If you told me 10 years ago that Nintendo and Sega were still pushing each other to create things, I would have laughed in your face. I guess the success of the Sonic films caused Nintendo to finally throw their hat into the ring for their own animated feature. I have to say, it looks like Nintendo and Illumination Entertainment (Despicable Me, Sing) considered just about everything.
Mario Karts? Check.
Tanooki Suit? Check.
Fire Flowers? Yep, they’re here, too.
Rivalry with Donkey Kong? Yep.
All the Yoshis? Yep, all of them.
Possible references to Luigi’s Mansion? Seems that way.
I’m pretty excited to see what happens with this. The Super Mario Bros. Movie premieres in theatres next April.
