Thanks to success The movie “Super Mario Brothers”., Nintendo seems eager to keep that money train going. Which property will they choose to adapt to the big screen next? Will it be The Legend of Zeldaor maybe another pokemon will the movie be released in theaters?
The former franchise seems like a safe bet given the success The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom the same. Maybe Nintendo doesn’t need to aim as high as theaters to attract fans. A small screen adaptation could be great, and these anime studios could help create a killer version of Link’s next great adventure.
MAPPA did a lot of great work in the last couple of years in power. A man with a chainsaw was their big hit from 2022 that perfectly combined 2D and 3D animation. They tend to work on a lot of darker shows, so it would be a good game for them to adapt The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask.
It is definitely the darkest game in the series that revolves around death and grief. The hybrid art style will adhere to this strange world that Link finds himself in. It would be interesting to see just how creepy MAPPA can make the moon.
6 Studio Ghibli
Studio Ghibli is the obvious choice when it comes to famous anime studios. They are like the Japanese Disney with many award-winning films under their belt. Their animation is second to none as the budgets of their films are extremely high along with the dedication of the artists in their work.
There were already fan models The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild in the style of Studio Ghibli. This makes sense considering the cel-shaded art style definitely looks anime. Also, many of the designs and themes could have been inspired by their films, e.g Princess Mononoke.
5 Studio Trigger
Rose Studio Trigger from the ashes of another studio, Gainax, which was responsible for such hits as Fuli Bullets, Gurren Lagannand Neon Genesis Evangelion. Their first original name after formation was Kill to kill in the center of which is a young high school girl who seeks revenge. She wore a magical sailor girl uniform that could transform, and her fighting classmates also had changing clothes.
An excellent game for them will be adaptation The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes. Links in this game could wear costumes with different abilities added. Trigger Studios knows how to design clothes well, and they also have a knack for strong female characters, so maybe the three versions of Zelda could replace Link in the adaptation.
It was sunrise been around for centuries and they are mainly responsible for animation Gundam the anime Their latest incarnation of the series is called Gundam Mobile Suit: Mercury Witch. The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom would be a good game for them to adapt because of this love of mecha.
This is a bit of a spoiler, but there is a fifth party member who can join Link in the game. They live spiritually as a robot that Link can ride like a mech. The anime may take place in a rebuilt version of Hyrule, where Purah has built a unit to patrol the kingdom.
3 Animation by Toei
Toei Animation is another anime studio that has been around forever, almost as long as the medium. They have too many anime to name, but their biggest show is right now One piece. Because they revive a lot of water, The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker will be the perfect choice for them.
In this game, players can swim around, but there are also many land segments. It gets more creative in the DS sequel, The Legend of Zelda: The Phantom Hourglass, so maybe it will be even better. They may also make an anime as a third continuation of this sub-series.
Ufotable is a studio he doesn’t have as much anime as some of the others here. The one that matters Demon Slayer, which is huge. Their film alone broke records that anime had never seen in the West.
Since they have a lot of stylistic action, a spin-off in this series would work better than the main title. Khairul Warriorsthe original or the sequel could be a great game for them. It will also give the studio more wiggle room in the lore department.
1 Studio Vit
Studio Vit a name for itself, embracing the majority Attack on Titan arc before replacement. Another, more recent hot anime of theirs Ranking of kings which is unlike anything else on the market. It looks like a mixture of European cartoons and anime.
The cute aesthetic of this anime will do The Legend of Zelda: Four Swords Adventures which also had a unique style to the series on the GameCube. Ranking of kings follows a young prince in his efforts to become the strongest in the world with the spirit of a true adventurer. Following the four young Links would be somewhat close in tone.
The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom was released on May 12, 2023 and is available on Switch.
