And as it's partnering with Illumination Entertainment, a division of Universal Studios, this time it'll most likely be an animated affair. And not a live-action fever dream of insanity, as found in 1993's Super Mario Bros.. Mario creator Shigeru Miyamoto will serve as co-producer on the project alongside Hollywood veteran Christopher Meledandri.
Whose production credits include the Despicable Me movies, the Minions movie, early Ice Age films, and before his shift into computer-generated animation live action classics like Cool Runnings and Sister Act 2: Back in the Habit.
Nintendo took to Twitter to make the announcement.
No release window has been set, but if sales of Super Mario Odyssey
are any indication, whenever it drops expect it to be huge.
