Today, Hiroshi Yamauchi announced a plan to create an advanced new animation studio for theatrical releases, which will be formally proposed to the board in October.
The first production will be based on the Ogura Hyakunin Isshu, a famous collection of classical Japanese poetry. There will be an opening ceremony at the famous villa, named Shiguretei, where the collection was compiled.
Yamauchi mentioned that he wants these productions to not only be popular in Japan, but also overseas. Also, the studio will be situated near the game designers for easy access. He also mentioned this would be a good risk for Nintendo to take.
