While we impatiently wait for a Nintendo Direct (and that Super Nintendo World sweepstakes happening next week), I have made a realization looking at the Nine Month Earnings presentation material, and yes, it’s about the ”motion picture project” I’ve been obsessed with.
No where in the presentation does it state that the movie Nintendo is making with Universal and Illumination is still based on the Super Mario franchise. This has me thinking the project has evolved to include other Nintendo IP as well. Then again, my speculation could be totally incorrect, and the film is solely based on Mario.
Whatever the case may be, we will not know for a long time. Not even the inevitable failure of the movie will happen for another 2 years! All we can do is wait. Until then, what do you all think?
