Are you ready for a Splatoon cartoon? Which Nintendo licence would make a good cartoon?

It could be about the octopus alien things that are in the little story mode. Or it could be turned into a sports cartoon doing tournaments and stuff. Angry Birds got a cartoon and movie with far less.
Hey Nintendo, it's Golden Sun's 10th anniversary this year. Maybe give them a fucking short at the very least
I really want a Zelda cartoon/anime that's a reskin of Samurai Jack.
Also an Earthbound cartoon, but that will never happen.
I want a zelda cartoon in the artstyle of the early promotional art.
>not tara strong and Grey delisle
that said I'm not sure splatoon can really have plot, at best I can see 5 minutes gags show. Zelda could make a good cartoon, but if they really aim at reminding casuals of their IP existence all I see working is a Smash- kind of show where every body cross overs with every body.
Maybe a shounen version of captain N?
>Zelda that's a reskin of Samurai Jack
That's a total waste of world and theme. Zelda has a very vibrant universe with a colorful cast of reoccurring characters, it could really work with any theme from pure adventure to slice of life.
No, what could REALLY benefit from that idea is Metroid. Samus, alone, traveling across the cosmos, taking on bounties and fighting various freaky aliens to a cool hiphop-techno OST while searching the galaxy for any remaining Chozo.
I could see a set of OAV with simple plots. Metroid, Starfox, zelda, all can be sone in a pretty compact format since that's how most game's narrative work already. I doubt they'll touch Mario though, because of the voice. Mr Martinet could probably dub an english version, but in Japanese? nah
>A Zelda cartoon/anime with Wind Waker's art style.
Please, I've waited over a decade for this.
I never had a problem with Wind Waker's art style, and think to this day that it was just an over-the-top reaction to the game not being realistic like the one shown at E3. In fact I personally fucking love it, I think it's one of the best use of cel-shading in video games to this day.
If only it had another year in development. I imagine that some of the cut content would have further developed Ganon, seeing as how he's largely absent from the game until the very end, when he suddenly becomes a 10/10 character.

Will pokemon have a big revival?
PAPER MARIO CARTOON
IF WE CANT HAVE DECENT NEW GAMES AT LEAST GIVE US A SHOW
it's probably not popular enough/doesn't have enough mainstream appeal for it to be what they go for but you and i both know this is a goldmine for a cartoon series. they already made movies out of it.
>It's about how batshit insane a society built around blood sport and fashion would really be
can it be written by The Weaver?
and can bob be the main character?
The best thing that they can do to revive Pokemon is start all over from the beginning. Focus on a new protagonist. Team Rocket can return but instead chase after the new guy after completely giving up on Ash.
I have no qualms with that either.
don't get me wrong, i adore isabelle. overrated can still be good, it's just that i've been playing animal crossing since i got my gamecube as a kid and you can't deny the greatness of sable.
except for the fact that there's not actually any good fanart for sable and isabelle has a fuckton of great pictures. i couldn't even find something worthwhile to add to this post.
comfy is a great word for it.
>a series about team rocket.
>they go from trainer to trainer trying to steal pokemon but never succeed.
>at first are seen as a threat, but due to hijinx become a valued part of kanto.
>they're seen as somewhat good guys and everyone thinks their threat to steal pokemon is just training trainers to deal with the real team rocket despite the fact that they're very vocal about being the real team rocket
>they end up dismantling team rocket and getting Giovanni arrested by accident, but are seen as heroes.
>yfw Starfox show with Thunderbirds / Gundam Esque setting

Just make everyone in Splatoon ghetto
Splatoon Cartoon about an Octoling trying to fit into Inkling civilization after Octavio is defeated.
An Octoling spy that stays within Inkopolis, only to realize it's better overtime/Falls in love.
Or, you know, something about the Inklings.
>those franchises are dead
>both Metroid and Star Fox are getting new games this year.
My wishful thought is a Codename S.T.E.A.M adaptation/sequel anime.
Shut up Boco.
Starfy a shit.
actually yeah. have genndy direct it and someone else draw it, based on his amazing storyboards, but like.. yknow, showing actual art skills so she doesnt look like a twisted 2d abomination
as for zelda, get miyazaki all OVER that.
>someone actually remembers starfy
It'd only happen if Starfy got a new game in the west.
