[Let’s Talk] What would you want out of an animated Mario movie?

The Wall Street Journal reported this week that a new animated Mario movie is on the way. Illumination Entertainment, the studio behind the Despicable Me and Minions films, has been apparently pegged to work on Nintendo’s project. It’s far from an announcement, but The Wall Street Journal tends to be accurate with these kinds of reports.
Just the thought of any new Mario movie may strike fear into the hearts of dedicated Nintendo fans. There was a Super Mario Bros. movie way back in 1996, though many would say that it was downright terrible. If Nintendo is making a new Mario movie, you still have reason to be cautious. However, there would be a couple of things going for it.
First, Shigeru Miyamoto should be on board. The Wall Street Journal said that Miyamoto was pushing for a producer role. The fact that it would be animated also helps big time. Live action doesn’t make much sense for Mario, but animation is much more appropriate.
So let’s just say that this movie is in fact happening. Is there anything in particular you’d like to see from it? What about things you’d like to see Illumination Entertainment and Nintendo avoid? Let us know in the comments below.

ARMS update out now (version 4.0.1)
Posted on 22 hours ago by Brian(@NE_Brian) in News, Switch | 0 comments | 0 Likes
Nintendo released the latest major update for ARMS this past week. Version 4.0.0 added in support for the brand new fighter Misango.
Soon after that update premiered, Nintendo sent out another patch. The latest update for ARMS is now version 4.0.1.
As for what it does, that’s somewhat of a mystery at the moment. Nintendo hasn’t posted any patch notes anywhere – be it its Japanese website or North American support page. We can at least guess that it implements some fixes from 4.0.0. If we do get an official notice from Nintendo about the update, we’ll let you know.
