10 Adaptations Nintendo Pictures Should Make

Soon, Nintendo Dynamo Pictures initiated the acquisitionstudio animation and VFX becomes “Nintendo Pictures” – and just reading that name makes you dream about what the future holds. Therefore, in addition Illumination’s Mario Moviewe are listing below 10 adaptations What a new studio should do. Also, leave your dream creations in the comments.


The Zelda Anthology Series

Zelda should be the next IP to adapt right after the Mario movie – not only because of its reach, but we’ve been dreaming of a series since the rumored talks with Netflix. The fantasy world of the franchise would do very well with an anthology animated series featuring a game each season. As such, artists have the opportunity to experiment with different animation styles and story tones with each new season. Imagine how awesome: a cartoonish style for Wind Waker, then a darker one for Majora’s Mask.

Metroid live action

Metroid is one of Nintendo’s darkest and most realistic franchises. So it would be perfect for a live-action film adaptation – and Brie Larson has already expressed interest in playing Samus Aran. Referring to the inspiration behind Alien, Metroid would be a sci-fi action-horror film where Samus would face off against hostile creatures, including Metroids, on alien planets. We even dream of an epic battle between the hunter and Ridley to cap off the film.

Donkey Kong the Musical

Donkey Kong games are full of interesting characters and funny scenes. So why don’t Donkey Kong and the gang make a musical movie like a song to proclaim their love for bananas? The animated film for the big screen might even have a musical sequence for King K. Rule, where he sings and dances in his throne room in the style of Disney’s greatest tyrant to express his hatred for the gorilla.

Peach and Daisy Shoujo

In the 35+ years of the Mario series, we’ve seen little (if not almost nothing) from the perspective of Princesses Peaches and Daisy. Come to think of it, a shoujo-style anime focused on two main characters is decent. The story unfolds in the teenage years of the princesses as they prepare to become leaders of their kingdom, play sports, and at the same time develop feelings for brothers Mario and Luigi.

Crazy Race Mario Kart Movie

When you think of Mario Kart, what comes to mind is the fun chaos of racing, colorful items, and a competitive environment between Mario and his guests. Now imagine watching all this madness on the big screen in a Crazy Race style animated film. Along the way – which could be set in the classic Rainbow Road – Mario’s gang gets into accidents while trying to sabotage their rivals to gain an advantage at the finish line.

Star Fox Movie

The Mario animated film produced by Illumination will be responsible for measuring the big screen potential of the classic Nintendo franchises. If this formula works, the next project could be a Star Fox animated film that follows the epic adventures of the Star Fox team in space. Fox McCloud, Falco Lombardi, Slippy Frog, and Peppy Hare talk over the communicator, “Barrel-roll!”

F-Zero is a space western

Fans of the F-Zero franchise, which Nintendo has left behind for years, will be treated to a space western-style anime starring Captain Falcon. The production can trace the character’s origins as a bounty hunter, following his trajectory until he enters the F-Zero races. Pursuing his desire for adrenaline and competition, Captain Falcon meets charismatic and exuberant characters and faces them in intense game races. The production, including a Cowboy Bebop style, goes down well.

Fire Emblem Shonen

Fire Embem games consist of epic stories of bravery, heritage and medieval battles where you must defeat enemies and ensure the survival of your kingdom and friends. The art style of the franchise is very close to anime, so Fire Emblem would do well as a shonen. Each season follows different eras of the plot, with vivid personalities and relationships between characters reflected in moments of pause – for example, in your conversations and interactions with your squad in the Treehouses.

Kodomomuke from Animal Crossing

Well, Animal Crossing doesn’t exactly have a story, as the player is responsible for improving the village, building their house, and paying their bills. Still, it’s not hard to imagine the villagers, including Tom Nook and Isabelle, getting their own stories and daily adventures in a kodomomuke anime in the genre of educational cartoons for children featuring Hantaro. Recall that the Animal Crossing anime film was released in 2006. But with the huge success of New Horizons, a new play would retain audiences.

Epic Super Smash Bros Movie

When we try to imagine the productions that Nintendo Pictures could make, there’s nothing more epic than a conclusion that brings together the many verticals of the Cinematic Universe into one film on the big screen. The Avengers style of defeating a common enemy. Yes, I’m talking about the epic animated film Super Smash Bros., which is responsible for bringing the game’s incredible cast of characters to theaters for the first time. The story can even be played in Smash Bros Brawl’s epic story mode, Subspace Emissary. It’s hard not to dream about it, isn’t it?
