Nintendo Says It Wants To Make Anime For Its Biggest Franchises

Nintendo’s 77th Annual General Meeting of Shareholders took place last night and we covered a few notable things that were mentioned. Interestingly, Nintendo president Tatsumi Kimishima and Shigeru Miyamoto both said that they are looking invest into film and would like to made anime for its large franchises and distribute it freely, or integrate it into games.

President Tatsumi Kimishima stated in a question involving Kirby anime and others: “We’ll look into investing toward film” with Shigeru Miyamoto adding “We want to make anime for Pikmin, Star Fox, Yoshi, etc. and distribute it freely, or integrate into games.”



    1. Hopefully not, fire emblem doesn’t really seem all that entertaining…. Just tropes and dry humor. Hopefully it’s kid icarus, Zelda (no link talk -navi can speak for him-) or Mario. Hopefully it’s kid icarus

        I’ll fully support Link talking if it’s not that cheesy crap that others did when giving Link a voice. It’s time someone shows that Link talking can be a great thing if done right.

  1. If they do an anime of their franchise it will be good.

    I saw few episoded of Kirby’s anime but is a good anime personally. That anime gives you some really good tips on how to live in real life.


  2. a smash anime would do well and rasie ratings on tv and I know I`m not a minority when it comes to this would, also be great if we can get an animsl crossing reboot anime but in new leaf style, after all they did get a movie but it was only for japan.But hey a yoshi,pikmin, and fire eblem anime sounds great

      1. I think what we want is to see NEW characters on the boob tube instead of old faces like Marth.

        I think most of us are tired of him at this point.

  3. Kirby, F-Zero, and Fire Emblem have all had anime series, and Kid Icarus had I think 2 or 3 anime shorts, so this sounds entirely plausible. Personally, I want to see Splatoon anime- what the Inklings do when they’re not mimicking gang warfare, the inner circle of the Octarians, the lives of Inkopolis’s shopkeepers like Jelonzo and Crusty Sean…

    I want a Legend of Zelda, Metroid, Fire Emblem, & Star Fox anime. I want to see Link fucking talk, too, so we can see it done right instead of the trash we got from the CD-i & Nintendo cartoons from back in the day.
