Nintendo has plans to make another video game movie, but it shouldn't be one of the big ones just yet. Why not start with something new, like Splatoon?
Splatoon would be an interesting choice, but I would love to see a Legend of Zelda film.
Are you sure you don't want another Spider-Man film, MR JAMESON?!
I'd definitely watch
Splatoon would be a bad, first choice. Nintendo needs to do a Metroid film. ;)
Metroid would also be a bad first choice. But the original Xenoblade? Now THAT'S a story that would be interesting to see as a full feature film. @ Metallox Maybe a bit, in some places. But that's true for a lot of movies and shows that still somehow manage to be good. Plus, I'd like to see what kinds of battles and party interactions they'd put into the areas of the game where cut-scenes don't cover the traveling done. Like during the Satorl Marsh portion of the journey. Can you imagine how beautiful it would look to see day turn to night in that area, with full CGI supporting it, as the party bunks down for the night with the rest of the Nopon camp? That would be absolutely magical, and it could be a bonding opportunity for Sharla and Reyn.
They really need an original story perhaps set in the world.
Don't you think that Xenoblade's story is a bit too melodramatic?
Luigi's Mansion or Maybe just a mad Nintendo all stars film similar to Toy Story
I'm in the minority but I would rather a Wonderful 101 movie instead
*joins you in the minority*
*Plops down in the same circle as you two* I'm ashamed that I didn't think of that first, honestly.XD
*happily runs up dragging chair from other table and joins conversation* Yeah! WonderBlue!
*Arrives too late but makes a new circle and joins to the minority*
As long as i has a good plot and the doesn't stay to a narrative. The reason why video game movies are bad is for this reason.
No, they should do something with recognition, and a story that can't be easily screwed up. Since Splatoon doesn't even have a real story it's out. They either need to do Zelda, probably Ocarina of Time since it's among the most well known video games of all time, plus has a narrative that could be condensed in to a two hour movie, or Mario. Based on one of the RPG games, I'd like to see one based off of Mario RPG (SNES) or Paper Mario TTYD (GCN) keeping in mind that they could keep the story but not the paper theme for the ladder, they could also probably pull of a movie based on one of the games from the Mario and Luigi RPG series. These are pretty much the best options they'd have for a first movie, since they have broader appeal and fanbase than just about any other Nintendo series. Don't get me wrong I'd love a Xenoblade, EarthBound, or Kid Icarus movie as much as the next guy, but Nintendo needs a few successful movies under their belt to make it happen, there was a time when I would have loved to see a Metroid movie too and that would have the recognition to work, but seeing as it went poorly when they tried it with Other M I don't think they should do that either. Mario, and Zelda seem like the safest way to start and I imagine one of those two will be first if Nintendo has any idea what they're doing.
Whatever it is, I'm sure the plot is going to as bad as Other M's.
The place to start would be with their most iconic franchise, Super Mario (animated of course). Most Nintendo properties, if made into movies would need to be animated the only ones that could work live action would be Zelda, Metroid, and Xenoblade.
