Is this movie from that Nintendo animation studio yamachi help set up?

So.... what possible storyline could something like that have...?

I really think Nintendo should make Anime series'/movies more often, Anime would suit titles like Metroid so well!!!

I was hoping that the Metroid movie was an Anime at first, but Oh well, I hope Animal Crossing will be Anime...ish.

Wait, wait...


Ok, so of all the franchises to chose Nintendo have chosen one which not only doesn't have a simple storyline, it doesn't have ANY storyline whatsoever.

This is fantastic. Smilie

Well I'll watch it. Smilie

i seriously don't know what kind of story line this could have...

Tilly (random name, not an animal :lolSmilie walks around town picking fruit... Bob comes up to her, offers advice on Lovely furniture... some evil villian comes to town and chops down every tree in town and Bob's fishcakes get stolen. Tom Nook laughs at all the money he is going to make from the tragedy of the evil tree-cutter...

hmm... yay? Smilie

Well I suppose its better than a real-life Animal Crossing Movie...

Well if Viva Panata can copy the crap out of Animal Crossing, why shouldn't Animal Crossing copy the crap out of Viva Panata? Smilie

Dear god let it not be Anime.

It's going to be shit and you jolly well know it.

What the hell is Viva Panata?

XBL Gamertag: James2t3

Maybe he means Panata with an accent on the n, that horse that you hit with a stick & sweeties come out of it Smilie

I think the story will somehow go like this, it starts out just a normal day in Animal Crossing World, the main character has a few buds over, one from Japan, one from Germany & one from Austrailia, when they find out that Tom Nook has gone missing, & that horrible disappearances have been happening with the villagers, they decide to buy some Master swords & Arwings & head out on an adventure. When they finally reach the Master Base, hidden deep within the mountains, they discover that Tom Nook was the one behind all this treachary all along, he captures & imprisons themm luckily, the Austrailian dude has the blue tooth keys to his Nintendog on him, so with a little push of a button, his little Mario cap wearing pal comes all the way from Auzzie to crash through the wall & help them, but there's another twist, you see, when they go upstairs trying to escape, the Jap notices some flashing lights coming from a room, they check it out, & see Tom Nook being brainwashed, & he looks in serious pain, quick Anime fighing scene full with blood & spilling guts follow, but this will be cut for the censored Western release, they then realise that it was Gulliver all along, sending sound waves accidentally from his ship, they all have a good cry & a reunion, & then we see a random Anime girl with long flowing hair crying happy tears on a cliff with a sunset in the background, then the credits come on, with a black screen, & corny Japanese music. Smilie

So yeah.

I'm actually looking forward to this to be honest. Not really the quality of the script or whatever, but more about how Nintendo is at CG...

~Getting on C3's massive tits since 2K5.~

Oh wow, this is amazing...
I think ill wait for the book though.

Why can't they do a Brain Training movie? Also no plot whatsoever.
Or maybe Electroplankton.


I think brain training would suit some sort of TV show like countdown, or maby just some weird zany japanese TV show were they have to take a dump from the top of a large sky scraper and land it on the bulls eye...Smilie

Electroplankton could be about some deadly sea plankton that at first make a lovly musical sound and glow in the sea but then they start sinking ships and slowly start breeding up streams detroying all water supplies! DUN DUN DUUUUUUUN!!

OI!!! Who said it would be CG EH?!?! It MIGHT be Anime!!!! Smilie

I sure as hel hope that the new Nintendo animation studio is Anime & not CG, I think I would much rather have an Anime Zelda than a CG Zelda... Smilie

Damn right! KK is a musical prodigy! I was thinking of changing my avy but now it STAYS so the uneducated can become educated to the ways of KK Slider.


...and so the KK cult begins Smilie

Now I am seeing the appeal.

I wonder if it will be as unspeakbly piss poor as Pokemon the movie and however many unspeakbly piss poor sequals they made...

Maybe they'll cut the crap and not do either boring CG or boring fucking anime and use a type of animation that actualy has charm: clay animation.

It's going to be shit and you jolly well know it.

ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh! Clayanimation(and all stop motion) animation is scary unless it's created by the people behind wallace and gromite.
