From the makers of Despicable Me, Illumination Entertainment and Nintendo have announced a Super Mario animated film.


The Super Mario animated movie project will be co-produced by Illumination Entertainment founder Chris Meledandri and Nintendo director Shigeru Miyamoto.

The film will be funded by Universal Studios and Nintendo, which unfortunately wraps all the information we have to go on so far. There is no official release date as of yet, but as the year rolls on we are certain that more news will surface about this project.

Jaks love for technology and more specifically PC gaming began at 10 years old, it was the day his dad showed him how to play Age of Empires on a old Compaq PC. Ever since that day, Jak fell in love with games and the progression of the technology industry in all its forms. Instead of the typical FPS PC gamer, Jak enjoys the likes of a solid MMO, RPG, or a single-player linear story. More importantly, though, he holds a very special spot in his heart for RTS games.
