Maybe that Megaman movie is a start of this?

To be honest, I'm STILL waiting on a proper Classic/X anime.

I'm watching you all. Always watching.

They always complain about their movies getting trashed by outsiders so they better pull out something good with this.

I hate to be Mr. Doom And Gloom, but I need to say this: If they do a Metroid movie, there WILL be massive bitching about Samus's character.  They know it, I know it, the Rippers crapping on the roof know it.

F-Zero movie WOULD be awesome.

If they tackle a full length Mario movie I hope it's some sort of origin story.
I believe that would be a Yoshi's Island movie.

I don't know, between reboots and whining about sequels, there are a million and one origin stories in Hollywood of characters that I already know; it gets tiresome.  It could work if it's a series that didn't previously emphasize its story, though.  Or if it's Zelda, since the heroes are constantly getting reincarnated anyway.

I meant like how Mario came to the Mushroom Kingdom and got aquainted with Peach.

But yeah I think Metroid may be low on the list, though definitely not as low as F-Zero even though both are awesome.

I don't know I think Mario, Zelda or Star Fox would be the best places to start in this.  A Pikmin movie would be cool too.....though seeing all those little Pikmin ghosts on the big screen is going to be horrifying because we all know there's going to be a massive wipe out.

Hell I can see them doing a Wonderful 101 or Splatoon movie too.

Hmm, I know.

Only if Platinum would be on board in overseeing development of the movie.

Yeah that's true, in that case it would probably be later on then.

Um, they're going to [sonic slicer] no matter the movie, character, etc. because gamers are unpleasable assholes.

Now THAT would be an awesome movie.

Point taken.  But the general bitching applies to the movie's writing and not necessarily to the specific character.

To be fair I doubt Nintendo would let Sakamoto touch doing the story telling of a Metroid Movie considering the backlash and how he made things worse with the voice direction he gave the English Actress.

But yeah I'd be so down with a Kid Icarus movie, especially if we get someone as hammy as Hades or Pyron.

EDIT: In fact it seems Sakamoto doesn't want to return the Metroid franchise from some of the things I'm reading to refresh my memory.  Poor guy.

Nintendo probably wouldn't have much to do with a Megaman movie since that's owned by Capcom.