I WANT THIS AS A CARTOON! FUCK YOU SAKURAI FOR NOT PUTTING HER IN! AT LEAST MAKE A CARTOON OUT OF IT!
I think the French can pull it off.
Don't you think with the existence of Kirby that Starfy might be a little redundant?
Everyone is talking about western style cartoons when we are probably get just anime, which means that the series with the biggest chance of getting anything is Fire Emblem.
or Xenoblade, but Nintendo is really trying to push FE
Gennedy stuff is great, you see starwars? The man is great at making excellent artstyles.
Miyazaki is a great choice for anything, but he's really picky about what he does. I meant whoever the fuck ruined other m, not the guy who died in the car crash.
Zelda, I mean, you just need a talented team to get it to work, Majoras windwaker or OoT can work well.
The guys who made tmnt2k made a test reel for nintendo to witch deadpresidents declined vehemently despite it being pretty good.
Fuck off Boco
>the designs are so japanesey
The hell does that mean? The designs are no more Japanese than Splatoon's are.
Everything you grew up with is DEEEEAAAAAAAAD
I remember in that Sony hack, they mentioned reaching out to Nintendo for a Mario movie.
I really hope if one is ever done, It's Disney though, especially since that'd be a good relationship to start Wreck-It Ralph 2 with, and I've been dying to hear that officially announced that it's in production and not just rumored pre-production.
>The hell does that mean?
It pulls strongly and directly from japanese folklore. The yokai are much more specific than, say, Gen I pokemon designs. The result makes them more niche which gives them a less broad appeal than pokemon
I would take a slice of life Mario anime series.
>Mario and bowser are good friends.
>Luigi has a girl friend and it's not daisy
>seeing peach at work as a Princess
>rosalina is a the lovable bitch
>wario and waluigi get rich quick schemes.
>all Yoshi's Only say there name but everyone understands them.
sonic and friends
I can keep going.
Only about half of the Youkai are from actual folklore, and even then you don't need to be familiar with the mythology to be up the speed with the game or whatever.
And Pokemon is poor comparison to do this with, since there's at least 10 different Pokemon from G1 alone based directly on Japanese folklore and culture.
>Bombed in Japan
>Yet still manages to get new doujins and Cg sets
It's not fair, why can't my favorite failure get this attention?
I'm literally watching it right now for the same reason. Show is aesthetic as fuck.
Wrong yet again Boco
With the popularity of EQG on JP Netflix, S3 and 4 have been ordered to be dubed
They're still a lot easier to get out of context.
>oh, that's a derpy looking fish that turns into a giant raging monster
>oh a cute little fox with multiple tails, that turns into a big elegant fox with multiple tails
>oh, a fat black opera singer
The Yokai all have little stories behind them and their effects on humans. Pokemon are just animals.
It did fine, it's just not a mega hit like it is in Japan which is reasonable.
The show is watched by enough kids, and Level 5 games do decent but not very high by default.
For as bullshit as Nintendo can be, they aren't the type to be as petty as to assume being not "the next Pokemon" is damning and should give up on localizing the series.
Out of context YW isn't that hard to understand.
>They're ghosts/ otherworldly beings
>They do ghosts things
And the western idea of spirit while vastly different from the Japanese can still be adapted fairly reasonably.
And the deeper youkai backstories aren't necessary to understanding the game, and even the ones that are are blatantly told to you
>little cat loved his owner
>cat gets run over by a truck
>cat's spirit now haunts the road it was run over
anyways, the ratings weren't low, just lower than the main anime
i'm done, shit like this is why i left mlp back in like '13 hoping it would die out soon. i can't deal with 6 seasons, 3 eqg movies, and a fucking movie in 2017. JUST LET IT FUCKING DIE ALREADY.
CG Mario and Star Fox movies.
LoZ, FE, KI, Punch-Out, and Splatoon anime/cartoons.
Or fuck all that and give me Super Smash Bros. I fucking orgasmed at that Link vs. Pit fight in the Palutena trailer.
>Smash Bros. cartoon
don't make me dream
The aforementioned trailer:
But Sticker Star was great, flawed but great.
Super was the weakest as that was a Wonder Boy clone, still fun however.
Remember Tiny Toons & Animaniacs, we are getting that with the Squid Sisters.
No, just no, IG or bust.
