Nintendo has discussed interactive Zelda movie
Series producer Eiji Aonuma says he would be interested in big-screen adaptation of RPG series only if it allowed viewers to interact with their 3DS in a theater.
If Nintendo ever releases a Legend of Zelda movie, it will not be a traditional passive experience, but rather an interactive one, according to series producer Eiji Aonuma.
"This is something that me and Mr. Miyamoto talked about," Aonuma told Kotaku. "If we were to make a Zelda [movie], if we had interest in doing that, I think really what would be most important to us is to be able to play with the format of a movie, make it more interactive, like you're able to take your 3DS into the theater and that leads you into participating in it somehow. We wouldn't want to make it the same as any other movie. We want to somehow change what a movie is."
As Kotaku points out, Disney tried something similar earlier this year with The Little Mermaid - Second Screen Live in theaters. Viewers could download an app and bring their iPad with them to participating theaters to interact with the celebrated movie to play games and sing along.
It was revealed earlier this year that Astro Boy outfit Imagi Studios pitched Nintendo on a Legend of Zelda movie around 2007.
