It has to better than last time... right?
To wrap up their financial briefing this morning in Japan, Nintendo officially confirmed their long rumored partnership with Illumination to produce an animated Super Mario Brothers movie. No details or proposed release window were given, merely a confirmation of the project's existence. It has however been confirmed that Shigeru Miyamoto will be co-producing the film, alongside Illumination CEO Chris Meledandri.
Illumination is perhaps best known for their work on the popular Despicable Me franchise. The project is being co-financed by both Nintendo and Universal, with whom Nintendo recently partnered to create theme park attractions at Universal Studios.
