Mother 3 localization Shigesato Itoi

EarthBound creator Shigesato Itoi recently shared a few words about fan requests for a Mother 3 localization in English. Itoi shared a few words about the game in the Earthbound, USA documentary that was just released this week.

He started out by mentioning how he’d “love for people in the U.S. to play Mother 3.” Nintendo was apparently offered the fan translation to use, but it “wasn’t quite as simple as that.”

Itoi said:

super mario bros music

NHK published an interview with Koji Kondo, who has been composing music for the Super Mario Bros. games since the very first entry on the NES. The discussion delved into various topics including his work on the first title, The Super Mario Bros. Movie, and more.

Given how rare it is to see Kondo involved with such an in-depth interview, we went ahead and translated the full talk. You can read it below. 

Nintendo dropped some news out of nowhere late on Tuesday that it’s moving forward with a live-action movie based on The Legend of Zelda. We don’t have many details just yet, but Shigeru Miyamoto and Avi Arad will act as producers. Nintendo and Arad Productions will be producing it together while Sony Pictures Entertainment is involved with financing. In case you missed it, we have the full news here.

Rather than going the animated route as we saw with Super Mario, Zelda will be the first live-action Nintendo movie of the modern era. And since we know so little about it, that leaves for plenty of speculation.

Would you like to see the movie adapt the story of a specific game? Who do you think should be cast as Link? Let us know in the comments.

Zelda movie Shigeru Miyamoto

Shigeru Miyamoto has commented further on the recently-announced live-action movie based on The Legend of Zelda. This comes as part of a Q&A session that took place during Nintendo’s financial results briefing this week.

Miyamoto previously indicated that the project has been in the works for many years, but he has since clarified that he’s been talking with Avi Arad for about ten years. He also spoke about taking the proper time to create something Nintendo is satisfied with.

The Super Mario Bros. Movie Netflix

If you’re looking for another streaming option with The Super Mario Bros. Movie, you’ll be happy to hear that it will be joining Netflix very soon. The platform announced today that it can be seen on its service starting December 3, 2023.

The Super Mario Bros. Movie previously appeared on Peacock. It’s taken a few months for the film to begin reaching some of the other prominent streaming services as a deal prevented it from going elsewhere. You should be able to watch The Super Mario Bros. Movie on Netflix over the next ten months. Expect it to return on Peacock for another four months after that.
