    They've worked with anime before, and it was wonderful. I loved the Kid Icarus short with Palutena (see image) in the hot tub cooking vegetables. Please make more of those.

    I hope we see some awesome anime or cartoon Nintendo properties. As Gahars said, an updated darker Captain N reboot would be awesome!

    They won't license porn movies... I hope. I wonder how much business they could do if they did do this... :unsure:
    If they do, then it better be actually related to the game series. Dinohattan... :wacko:

    Official Nintendo Hentai confirmed?
    ...also Nintendo licensed, designer drugs?
    Blue(Blueberry), Red(Cherry or Strawberry), and Green(Watermelon) Potion Energy Drinks?
    Super-Mushroom breath mints? (Yuck!)
    Officially Licensed Master Sword Replica (Please?)
    Iwatta, and Myamoto Bobble-Heads?
    Nintendo Trading Cards (If they did that, they would have gone back to their true roots!)
    The (rather potentially stupid) possibilities are endless!

    Just wondering, how does this differ from the likes of Rovio? I remember them being hated for doing pretty much the same as Nintendo now.. :unsure:

    Technically it's canon to the film because the writers worked with one of the film's writers. It's only just starting out but there's going to be one page a week approx.

    Personally, I'd love to see a CG Mario film. A 90-minute Super Mario Galaxy cutscene would be epic. With real voice acting, of course.

    yeah just when you think nintenDOH cant make any worse decisions and drive this once great company into the ground

    i think we all know how this all ends......





    personally i think they should go the disney route NINTENDO THEME PARKS, think of it, how awesome would that be
    their characters are now more recognizable than disney characters a disney world quality theme park or parks with game theme areas/lands
    convention centers to showcase high tech future consoles or prototype consumer testing/research area open to the public , VR attractions based on the most popular franchises , a poke battle interactive game/ride/arena attraction ,
    think of the awesome concessions they could have like something served out of collectible 1 up mushroom shaped plastic container containers that play the 1up sound when you eat or drink out of it or red mushroom that plays the get big sound

    they could have the mario peach castle or yrule zelda castle in one park or 2 parks with one in each like disney has the cinderella castle

    a haunted mansion - haunted boo house

    a mario waterpark area with waterslides that look like those famous green pipes
    mario kart go karts ,for real
    endless possibilities[/quote][/quote]

    They were going to authorize a Metroid movie, but after the disaster with the Mario Brothers movie, they wanted artistic control and needed to flesh out Samus's character before they could really work with a studio.

    Unfortunately, their attempt to do so, Other M, was not very well received so I suspect that idea is delayed indefinitely for the time being.

    I think Zelda or Metroid could make a great movie, but Nintendo has to be very careful. Other M showed that they might actually need to get some good writers to develop Samus in future story-driven games and a potential big screen production.
