Supposed Hollywood interest in Nintendo and the 3DS

Posted By | On 25th, Jan. 2011

According to the Nintendo high-ups, namely president Satoru Iwata and Mario creator Miyamoto, have claimed that Hollywood is interested in their new handheld.

“When we show Nintendo 3DS to people in Hollywood, they’re intensely interested,” said Iwata. “I think lots of people would be happy if they could watch things like 3D movie trailers on their Nintendo 3DS.”

He added: “It is possible to distribute trailers to Nintendo 3DS. And it’s possible to distribute them to a Nintendo 3DS in a Wi-Fi environment while the user sleeps.”

Shigeru Miyamoto also added that “It’s still unpredictable, but I imagine we will both be able to profit. Game developers used to have a complex about Hollywood. There was an atmosphere of inequality, but recently Hollywood is taking Nintendo seriously. A long time ago, there used to be a lot of unusual projects out there – off the beaten path, you might say – that wanted to use Nintendo’s characters in that way, but these days lots of people say quite seriously that they want to make movies of Nintendo’s characters. I suppose one attraction is the wide range of ages covered by our fans. If those kinds of people seriously work with Nintendo 3DS, some interesting things could happen.”

We’ll see how this Hollywood interest pans out when the 3DS launches on March 25.
