Nintendo would change what a movie is for Zelda film

Movie viewing

Can we just all agree that movie adaptations of video games are generally a bad idea? Sure, sometimes you get halfway decent ones, but we will all live in fear of a Super Marios Bros. movie repeat. This is why if we do see a Zelda movie, it will be something completely different, and probably awful.

Speaking with Kotaku, Eiji Aonuma explained that he and Miyamoto have discussed the idea of a Zelda film adaptation:

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.

Really? It’s not enough that second screen is becoming dominant in next gen gaming, you now want to bring it into the movies? What happened to sitting in the dark and mindlessly consuming copious amounts of popcorn until your lips hurt? What happened to making out in the back row? Now you want me to play games on my 3DS while also focusing on what’s happening on the screen? Either this will be a really boring movie to make space for gameplay, or a really boring game so that you can still pay attention to that big screen in front of you. This sounds like such a bad idea that will take away from all the enjoyable aspects of movie going. Don’t do this Nintendo!

            If I go silent today, know that either one of three things happened
            1. Gaming
            2. Drinking
            3. Passed out
