Nintendo’s Not So Sure About a Legend of Zelda on Netflix

Last month, The Wall Street Journal brought word that a live-action Legend of Zelda series was in the works at Netflix. Though further details have been a bit sketchy, okay, really sketchy since then, it was curious just how long it took for Nintendo to make a statement on such a potentially big project. Now the company has, of sorts.

Speaking to TIME Magazine regarding their dual announcement of both their latest mobile deal with DeNA and their next game platform, Nintendo CEO Satoru Iwata made note of the Legend of Zelda series in passing.

“As of now, I have nothing new to share with you in regard to the use of our IPs for any TV shows or films,” Iwata said, “but I can at least confirm that the article in question is not based on correct information.”

While it doesn’t look like we should be holding our breath on any real word, it does seem like Nintendo’s not ruled out anything in particular…not quite yet.

What do you think? Is a Legend of Zelda TV series still fated to happen, one way or another? Let us know.

    I’m happy that the Netflix rumor is false. Saying they wanted a Legend of Zelda show to be a kid friendly version of Game of Thrones made me feel uneasy. If there is going to be a LoZ show, it better be an amazingly drawn anime! The Super Smash Bros. video of Link and Pit battling makes me want a LoZ anime right now 😀
