The Wall Street Journal, citing an anonymous source, previously reported earlier this year that Nintendo was working on a live-action Legend of Zelda TV show for Netflix. However it now seems that this may not be true.
“The article in question is not based on correct information,” company president Satoru Iwata says.
Satoru Iwata, Nintendo president, has now 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.”
I was actually very excited about the production of a live-action Legend of Zelda TV show, being a big Legend of Zelda fan myself. So this news does come as a disappointment. However, Iwata’s statement does not completely deny that a live-action Legend of Zelda TV show could be developed in the future.
