Disney Wants Mario To Eventually Meet Mickey Mouse

We heard earlier today about the crossover between Skylanders and Nintendo’s very own Toys to Life series, amiibo. IGN quizzed Disney Interactive vice president of production John Vignocchi about whether there’s a chance that a Disney crossover could ever happen as it’s something some fans have been hoping for. Vignocchi says that he would love for that to eventually happen, but nothing is on the cards just yet.

“Hopefully, the day Mario meets Mickey Mouse is not that far away,” Disney Interactive vice president of production John Vignocchi said in an interview.

John Blackburn, Disney Interactive’s Avalanche Software vice president and general manager, joked that the dream team will happen whenever Disney CEO Bob Iger “buys Nintendo.”

Thanks, MasterPikachu6

  1. They should probably buy Nintendo right now because I don’t know what the hell they’re doing right now. The only thing that’s doing right is 3ds and I’m happy with new 3ds but on the other hand…

      1. You’re talking out of your arse. Since Disney bought Marvel, we’ve gotten a properly funded and awesomely realised cinematic universe and the comics are still going strong. Marvel is still run by Marvel, they just have unlimited resources now.

      2. BULLSHIT! Lmao… Do you really believe that crap you just uttered?

        I absolutely LOVE MARVEL!! Always have. Always will. Now with Disney buying the rights to Marvel the movies have been good. But NOT TRUE TO COMIC BOOK FORM!!! Remember those WOLVERINE MOVIES? The 1st one was nothing more than a CHICK FLICK that could’ve debuted on “LIFETIME & OXYGEN”.

        D.C. is doing good. ESPECIALLY THOSE CARTOON STRAIGHT TO DVD & BLU RAY MOVIES!!! Marvel has become more family than ever. While D.C. is more for adults.

      3. Wolverine/X-Men movies were done and owned by Fox you moron and they’re the ones who once fucked the series with X-Men 3 and then Wolverine. Marvel themselves didn’t ruin any of their own franchise. Maybe it’s there mistake to sell off their key rights to dickheads like Fox. But they had troubles back then. Now thanks to MCU, Marvel is bigger and better than ever. D.C is alright with the cartoons in a serious note but they’re seriously going too dark toned and serious with their story that sometimes it seems it was taken too far to appease their fanbase who thinks maturity is always the best way for comics. No it’s not and sometimes it’s better to add a little fun and humor on the side. Look at Man of Steel. It split its own fanbase for that very reason with the whole darker toned Superman and destruction porn which I personally didn’t have an issue with.

        How I see it, both Marvel and DC are good in polar opposites: Marvel movies rock and DC animated rocks.

      4. OH just like it is now… Nintendo’s 2015 e3 has prove to all their loyals fans that they care more about those stupid amiibos than makong games for the wiiu.
        I feel tricked for buying the wiiu on day one… I hope that star fox zerp is awesome but even if it is i would probably never touch the nx.
        Fuck you nintendo.

    1. If Disney get Nintendo, then all the staff from Nintendo will be fired/laid off, doors will be closed, Nintendo wouldnt even exists as a name while Disney has all ip´s and then they license them for EA to develop games for. Kinda shitty future you are wishing for Nintendo.

      But yeah Nintendo has been acting clueless lately and its dissapointing but selling a company to Disney is never a solution, trust me on this one.

Nintendo will apologize, fix the problem for a few months, then go right back to failing. The day Iwata is fired will actually be a blessing… unless he’s not the only idiot at Nintendo in line to take his place.

    2. Stagnant? I guess that’s why DC is rushing their own cinematic universe so they can compete with Marvel’s. >.< Disney owning Marvel is the best thing that has ever happened to Marvel in recent years. And it could be worse. Fox, of all companies, could actually own Marvel right now. *shudders at that prospect* As for LucasFilm, it's too soon to tell on that front. Oh wait. You must have a time machine & have seen how well the Star Wars movies from Disney have done. That explains how you know LucasFilm is stagnant. *snickers*

    1. No, even though Nintendo did pretty bad this E3, this wasn’t the first time. Remember 2008 with the Wii Music and Wii Sports Resort? That was a colossal fail. Even though Nintendo messes up, they usually get back up. But this time Nintendo don’t have the fans as much as they did with the Wii. Nintendo should start catering for their fans and actually start making games what the fans want.

    2. My god. Quit over reacting. They didn’t announce any new ground-breaking games that we’ve been dying to hear about. A lot of their direct was focused on what’s already released, which was shitty and totally sucked, but even if we didn’t hear about anything new coming that’s worth while (besides Star Fox), there’s still a boat load of games coming like Xenoblade, Yoshi’s Wooly World, Zelda U, Mario Maker, tons of stuff. Just… none of it is “new”. Disney buying Nintendo is a worse fate for us all.

  4. Nintendo is just doing a lot of experimenting, nothing wrong with it but giving a mix of good and bad in the recent E3 does make people overreact.

    1. AGREED. I think a lot of the internet’s hate is just an overreaction. I am so glad someone else see’s it this way. Their E3 event was very lackluster, besides Star Fox, there was an over saturation of 3DS games, and too many old announcements everyone knew about, there was nothing “new”. but by no means is Nintendo in a bad position. In a few months, people will be lining up to buy Yoshi’s Wooly World, or Xenoblade, because it’s not like they didn’t have any games come, they just had nothing new to show off, but they always had plenty of games. And yeah, lots of experimenting. I don’t know how wise it was to use Metroid’s brand for something else, or to make an Animal Crossing party before making an actual Animal Crossing on the Wii U, but everyone makes mistakes.