>Sticker Star was great
you fucking take that back
Sticker Star was soulless garbage and was so bad that it made me stop playing video games for five months while I tried to remember why I liked them in the first place
How do we fix the Kirby anime?
Other than taking away Tiff and Tuff.
No, it was great.
The sticker mechanic needed some fixing (like using a basic attack for weaker enemies that do not use stickers) but it was not bad or soulless by any means, if anything it was better then Super Paper Mario at the very least.
The Kirby anime was great, but letting Kirby speak fully will be a start.
This could go in so many directions.
Kirby can be a really comfy show to watch when you're bored.
I just wish they continue the series by introducing the other antagonists like Necrodeus and Zero
Idol shit culture actually scares the shit out of me. The fact that a woman isn't allowed to date anyone because her fanbase might see her as 'unpure' or a 'slut' seems outright fucking pathetic.
And this is coming from a guy who shittalks women at every opportunity he gets.
I guess the pay is good?
>Release show with unique character designs, unique setting, and entertaining storylines into Japan
>Release same show but change designs to High School Girls, make the setting a High School, and make the storylines typical High School Musical shit
>Japan loves it
How can they have THAT much shit taste. It's fucking astounding.
It's Daisy and Mario who invited Link to dinner.
>Goofy protagonist who is carried around by a mature sidekick
>Silly protagonist who over the curse of the show becomes more competent and serious
>Competent protagonist surrounded by a goofy sidekick
>Self contained stories or continuity
>OC story line or follow the plot of a game
>Changing to another Link each season
The possibilities are infinite.
I already project hard onto Splatoon to symbolize the unrestrained, fun, social
sexual tension filledchildhood I never got to have myself.
I don't even enjoy the game that much, the universe is just the kind of thing that makes me want to live there.
An anime or cartoon would absolutely destroy me.
yeah and they were all shit too
Not complaining about getting another season or a theatrical movie, but this past season should have been the series finale, it sure fucking feels like it.
>Japan is pleb enough to actually like Horse Women
yfw WW Link is the most badass motherfucker in the Zelda series. Still can't believe they had him stab 'Dorf in the head in the "muh childish graphics" game.
Xenobladeanime when, Nintendo? All the characters are already recurring anime stereotypes, it wouldn't be that hard.
Make it about King DDD only, putting Kirby as the villan of every episode
The real question is, how would a Star Fox cartoon work?
>Pic related as the main team
>Takes place after SF/SF64
>No Krystal/Dinosaur Planet
>Post-war mercenary shenanigans
>short character arc stories (1-2 episodes max)
>2D everything else
>New big bad
I'd watch a Xenoblade anime only if it had a British dub with all the original voice actors.
Holy shit, I've wanted this since that Anime special that came out 10 years ago
>That Pikachu's voice still gives me orgasms to this day
The pay is awful, but a lot of them are encouraged by their parents to do it (or rather, forced to) and then it just becomes a spiral where they feel like they need to keep going it to stay relevant because this is their life now.
Any child idol is guaranteed to have a piece of shit parent behind them.
Miyu, from the unreleased Star Fox 2
I know right? It's hard to find decent fan art of her
>smash show where each episode has a different genre based on the characters that appear in the episode
>for example, a mario and sonic episode is a comedy adventure, or an episode where pacman meets cloud and they keep getting in each others way as a comedy action episode
>each episode is two 11 minute episodes shoved into a 30 minute time slate.
>inbetween the 11 minute episodes there are 2 minute mii shorts parodying popular media such ass adventure time, last man on earth, dbz, etc.
>has nothing to say back
>"hurr u mad? u triggered?"
>James crossdresses in every episode
The Kirby anime was good as an anime, but not as a Kirby anime
The main problem with me is that they made Kirby extremely stupid and he always needed Tiff and Tuff's help
They also made Kirby a baby for some reason
Jessie's my ultimate waifu, but man, james could get it too. goddamn.
all I want is nintendo to give us a decent pokemon dub
> All these assblasted kids only discovering NOW that tentacles and girls and hot thick slime are the primary ingredients of Japan's strongest entertainment industry.
Thats fucking bullshit, we stayed on topic about cartoons and animated movies more than any other fucking thread. i be the whomp thread about gun violent and japanese cruelty won't get touched.
Man, I really wanna fuck james in cosplay.
I'd suck the life out of his dick while he's dressed as nurse joy
