Nintendo CEO Satoru Iwata: Report on Live-Action Zelda Series is Incorrect
posted on by Lynzee Loveridge
Nintendo CEO Satoru Iwata told Time that the rumors of a live-action Legend of Zelda series are not accurate. He told Time, "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, but I can at least confirm that the article in question is not based on correct information.”
The Wall Street Journal reported last month that Netflix and Nintendo were working on a live-action Legend of Zelda series and that the aim of the show is to create a Game of Thrones for families.
Nintendo commented last month that it "will not comment on the rumors or speculations." Netflix also refused to respond to The Wall Street Journal's request for information on the matter.
