We’re sure there are many gamers out there who wouldn’t mind seeing a Zelda movie being made, but given that video game movies hardly turn out the way they’re intended, Nintendo probably does not want to sully the name of one of their biggest franchises. However if and when such a movie were to be made, it seems that movie goers might need to bring their Nintendo 3DS handheld console into the cinemas if they wish to be able to enjoy the movie on a whole new level.
Speaking to the folks at Kotaku, Eiji Aonuma revealed that he and Nintendo’s Shigeru Miyamoto have discussed the possibility of such a movie in the past, but instead of merely adapting the game into a movie, they would make it interactive. “If we were to make a Zelda title, if we had interest in doing that, I think really what would be most important to us is to be able to play with the format of a movie, make it more interactive, like you’re able to take your 3DS into the theater and that leads you into participating in it somehow. We wouldn’t want to make it the same as any other movie. We want to somehow change what a movie is.” It’s definitely an intriguing idea, but what do you guys think? Would you love to see such a Zelda movie being made?
