Hey guys, Jana here,
Netflix is determined to make themselves a name for original television and each announcement simply adds weight to the flag they’ve staked in the ground once held firm by cable TV. Next up for the media giant is a live-action adaptation of Ninetendo’s hit videogame franchise, ‘The Legend of Zelda‘.
The streaming platform is adapting the game into a ‘Game of Thrones‘-like series although much tamer in execution. Nobody is ready to see Link and Zelda bump uglies, that would just destroy my childhood! The timing for this particular announcement could be, in part, incredibly helpful in aiding Netflix’s launch into Japan this year. While this is a boon for Netflix, it seems Nintendo may provide for more interest in the matter, this means the game platform is open and interested in taking one of their greatest characters and most successful games to be used for adaptation into other mediums. Could we see the ‘Super Smash Bros.‘ series I’ve secretly hoped for?!
