Nintendo and Disney should work together - Spector

Would you like the two companies to collaborate?

We all know that Warren Spector loves Nintendo. Earlier this year he told us that he drooled over Miyamoto when he met his hero earlier this year and now the Epic Mickey chief would like to see Disney and Nintendo working together. He had better stop drooling then!

In an interview with Nintendo, Spector said "Disney has a culture of innovation that goes back 80 years and Nintendo has a culture of innovation. The two companies need to be working together, because their corporate cultures are so similar - and that is instantly apparent in the Nintendo 3DS."

Of course Square-Enix has collaborated with Disney for the Kingdom Hearts games but would you like tos ee Nintendo and Disney working together on a game?

Maybe we could have some Disney characters in a new Smash Bros. game.

    Jeez, does this guy ever shut up? Every time I visit a site he seems to have said something else borderline ridiculous...

    i think its a great idea especially considering Disneys' efforts in pushing 3d movies and Nintendo wanting to have 3d films on the 3ds.

    Interesting. Maybe Mickey appearing in the next Smash Bros? Or maybe a new Duck Tales game. I know a lot of people would love to see that

    Love you Warren Spector.
    That's a blooming great idea :)
    With Disney helping Nintendo out with their 3d films for the 3ds we might be seeing some Disney characters in Nintendo own games.

    I for one would like too see a disey character or two in the next (if there will be) Smash Bros game as I think for Smash bros the more the merrier as long as they have a descent or historic gaming background.
    Mickey would probably be first choice but who elso would there be, oswald could be what falco was for fox but that would be a bit obvious.
    Or a new game all together, a game not disimilar to kingdom hearts would be good where you search the different areas with Mario and Mickey.

    Hell yes. I could see Disney working with Nintendo to deliver movies to the 3DS. Should they do that, I'll be waiting for Warner Bros to put the Harry Potter movies on the 3DS.

    This guy is really full of himself. Not only does he go on and on about Epic Mickey being the best game ever, but now he's saying that Disney and Nintendo should team up.

    He's a fanboy that needs to stop humping the game industries leg!

  12. HNF1 Thursday 25th Nov 2010 at 16:38

    Really he just wants to work with Nintendo himself. He's hinting at him having a go at working on a Zelda title probably, the cheeky legend.

    The mad Doctor VS Waluigi?

  14. Avalanche2114 Thursday 25th Nov 2010 at 17:37

    I guess it will be OK if they do join forces.
    Just keep Hannah Montana out of it.

  15. FinalStar Thursday 25th Nov 2010 at 17:38

    Is it just me or does he say alot of things?

    It sounds like a cool idea Disney and Nintendo working together, but no, just no for the Super Smash Bros idea. I would hate it if Mickey ever appeared in it. Or any other Disney character for that matter.

    Even Captain Hook? :shock:

    I think Disney and Nintendo working together would be a good idea, as long as Disney keep there hannah montana stuff and other rubbush to themselves, and be more like what they were amazing at bringing fairytales and stories like the Jungle Book, Snow White etc to life.

  18. xzeldax Thursday 25th Nov 2010 at 20:36

    As long as they don't bring hannah montana and similar rubbish like that of recent years then I'm all for it!

    ...Maybe a new ducktales game? I had that for the Game Boy and I loved it!! Who knows, maybe we get a new one as well as the retro one on the 3DS ;)

  19. fisher2007 Thursday 25th Nov 2010 at 21:15

    nope.

  20. NovaGrovr Friday 26th Nov 2010 at 00:10

    *Cough Cough*

    NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

    NO NO
    NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

    They should work together on a new Paper Mario it would work for that. Just no sports titles, Mario and Mickey at the Olympics, God no. Mickey should be in the next Smash Bros along with Sonic and the two characters should really appear exclusively on Nintendo consoles they would probably sell better anyway on Nintendo machines rather than the others.

  22. Lozridge Friday 26th Nov 2010 at 20:28

    I second NovaGrovr's comment :)

  23. Haru Waji Friday 26th Nov 2010 at 22:54

    I've always wanted them to work together... I think its a great idea and NOOOO that doesn't meant they need to do cross overs with this and that, just an original game made by the two companies....I think it would be epic.

  24. 3MEGAMAN Monday 29th Nov 2010 at 00:02

    i think spector is right, but it needs to be original games because i am sure disney interactive have some good game ideas that can be successfull new ips.
