  • ‪‪Nintendo Eyeing ‪Filmmaking‬‬

The latest scoop is that Nintendo’s Super Mario Brothers are to return to the silver screen. A film on this topic will be an interesting thing to watch with eyes wide open.

Nintendo is looking beyond its borders. It had its heyday in the 80s with video games that included Donkey Kong and Super Mario Brothers. Yet now it wants to cash in on other forms of merchandise such as a film or two on the topic.

While the nitty gritty on this is still a covert fact, something is brewing deep within the heart of the popular video game empire. A mega blockbuster movie may lie in the cards for the franchise, according to Japanese website Asahi Shimbun (via Engadget).

The plans that are in the making include employing its fun-filled colorful characters for movies. These films were supposed to have appeared by 2015. That didn’t happen.

Yet where there is smoke, there is fire. Film-making is one of the future trends towards which Nintendo wants to project its feelers. The projects in the pipeline may include 3D animation.

The self-growth that the enterprise wants to engage in may hold a lot of profits for it in the near future. Ramifications beyond the world of gaming are a lucrative bonanza for Nintendo.

It is a channel that is not only new but full of resources that will rejuvenate the company. It’s a sure thing that its coffers will not be empty any longer. Nintendo is a Japanese brand. Its peak and prime was in the 80s, that greedy and progressive decade when everyone looked out for #1 and things had not reached the crisis levels of the nihilistic 90s.

The President of Nintendo, Tatsumi Kimishima, said in a newspaper interview that the giant firm was planning on thinking outside of the box. To expand its domain was the priority which Nintendo was concentrating on right now.

The 1993 movie titled Super Mario Brothers was a flop. So this time it is hoped that things will be luckier and better for the organization. Animation is likely to play a major role in the movie this time around.

The company is willing to sell some investments it has made in other fields in order to finance the making of this anime movie. Fans of the video games are eager to view the movie that Nintendo comes out with. Nintendo also has a brand new console titled NX all set to come out in 2017.
