Either way it's probably going to suck.

Guess the deal with Avi Arad didn't pan out.

It seems like Nintendo doesn't really hole that tight lock on their IPs anymore as they have just thrown their IP carelessly to the questionable company Ubisoft and will probably do it again to the also questionable Illumination.

Ubisoft made a good game. It is clear because it is one this lists for best family game and for best strategy game. To even be considered to be on the list is amazing.

As for Illumination, with their most famous work being Despicable Me series and Minions movie, you can see why Nintendo choose a company that can make characters not have speech, like Mario and Luigi, and still have others that speak, like Peach and Bowser?. Illumination works for Universal studies, which we were told they were going to build a Mario,-though-technically-it's-Nintendo,-themed area in their parks. Makes sense to choose one of the companies working for Universal. I see this having great potential. (Also, please Nintendo, make sure they don't go overboard with stupidity plus don't have something that will make Mario not good.)

Sure I hate the minions (though I did think that first Despicable Me movie was decent) but from a business standpoint I can see why they would go to them since Minions bank like *bleep*.

Plus one could argue Toads already fill that annoying loud minion ish thing.
Thank you for taking the time to read this sig. This sig loves you.

WOOOOO!!! FINALLY! A BRAND-SPANKING NEW ANIMATED MARIO MOVIE AT LONG LA--wait, did you say Illumination?

Well even though I kinda would prefer to see Studio Ghibli or Studio Trigger for example try to take a spin at a fluently animated 2D Mario movie, I won't look a gift horse in the mouth just yet. The first Despicable Me movie was alright before the series got assimilated by the accursed monoeyed corn kernels.

sure why not

Being on a list for an award doesn't really mean anything.  I mean for like the Academy Awards Suicide Squad was on several lists a-wait no that's a bad example.
