The video game company Nintendo has made official the acquisition of an anime studio that has worked on several top-tier titles.
For a long time it has been asked Nintendo to make series and animated films of its most important characters. Now they have decided to bet heavily on this, since they have bought Dynamo Pictureswhich could be called Nintendo Pictures and will handle visual content planning and production, including CG animation in the near future.
Dynamo Pictures have experience working with Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero, Yuri on Ice Y Earwig and the Witch, it is also a premium external studio for the main anime production companies in recent times. For now, the details of the operation have not been revealed, so we do not know how much money the video game giant has paid.
The first to have a series could be Link and Zelda.
In 1989, they already made a series about The Legend of Zelda, although on that occasion it was produced by DiC Entertainment and distributed by Viacom. Now it will have a new version, but it will already be made by the new animation studio of Nintendo. But they also have a lot of exclusive characters that they can use as Kirby, Donkey Kong, Mega Man, Zero Suit Samus and many more.
Mario Bros. will also have its film, but this time Nintendo has partnered with Universal Studios’ Illumination, makers of the minions and they intend to compete with Sega’s Sonic that has swept theaters. For the original version of the Mario Bros. movie they will have the voices of stars such as Chris Pratt, Anya Taylor-Joy, Seth Rogen, Jack Black and Charlie Day What Mario, Peach, Donkey Kong, Bowser and Luigirespectively.
We hope that soon they will announce all the plans they have, since without a doubt all the productions they make will raise a lot of expectations worldwide.
