The Missing Link
No, I’m not talking about cartridge colours. (GameCube uses DVDs, people! They’re already silver!) I’m talking about the silver screen.
According to an issue of the Spanish Club Nintendo, Reggie Fils-Aime has supposedly confirmed an effort to create a Zelda movie while talking about the efforts under way to creating a movie based upon Metroid.
The article says “Reggie Fils-Aime (Vice President of Marketing for NOA) told us that they will focus on [a movie about] the adventure of Samus and then later start with something about Zelda and maybe Mario. When? Still no word, but don’t doubt that it won’t be something sensational” (translation mine).
Technically, this appears in an official magazine, but pundits so far remain somewhat skeptical since the Metroid efforts haven’t reached filming stage yet. However, this is the first official word that confirms that there are plans in the works for making Zelda on the silver screen. Seeing that we’re in the wake of Doom and several other video game titles, this really doesn’t come as a surprise, but as everyone mentioned before, this does come with some controversy.Follow This Entry | Trackback
