Kimishima also said that Nintendo is creating a new mobile game, Mario Kart Tour, that will debut during fiscal year 2018, or April 2018 to March 2019.

Anyway, despite a supposed video game movie curse making sure that almost every film released as an adaptation has sucked badly (and even the better ones are only better because they suck less), Nintendo and Illumination (best known for making the word "banana" a whole joke in the Despicable Me franchise) are teaming up to bring Mario to the big screen.

Super Mario Bros movie will be co-financed by Universal Pictures, Nintendo and shall be distributed in theaters worldwide by Universal Pictures. Nintendo will partner with Illumination Entertainment for the film, which will be produced by Mario creator Shigeru Miyamoto and Illumination founder Chris Meledandri. Illumination has the prowess to make a great CGI family-friendly flick, and having Miyamoto on board is a major plus to ensure everyone involved gets the heart of the character right.

There were rumors of the deal back in November until Nintendo confirmed the rumors late Wednesday night. The movie bombed in the box office, losing nearly $27 million and being critically panned.

La pause geek Jeu vidéo : un nouveau Crash Bandicoot pour 2019 ?
Rumeurs ou pas, Activision serait fou de ne pas utiliser ses ressources pour continuer sur l'énorme succès de cette réédition. Et cerise sur le gâteau, un nouveau jeu Crash Bandicoot devrait sortir en 2019! Pour le moment, on parle d'une simple rumeur.

Nintendo of America revealed the new movie on Twitter earlier today.

No word on casting or a release date just yet.

Nintendo has recently shed some more light on the upcoming Super Mario Bros. animated movie. The film debuted in fourth-place overall in 1993, and was directed by Roland Joffe. Dennis Hopper, John Leguizamo, and Bob Hoskins were the stars of the movie.

Video games have had a notorious time trying to break into Hollywood.

It's part of the company's plan to increase its earnings from other industries.
