There was once a time when Nintendo led the way when it came to video games, with the name Nintendo being one of the biggest brand names of the face of the Earth, known by people all over the world. While Nintendo is still a brand name that most people will be familiar with, they are no longer the powerful brand that they once were, slipping down the list at a rapid rate.
Nintendo have slipped so far down the list, that it has been claimed that they will not even make the top 100 in 2015, which shows just how big a decline they have been experiencing in recent years. That decline is also shown by the fact that Nintendo experienced a 33% drop in brand value in 2014, putting it right on the edge of dropping out of the top 100. So what can they do to get themselves back to greatness.
Well, one idea has been the suggestion that Nintendo could turn to making some of their video games into movies, bringing some of their more popular characters to the big screen. While the original Super Mario Bros. movie was a huge flop, with the right writers, director and cast, it could actually become a big success. Then we also have the likes of The Legend of Zelda, Donkey Kong, or even have a go at getting a Tetris movie out there.
With that said, there have not been many video games that have been successfully adapted for the big screen, as Nintendo know all too well. However, if they were to try it and get it right, it could bring Nintendo right back to the greatness that they once enjoyed.
