From Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle to Cadence of Hyrule, Nintendo of late hasn’t been shy with entrusting their legendary franchises with third-party studios. With the Mario, Link, and Samus open for reinterpretation, Ian from Adventure Rules and I shoot our shot and slide into Nintendo’s DMs with a few collaborations we’d like to see Nintendo swipe right for. Without spoiling too much, our brainstorming takes us to wildly different takes on one of Nintendo’s newest franchises, an epic RPG that makes room for new heroes to take the spotlight, and a record-scratching take on Nintendo’s iconic music!
Head over to Adventure Rules right now and check out “Keys to the Kingdom: Handing Nintendo Properties to Other Developers“!
It was a pleasure and an honour to work with Ian on this! His ability to write openly from the mind and from the heart makes him one of my favourite creators. If you don’t already, make sure to follow his blog and Twitter for more of his great content!
