'll never make their fans' dream come true, they're finally about to hit the big screen, it's movie time with Nintendo!
From this interview with Asashi Jimbun, the actual director of the company Tatsumi Kimishima: qz.com/685071/nintendo-is-seri…
The director comfirmed that Nintendo it's looking forward for movie business. Specifically, they're planning to do anime type, rathern than live action, consider that the anime would be more beneficial, especially, since we can see the characters in cartoony style, just imagine that!
In addition, Nintendo's also looking foward to make these movies not only be avaible in Japan, but also in overseas, so this means, the World shall get the oportunity when these moves come out!
However, the director state it that this business shall take at least 1 or 2 years, which means, 2017 would possibly the year that Nintendo would begin the work.
Now then, here are my opinions about this amazing news, I add:
Since Star Fox Zero: Battle begins, I always thought this was Nintendo perfect chance to begin the animation business, and boy, was I right there?
I mean it, this is great! Think about, Mario Bros, Donkey Kong, The Legend of Zelda, and even Fire Emblem, in big screens! This is everyone's dream come true, we're finally see it's happening! Especially, since they're interested to localize those future movies overseas, it'll good times! (As long as, of course, the dub does it right with no dissapointments)
Even Fire Emblem could return to the animation again, since their short time anime of Fire Emblem Shadow Dragon that occur in 1997 (Shame that only last 2 episodes), with the movie business, imagine see the story of Awakening and Fates again in animation style!
Just like Tales of Symphonia: The animation that Ufotable developed based on one of Namco's best tittle of the Tales series, it'll be amazing see our favorite characters in action, comedy, humor and much much more!
And best of all, Nintendo would be in charge of it. Which means, we won't be dissapointed like what happened when we have that horrible Super Mario Bros movie back in 1993, when the movie was panned by critics, for the terrible setting, plot, design, everything! Not even that horrible Zelda cartoon with: "Excuse me, princess!", NO, this time, it's for real! It's Nintendo, NOT Dic, Nintendo! The same company shall make it right!
What great news, isn't it? Cannot wait to see Star Fox in big screens, it'll be amazing! What do you guys think about this great news? Leave your opinions here, feel free!
