UPDATE: Some mistranslations have been set straight by Dr. Serkan Toto.

  • Nintendo is not planning to make live action movies because of the infamous SMB movie.
  • Animation is likely where Nintendo will focus their efforts
  • A time frame is not given outside of 1<x<5 years
  • No specific IP has been mentioned just Zelda and Mario as examples

Additionally, Nintendo will use the money earned from selling the Seattle Mariners to fund this project.
