Earlier NX Rumor is now, basically confirmed by the US Trademark Office

In an interesting discovery via the US trademark office, it seems that the NX version of Zelda: Breath of the Wild may come on a game cartridge.


It was rumored before that the new Nintendo NX system, since it was to be both an console and portable setup, that it would most likely use 'cartridges' for its games, plus on some of Nintendo earlier patents for a new gaming console, the section regarding 'disc-based' is missing, and now comes the trademark for the upcoming Zelda: Breath of the Wild game, and in its description it mentions both 'discs' and 'cartridges', whereas previous Wii U games of course mention only 'disc' and 3DS games only mention 'cartridge', and we know the new Zelda is not coming out for 3DS, but for both Wii U and NX, so that means 'disc' for Wii U...

To Make A New Updated Super Mario Movie

It may be a cult classic but the 1993 Super Mario Bros. movie was a critical and commercial bomb. Despite the fairly obvious lesson that the Mushroom Kingdom and Hollywood don't mix. So try it again!!


A bunched of leaked emails from the large Sony Pictures hack last week, has appeared online, and it shows that Sony is chatting with Nintendo in working out details for a new Super Mario movie, even tho the last one in '93 bomb'ed at the box office, I guess they figure with today's generation and new advanced moving making, and maybe in 3D filming, that an updated Mario movie will be an success.
