      1. LOL real actors… Just the thought of that made me spit my drink out.

        I think that would be a better fit for a Broadway musical. lol…

    1. Ridley 2 Big 4 Smash? More Like 2 Big 4 U Wiiklings 2 Control! Leave Him 2 The Masters!

      Give me a Legend of Zelda movie by Nintendo themselves & I’ll be a very happy man. Least they won’t fuck it up with cheesy lines if they get a serious anime director involved.

        1. I just use my email to post, I have too many accounts from so many different websites. I get tired of making new ones for every site I visit.

          I don’t ever plan on using wordpress and I’m not making an account with them just to make comments.


          1. Oh I see. So it’s not possible to like posts unless you have a WordPress. I thought that as long as you sign in, in any form, you can like posts.

            It’s really quick and easy to make one though if you’re ever up to it lol

  1. This might seem rather immature of me but i cant help but giggle at the name “Tuculo”. Its translates to: “Your ass” in spanish. XD

    Anyways back to the topic, i would like to see these shorts. Looking forward to them. =)

  2. Steven Quarts Universe

    I don’t know why they can’t make movies for their games yet…
    DreamWorks- metroid
    Pixar- Mario
    Disney Animation- Zelda
    Sony Animation- Starfox
    Studio Ghibli- Pikmin
    Blue Sky- Kid Icarus or Donkey Kong

        1. Nintendo is my Blood Reborn

          We cannot trust anyone especially our biggest rival, Sony, to make a film of a Nintendo character.

          We trusted that once to Philips and we all know how that turned out…

        2. because he is a retarded nintendo fanboy, and he hates sony and microsoft because they are also in the console war. pretty simple. he’s an imbecile

          1. Console War is a phrase that social rejects (Aka, Fanboys) like to uses to get attention. Well congrates, you got my attention, here’s a trophy for the most retarded twat on the internet. Though you’ll have to wait in line because Xbox One Daily and PS4 Daily have to collect their awards too.

  3. Pikmin the Movie?… This better be awesome and either Claymation or CGI because I want this to be the best Nintendo game movie ever :3

  4. A Pikmin movie would be adorable if they did it right. I’d definitely wanna see either claymation or 2d. I guess cg could work, but the games are already in cg, y’know? I’d rather see something different.

  5. So he’s taking time away from making games that use the GamePad to make short films? Depending on just how much time and effort he is putting into these, don’t you think there needs to be a shift in priorities given how much he can do to help the console?

  6. Pikmin is my favorite franchise I hope they make a Pikmin 4 like Pikmin 2 was. It was stupid to put less enemies on Pikmin 3. Also stupid for not making underground tunnels. Stupid for not thinking of online play during the time of Pikmin 3 development. Also stupid for making the characters needing to survive on food yet on Pikmin 1&2 they didn’t.

  7. Pikmin movie? Interesting. I wonder how many years it will be before we hear about a Pikmin 4? Pikmin 3 was good, but it was too short. But I didn’t like the whole fruit collecting concept, as opposed to treasure collecting. Collecting treasure (and real life products) was SO much more interesting than just nothing but fruit. I hope Pikmin 4 brings the treasure collecting back.

  8. Ridley 2 Big 4 Smash? More Like 2 Big 4 U Wiiklings 2 Control! Leave Him 2 The Masters!

    Cool. I look forward to this. I’d rather get a Zelda movie BY Nintendo themselves. Just keep the guys involved with the CDi or Legend of Zelda cartoon from the late 80s/early 90s far, FAR away from it.

    1. Ridley 2 Big 4 Smash? More Like 2 Big 4 U Wiiklings 2 Control! Leave Him 2 The Masters!

      Oh & with a Zelda movie, they could test the waters for a talking Link. Least if the movie sucks, it won’t tarnish the games by Nintendo.
