Former Nintendo president proposes move into film industry

Japanese console giant Nintendo is considering a foray into the movie industry, it emerged today, with former president Hiroshi Yamauchi telling a press conference that he plans to propose an animated film project to the firm.

Speaking at an event in Kyodo, Yamauchi, who still serves as an adviser to the company and owns a significant shareholding, said that he intends to propose the new venture at Nintendo's management meeting in October. His intention is to develop an animated film - it's not clear whether this would be traditionally animated, or computer animated like Square Enix' forays into this area - based on the works of a Japanese poet from the famous Ogura Hyakunin Isshu compilation of poetry.
