Default Nintendo Cartoons

We have a Pokemon anime that has been going for ages.

But we've also seen animated series for Kirby, Mario, and Zelda. (Ok, the Mario and Zelda cartoons were kind of... not good but still.)

Nintendo has also produced some shorts for Kid Icarus and Pikmin recently.

If given a proper budget, which Nintendo IP do you think would make a great animated series?

You could easily make a nice mini-series out of Metroid.

Nah, Metroid needs a movie, not a mini series.
By the way, I know about the rest, but is there really a Kirby series?

Apparently, one of the Sony leaks suggests Nintendo struck a deal with them to make a Mario movie.

they're probably going to squander it but i really hope they don't

the mario rpgs are a perfect example of a mario universe plot that feels familiar and plays upon the original, basic premise of the games well, while having great story and writing. i bet that a hypothetical mario film will both stick too close to the generic "peach gets captured, mario journeys to save her" plotline so as to not alienate people with surface-level familiarity with the games (which is a dumb line of thought), at the same time introducing unnecessary new elements that don't fit in.

they also need to give peach and bowser lots of screentime and dialog. they have some of the best writing in the RPGs (well, mostly the paper mario games in peach's case, don't remember her being too remarkable in M&L), but also could potentially be really boring, generic "damsel in distress and big baddie" if not given fun characterization. once again, like paper mario does, even if peach gets kidnapped, check in on how she's doing, have her interact with other characters, show that she's not brainless and defenseless. and just let bowser do his thing and be awesome. don't save him for just the final battle at the end, or make him too evil. there's a reason the RPGs are looked upon so highly when it comes to characterization of the universe.

i also don't think this movie is actually going to ever come out

I think they should redo Captain N: The Game Master. Update it with relevant new characters AND old characters. I would watch that!

F-Zero GP Legend was a thing. They should do it again but go with a different animation team I think

Considering how Sony handled the Smurfs, I hope it never does.
