Zelda movie would have to be interactive, says Eiji Aonuma

Release Date: 16/10/2013

With movie adaptations of Need for Speed, Mass Effect, Assassin's Creed and Splinter Cell all in the pipeline, it looks like we could be on the verge of a revolution in credible Hollywood versions of gaming properties.

One company that has kept itself at arm's length from the movie business is Nintendo. After the disastrous Super Mario Bros movie back in the 1990s, the Japanese giant has kept all of its top franchises - with the notable exception of Pokémon - off the big screen.

But, as always, rumours persist about a Legend of Zelda movie and now series producer Eiji Aonuma has revealed that a cinema version of the game is something he's discussed with Shigeru Miyamoto. However, if their wild idea ever happens, it won't be like any movie you've ever seen before.

"This is something that me and Mr. Miyamoto talked about," Aonuma admitted to Kotaku. "If we were to make a Zelda title, 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 theatre 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."

For now, fans can revel in the recently released Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker HD remake for Wii U, or look forward to Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds for the 3DS on November 22nd.
