As a video game company, Nintendo is going through a less than stellar period right now, financially speaking. However, regardless of what the company’s console sales look like, one thing that will always keep Nintendo as a potential power player is their stable of games and characters that they have created. Now, a report has come out that Nintendo may look to those classic franchises to bring in some money in a new area, the movies.

In an interview with Japan’s Asahi Shimbun newspaper, Nintendo President Tatsumi Kimishima said that the company is currently in negotiations with a number of studios in order to find a partner to go into full production on a series of films showcasing their popular characters. While Nintendo has licensed their characters out for films before, with fairly disastrous results, the plan this time around is for Nintendo to retain creative control and to actively be involved in the production. We think this is a fantastic idea, and we know exactly what films they should start with.

The Legend of Zelda
Let’s start with the most obvious one. The Legend of Zelda is one of Nintendo’s top franchises, and with the exception of a comically bad animated series from the '90s, it’s never seen a proper adaptation. When rumors of a Zelda series coming to Netflix started last year, fans went nuts. People want this. The Legend of Zelda has everything that your standard fantasy epic needs, and audiences have shown that they will pay money to see a good one. Nintendo should not delay a second on making this one happen.
